Conference overview

As the economy expands and energy needs increase, there is a need to preserve options for better generation facilities. Here the significant steps towards the development of Demand Response should be considered.

As energy efficiency goals increase globally, integrated demand-side management is being driven by regulatory pressure. Demand Response has already gained the policy support in Europe. Proposed efforts to provide opportunity for new technologies, such as storage and demand response hamper consumer participation and encourage investments into flexible energy generation.

Participation of active consumers and their interactions with producers in the energy system are crucial factors in order to make the electricity system more flexible.

New demand on our energy system are mean than enhanced capabilities are essential. In order to meet new challenges, DR programs should be used as a fundamental part of the state’s energy planning and strategy.
