Demand Response - Resilience & Gamification

As consumers large and small embrace technologies like EVs, on-premises generation and storage this will create new opportunities and challenges for the traditional utilities.

Can consumer behaviour and consumption management combine with flexible capacity in a real world Demand Response plan? How can we empower residential & SME consumers as they embrace onsite generation and behind the meter technologies? How can Industrial & Large Energy Consumers leverage demand response to manage peak loads and hit energy management targets?

Through a mixture of sessions we will explore the changing behaviours of the consumers, the future of demand response and the potential and possibility of grid scale dynamic demand.

Demand response presents an opportunity to take energy management to the next level. Peak loads, energy consumption behaviour, intelligent building assets and onsite generation capabilities can be channelled into automated demand response programmes.

In particular industrial and  commercial consumers represent a significant opportunity for grid actors to balance peak demand, distributed energy generation and energy supply. But how can this be mutually beneficial for all actors whilst contributing towards a sustainable energy system?

This is where the 'Living Grid' comes in! Launched in 2016, and backed by Sainsbury’s, Aggregate Industries, United Utilities and Tarmac, this movement is harnessing intelligent demand response to create a new approach to our energy system.

These companies are working together, and calling for others to join them, to create an electricity network that takes inspiration from nature to deliver, store and use electricity in the most optimal way possible.

Using insights and experiences from the field and vision for the future, our experts cover themes below and more during this session;

  • Consumer behaviour, consumption and flexible capacity
  • Innovative technologies including battery power and storage systems
  • Integrating energy efficiency programmes and sustainability goals
  • The role of low carbon and distributed generation

Empowering Residential & SME Consumers with Demand Response

Broadcast Date: Thu 01 Sep 10:00 UTC


How best to take advantage of innovations and digitisation of consumer energy? How will demand response evolve to cope with customer premises technologies like storage and PV? What will next gen demand response look like?

    Project Manager of EMS


The smart energy landscape is set to afford residential consumer and Small Medium Enterprises (SMEs) the opportunity to take control of their energy destiny. From onsite generation and rise of prosumers to increasing availability of energy data and contextual information via the IoT the energy sector is seeing a grass roots consumer revolution.

But how best to take advantage of these emerging paradigms? Demand response has been positioned as a grid led initiative for peak load balancing. But digitalisation and consumer premises technologies like storage and PV are forcing these programmes to evolve. So what will next gen demand response look like?

In this session our experts will cover the following points and more;

  • The rise of the prosumer with onsite micro generating capability
  • Impact and opportunities with behind the meter storage adoption
  • Recent contextual and technology trends in demand

Attendees will gain a sense of the changing residential and SME consumer space and how best to leverage these changes to implement next generation Demand Response.

There have been numerous efforts to advance demand response in the EU and USA but can these regions learn from each other? What are the main differences? And where are the synergies and nuances?

In this session our speakers will address key points including and not limited to the following;

  • Understanding the role of AMI and grid edge technologies
  • Supporting beneficial consumption patterns & encouraging prosumers
  • The role of market structures and policies

Attendees will gain a sense of how demand response is progressing in these two exciting smart grid spaces, what lessons can be learnt and pitfalls avoided from shared experiences.
