How is it possible to participate in a Demand Response programme in Italy?

In Italy, a client can provide a Demand Response service by participating in an Aggregate Virtual Consumption Unit (UVAC in Italian) in accordance with Resolution 300/2017. The requisites for creating a UVAC include a modulation capacity that does not fall below 1 MW and the capability to modulate the intake from the grid within 15 minutes of receiving the dispatching order from Terna and to sustain that modulation for at least 3 consecutive hours. UVACs can participate in the Spot Dispatching Services Market by making bids presented by the Balancing Service Provider or by offering fixed-term services to Terna for the periods requested by the latter through specific tenders. In that case, payment will involve a fixed component for providing the availability to offer the service plus remuneration following actual activation.
