How does Demand Response work?

Generally speaking, a demand response event will involve the following steps:

  1. The grid operator predicts a grid stability problem and sends a balance notification to the aggregator
  2. The aggregator receives the balance order and uses special algorithms to optimise the distribution of the request between the clients in its portfolio to reduce or increase their energy consumption 
  3. The designated client modulates their consumption/generation level (this can be done either automatically or manually)
  4. The load modulation is made available to the grid operator
  5. Following verification that the service has been correctly provided, the client receives the payment agreed at the contractual phase.
