Power Responsive

Sustainability First is collaborating with National Grid on a major programme of work to promote participation of demand side flexibility (DSF) in the GB electricity system. This means that customers and generators increase, decrease or shift their electricity demand at certain times or in response to requests, to help with overall management of the system. They are rewarded for offering these services. DSF reduces system costs and the need for peaking plant. The programme has involved raising awareness of the opportunities and challenges for customers to respond flexibility, helping develop the market by overcoming barriers and improving understanding of the contribution DSF makes today - through the development of an Annual Report and metrics. Sustainability First provides strategic advice and supports programme delivery including the high-level Power Responsive steering group.
