Demand response policy and programs

Conference: Metering, Billing, CRM/CIS Australia and New Zealand 2005.
Location: Melbourne
Presenter: David Crossley
Abstract:  Demand response is the successor to generations of load management programs in Australia, Asia, Europe and North America.  DR works in much the same way as interruptibility with the following additions as well as reduced electricity tariffs, end-user participants in DR programs may receive payments for the availability of demand response and the load reductions actually achieved; a third party DR Provider often enrols end-user participants in DR programs and maintains communication with both the system operator and the participants; communication between the system operator, the DR Provider and end-user participants is usually automated; and remote meter reading and telemetry enable all parties to see the impact of DR actions in near real time.
