Grid360 DA Demand Response Application Overview
Demand response programs enable utilities to reduce energy consumption during an unexpected shortage of power to avoid larger blackouts and also to shift energy consumption from on-peak to
off-peak hours to minimize incremental energy costs.
There are many challenges in making a demand response program a success. Utilities must determine where to roll out demand response programs, what level of demand will be available for each program, and more importantly, how these programs will impact network operations when all or some of the resources respond to the demand response event.
