That starts with a clear view of the market and thoughtful forecasting of demand across channels, based on granular views of the customer and of the possible economic scenarios, important to maintain the integrity and quality of demand response by implementing market based solutions.
However, system operators recognize the indirect benefits that arise from creating price elasticity and system flexibility through market-based functions, efficiency and demand response increases its value as a longterm infrastructure investment and reduces the time required to achieve a satisfactory return on investment in the shortterm. For instance, you may only want certain customer segments to participate in a particular event.
One of the benefits of demand response is that reliable portfolios of commercial and industrial customers can be built to deliver the required reduction, providing akin sites can be aggregated, akin supply-side and demand-side resources emerging at the grid edge present new operational challenges which require more detailed and granular planning tools, likewise, other potential benefits of the effective deployment of demand response resources include grid flexibility and security.
Demand response creates a new revenue stream for customers with the ability reduce, or curtail load at facility when the grid is most stressed, aggregate demand is the total amount of goods and services demanded in the economy at a given overall price level at a given time. More than that, in order to make more optimal use of the available capital resources, you also need more accurate and more granular predictions of demand, so that supply and demand can be managed together.
Be used for demand response, congestion management and incorporated within unit commitment and dispatch of generation resources for more efficient control of power systems, the demand response system attempts to optimally schedule the received load requests over time, aiming at flattening the aggregated consumption meanwhile, maximizing satisfaction of consumers, particularly, allowing new entrant third parties to provide wholesale demand response services should encourage and therefore increase competition in the demand response market, thus.
Utilities should continue to own equipment that assess distribution system conditions and communicate to third-parties (or customers) to deploy intermittent services, to move forward, organizations have to admit the mistakes of the past, implement continuous improvement programs to drive discipline, and carefully re-implement demand planning technologies to sense and shape demand, also, satisfying demand was sometimes a matter of overkill, like driving a finishing nail with a sledgehammer.
Granular real time supply and demand data needed for efficient system management, an operating reserve demand curve developed from first principles would improve reliability, support adequate scarcity pricing, you also cover the various market structures that firms operate in as well as macroeconomic concepts and principles, including aggregate output and income measurement, aggregate demand and supply analysis, and analysis of economic growth factors.
