National Grid, aggregators and suppliers join forces for Demand-Side Response Event 2016


Mission Critical Power publisher Energyst Media is launching a new conference focused on demand-side response and flexible power.

The DSR Event 2016 takes place in London on 8 September at the Banking Hall, in London’s Square Mile.

The aim of the conference is to bring more businesses into balancing services and all firms interested in learning how they can turn assets into revenue should attend.

Free to end-users, the conference is sponsored by National Grid, aggregators Open Energi and REstore and business energy suppliers Dong Energy and SmartestEnergy.

Businesses will gain insights into the latest market developments and how balancing services – and the entire power system – is changing.

Expert presentations and panel sessions will provide delegates with both latest information and the opportunity to ask questions about the UK’s shift to a more flexible power system – and the implications for business costs and revenue.

The Department of Energy & Climate Change will also outline changes to the capacity mechanism, and what they mean for businesses and aggregators.

Delegates will also receive a free copy of The Energyst’s new Demand-Side Response Report.

Free end-user places are limited to 100 seats, and will be allocated on a first come, first-served basis. There are also a limited number of tickets available to purchase for non-end user delegates.
