Short study on Demand Response Activation by Independent Aggregators As Proposed in the Draft Electricity Directive on behalf of EURELECTRIC
Demand Response is an effective way to provide flexibility to an energy system that is increasingly characterised by intermittent renewable energy feed. To incentivise efficient Demand Response development in Europe, the European Commission has introduced a general framework for aggregators in its proposed Directive. This includes independent aggregators that are not affiliated to a supplier or any other market participant.
On behalf of the Union of the Electricity Industry - EURELECTRIC, DNV GL has carried out an independent investigation of the EU Commission’s draft proposal for Demand Response activated by aggregators.
