Exploring Demand Side Response

The introduction of renewable energy and electric vehicles (EVs) has changed the energy landscape. Our existing grid infrastructure is under increasing strain, and as a result, we need look into smarter ways to manage how energy is used.

The Flexibly Responsive Energy Demand (FRED) project‘s goal is to do just that – it explores Demand Side Response (DSR) and its place in a future, low carbon energy system. Hear from our project partners; Evergreen Smart PowerGengamemyenergi, the Energy Systems Catapult as they reveal some methods and findings via this webinar.
