This year’s event unpacks the changing flexibility landscape – and what that means for businesses that can harness flexible demand or behind-the-meter generation assets…
Taking place on 11 September at One Moorgate Place, London, the DSR Event is free for end user organisations that can harness onsite generation or load to help provide flexibility to National Grid ESO, distribution network operators, or to help suppliers balance their contracted positions.
What you will learn
National Grid ESO will outline the direction of travel as it works through service revisions in a bid to create a more dynamic and diverse flexibility landscape.
Consultants Baringa Partners and LCP, alongside sponsors EDF and Enel-X will discuss where value is headed for flexibility providers and how the fluid market environment impacts strategies.
The Environment Agency will outline how the Medium Combustion Plant Directive (MCPD) and Specified Generator legislation impacts DSR provision from onsite generation – and where emissions control may be headed.
The Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy will provide an update on the Capacity Mechanism – and the aspects DSR providers should bear in mind in the short to medium term.
Cornwall Insight will provide a topline view on incoming charging regime change and its potential implications for DSR.
UK Power Networks will lead on a session around local flexibility and the opportunities this presents to those with flexible assets and demand to add another revenue stream by helping to manage network constraints and other services, as DNOs transition to DSOs.
Elexon will outline the opportunity presented by European reserve exchange programme, Terre, while end-user demand-side response providers Aggregate Industries, Severn Trent Water and Simec will share their experiences of DSR provision – highlighting challenges and opportunities that other providers should bear in mind.
Free DSR report
The event will also mark the launch of The Energyst’s 2019 DSR report. It includes a reader survey containing data and qualitative interviews from both DSR providers and those that could, but do not yet provide DSR, plus views from aggregators, suppliers, DNOs and consultants. te
