As the cost of renewables comes down, and as intermittency begins to constrain the value provided by renewables, demand response – along with distributed energy – has a significant role to play in managing Australia’s energy loads.

Demand response is both a way for energy users to manage costs behind the meter, and an increasingly important tool for improving the affordability and stability of Australia’s electricity system. And as Australia’s energy market transforms, the ability of energy users to rapidly adjust their energy use to adapt to changes in the energy system is only becoming more valuable.

In this practical one-day masterclass, you’ll learn about the benefits demand response for businesses and the broader energy system, different value propositions and business models for demand response, how to leverage existing and emerging technologies to facilitate demand response, and rapidly evolving opportunities to create new revenue streams for businesses by selling demand response in energy markets.
