Task 15 - Devices for Demand Flexibility

The objective of this task is to develop a roadmap which lays out the necessary steps required to arrive at the ultimate goal of having the majority of consumer devices participating in advanced demand response initiatives.

Consumer devices have an important role to play in advanced demand response: the matching of loads to suit (renewable) energy generation patterns and other electricity system requirements.

The roadmap will include market, policy, technical and other steps required to meet the ultimate goal of having consumer devices fully participate in advanced demand response initiatives.

A report is expected in mid 2020.
