EFET, EURELECTRIC and Europex: Ensuring a level-playing field in the development of Demand Response. Reaction of EFET, EURELECTRIC and Europex to the Clean Energy Package

Brussels,16 May 2017 | Matching supply and demand at all times is a crucial element for efficient wholesale markets in the planning phase and in particular for real-time power system operation. As a consequence of the EU power mix transitioning away from fossil fuels towards more intermittent renewable energy sources, more flexibility is needed to manage the electricity system and operate the grid. Demand response (DR) can bring a major contribution to meet this challenge, and help build an efficient power system in line with the European energy policy, to the benefit of all consumers.
