Demand Response Programme Summary Report Released

06 May 2014

Transpower has released a summary report on the success of its 2013 Demand Response Programme, and outlining the next steps in its development. 

The programme was run between June and December 2013 involving eight participants and 134 MW of registered demand.   

Over the programme, there were 20 Demand Response events successfully called, with the largest DR call of 175 MW during testing for the HVDC Pole 3 project.

Through broader development of DR as a transmission alternative, we hope to build participation and demonstrate the value of DR participation with the goal of having private investment innovating and investing in DR technology and infrastructure within the next 3-5 years.

The summary report is available here.
