Residential Demand Side Response: An Aggregator’s Report on Local Flexibility
Project LEO partner equiwatt have authored a robust and informative report on the lessons learned from recruiting and trialing for flexibility across Oxfordshire.
“In producing this report, we have developed consumer insights based on the recruitment channels used, the recruitment outcomes, conducted a survey of equiwatt users in the Project LEO area, and conducted in-depth interviews.
We have analysed data from “equivents” (our flexibility events), assessing the extent of demand reduction during the equivents and considering any correlation between reduction and other factors, such as how users participate, different event types, and demographic factors. In addition to using data from the Project LEO area, we have also assessed data from equiwatt’s wider portfolio. Throughout the report the analysis of demand reduction or shifting is undertaken using data from smart meters.
This report brings together those insights, alongside key messages of the wider potential for flexibility in Oxfordshire and and wider.“
