Managing Flexibility

It is vital we understand these standards as they will play a crucial role in the future flexibility of the energy market by facilitating the safe and interoperable production and use of ESAs – an important step in enabling consumers to manage electricity demand in the grid.

While PAS 1878 provides a technical specification that allows domestic appliances to operate in a Demand-Side Response (DSR) system, it is intended to be read in conjunction with PAS 1879, which provides recommendations for the provision of DSR services by service providers.

Demand-Side Response

By being on a time-of-use tariff and using appliances when demand for electricity is low, or when excess generation capacity is available, consumers with an ESA can reduce their electricity costs and carbon emissions. They can also earn revenue from other grid-side actors by allowing direct control of their ESAs.
