Energy Users who participate in this category of Demand Response follow dispatch instructions from some third party in response to some form of pricing signal. That’s different than these other methods, where the price response is triggered (dispatched) internally.
Even within this “third party dispatch” category, the dispatch could come in the form of:
1) Dispatch of Consumption; or
2) Dispatch of “Negawatts”, with “What would have otherwise been Consumption” not dispatched – where dispatch might be by the AEMO or (as discussed on this page) by a Retailer.
As time permits, we will add in more commentary here about Negawatts, when dispatched by retailers.
