Different methods of Demand Response

In this 2011 report of the North American Electricity Reliability Corporation (NERC) they provided a very useful framework for understanding different categories of demand response – figure 1 on page 9.

Because of its usefulness, we’ve translated this diagram into an indexing method – please click on a box below and we’ll direct you to a page that provides more information about each category of demand response, but in the context of the Australian National Electricity Market (NEM).
