Thumbnail 5 - Non-DispatchableIn parallel with the various forms of dispatchable Demand Response, there also exists a number of different methods through which the energy user might choose to activate Demand Response on their own, without being dispatched by a third party.

As shown in this diagram, these self-dispatch decisions are made in response to some form of time-sensitive pricing – which includes the following permutations:

1)  Time of use (TOU) charges;

2)  Critical peak pricing (CPP);

3)  Real-time pricing (RTP); and

the diagram also references System Peak Response Transmission Tariff (4CP Response), though our view is that non-dispatchable DR in relation to peak network loading could also be described under one of the three categories above.
