*Self-Dispatch* of Demand Response by an Energy User, based on different forms of Time-Sensitive Pricing

Thumbnail 8 - Time-Sensitive Pricing

Energy Users who participate in this category trigger their Demand Response themselves in response some form of time-sensitive pricing.

It’s labelled “Not Dispatchable” in the diagram from this NERC Report because it is not dispatched by a 3rd party, but instead by the Energy User themselves.  That’s different than these other”Dispatchable” methods, where the curtailment is triggered (dispatched) by a 3rd party – the AEMO, or some other party.

Both categories are Demand Response – they are just different types.


As shown in the diagram, there are different forms of Time-Sensitive Pricing that can be used to incentivise and trigger Demand Response by the Energy User.  Each of these are described on their own pages:

  1. Time-of-use (TOU)
  2. Critical Peak Pricing (CPP)
  3. Real-Time Pricing (RTP)
  4. System Peak Response Transmission Tariff (4CP Response)
