Residential, commercial and industrial consumers increasingly generate and store electricity, monitor and control their energy use, and respond to grid conditions. Demand-side flexibility is a reality and is being implemented in many parts of the world. However, there is still a long way to unlock the full potential of this flexibility resource. This panel will discuss policies, innovative business model and technologies to reach the full potential of demand side flexibility while delivering greater convenience and better customer experience.
