Standing Council on Energy and Resources Demand Side Participation Work Program (updated December 2013)

Publication date: Friday, 13th December 2013.

In December 2013, the former Standing Council on Energy and Resources adopted the framework for its Demand Side Participation (DSP) Work Program. The framework provides an overview of the Council's policy objectives for DSP:

  • improving pricing and incentives: consumers need clear signals about the cost of their energy consumption in order to efficiently manage their demand, and supply chain businesses need appropriate incentives to implement and facilitate DSP options;
  • informing choice: consumers and demand side providers need a range of information so that they can identify and implement efficient demand options; and
  • enabling response: a range of technologies, skills, and supporting frameworks are required to support pricing, information, and demand management options, and to enable timely responses to market signals.
