Global Market Study on Demand Response Systems: Growing Need for Efficient Energy Utilization Spurring Market Growth

Demand Response Systems Market Segmented By Smart Thermostats, Load Control Switches, Smart Meters, Smart Plugs Hardware Components with Design and Management Services, Technical Support, Installation Services and Energy Consulting Services


A demand response system is an energy solution, which enables the settlement of distributed and demand-side resources, and helps end users change the pattern of energy use in response to changes in electricity prices over time, or to provide incentive designed to induce lower electricity use at high market rates.

The demand response system market is driven by the need of end users to lower electricity costs (or associated price and volume risks). This goal can be achieved through a contract or tariff for saving the cost of retail electricity.

On the demand side, when the retail price is high, the customer can reduce electricity consumption, and increase consumption when the retail price is low, to reduce the overall cost of electricity.

Rising Adoption of Demand Response Systems to Manage Electricity Cost

If a company implements a demand response system to reduce electricity use when wholesale prices rise or the grid is overloaded, that company is eligible for monthly payments. Moreover, the utility organization may also ask these companies to reduce electricity usage to avoid crisis by offering these monthly payments.

Also, if a company shifts to a back-up generator to relieve stress on the grid during emergencies, it could receive similar payments, which is driving the growth of the demand response system market across the globe.
