IEA launches a survey on the application of Demand Response among DH utilities

Take part in the IEA EBC Annex 84 survey on "Demand Side Management status in District Heating/Cooling systems"!

The well-known and applied concept of demand side management (DSM) in the electricity system is one of the solutions that adapted to the demand side can foster the decarbonisation process and future operation of the DHC systems. The development of DHC systems actively applying the DSM requires the involvement of decision-makers and stakeholders. Therefore, the stakeholder’s perception and opinion on DSM is asked during this survey.

In this survey, DSM is understood as the modification of user demand in order to meet some requirements or reach specific goals in the DHC system. Demand Side Management and Demand Response are understood as similar concepts.

This questionnaire is anonymous, and your answers will only be used for research purposes. The deadline to fill it in is 30 June 2023.
