Navigant Publishes Residential DR Report

Navigant Publishes 'Market Data: Demand Response for C&I'

This Navigant Research report examines the global RDR market in five major geographic regions: North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa. The study provides an analysis of market issues, including the drivers and barriers associated with global RDR development. Global market forecasts for capacity, sites, spending, and revenue for CIDR, segmented by region, extend through 2028. The report also explores global RDR trends to highlight varying regional activity and markets.

Electric residential demand response (RDR) programs have been in place in North America for several decades but have only started to expand globally since 2013. RDR typically follows proven success of commercial and industrial demand response (CIDR) programs. Between 2019 and 2028, demonstrated CIDR reliability worldwide, combined with new use cases for electric RDR and new grid-connected technologies will increase program penetration in newer markets and drive deeper savings where markets are maturing.

While the residential sector will see increased demand response (DR) participation over the coming decade, the factors driving this growth will vary regionally. In more mature markets, new distributed energy resources (DER) technologies and advanced data analytics will drive deeper savings across RDR programs. Further, RDR programs may increasingly be called upon to regularly shift load away from peak hours rather than only curtail load during periods of grid instability. Regions without RDR in 2019 are expected to launch their first programs in the coming decade. They may approach RDR uniquely given different electricity grid and residential customer needs.
