Demand Flexibility Service: Live Events

Demand Flexibility Service: Live Events

Demand Flexibility Service

The Demand Flexibility Service (DFS) has been developed to allow the ESO to access additional flexibility when the national demand is at its highest – during peak winter days – which is not currently accessible to the ESO in real time. This new innovative service will allow consumers, as well as some industrial and commercial users (through suppliers/aggregators), to be incentivised for voluntarily flexing the time when they use their electricity.

This dataset will contain updates regarding the use of the live service (not test events), to view data on test events please visit the following dataset:
