Maximizing the value of responsive load
With increased renewable generation, the focus is moving from the quantity of generating capacity to its quality, or more specifically its flexibility. Current efforts to implement demand response provide a capacity resource that compares poorly to a combustion turbine and provides limited flexibility. This paradigm should shift to using highly responsive load to integrate renewable and distributed generation. © 2012 Elsevier Inc.
