Rapid development of distributed energy resources (DER) technologies and accompanying software along with evolving grid pain points are driving the growing need for flexible capacity in 2020. Legacy demand response (DR) programs are evolving from manual direct load control switch programs, beyond the more recent bring your own thermostat framework and toward that of bring your own device (BYOD). This new framework embraces a swath of behind-the-meter (BTM) DER technologies found across customer segments.
Simultaneously, flexible capacity from BTM and in front of the meter is being optimized to contribute to broader grid reliability and optimize participating devices to provide the same essential purposes as a traditional 24/7 power plant. Through this virtual power plant (VPP) strategy, passive energy consumers can be transformed into active prosumers, delivering services tailored to their needs and preferences and those of the larger grid.
This Guidehouse Insights report analyzes the global market for flexible capacity in two key segments: demand response (DR) and virtual power plants (VPPs). The study provides an analysis of the market issues associated with DR and VPPs. Regional overviews provide telling developments in the five global regions analyzed by Guidehouse Insights: North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. Global market forecasts for capacity, spending, and revenue are broken out by region. VPP forecasts are also broken out by VPP model type, including DR-based, supply-side, and mixed asset. All forecasts extend through 2029. The report also examines the key technologies differentiating VPPs from DR and other forms of flexible capacity.
