An ideal power market should be two-sided, with both generation and demand participating to create an optimal dispatch. However developing a significant level of Demand Side Response (DSR), or flexible demand, has been a problem in almost all the markets in the world, and it is especially a problem in the Russian power market, which is practically one-sided. The aim of the workshop will be to review experiences with DSR in different countries, mainly USA, UK and Europe, and to discuss possible ways of introducing DSR in Russia. International experts have been invited to share their experiences and suggest a way forward.
P R O G R A M
October 02 (Thursday) FIRST DAY
Can DSR help the power market?
The first day will be devoted to DSR helping power markets to reach optimal equilibrium. The main focus will be on reducing the demand peaks to alleviate generation capacity problems. Also the role of aggregators in combining small and medium-size generators will be discussed.

October 03 (Friday) SECOND DAY
Can DSR help with running the power system?
The second day would be devoted to DSR helping more on the engineering side, i.e. management systems, emergency control, network congestion, voltage control, deferment of investment and frequency control.
