BOULDER, Colo. — A new report from Navigant Research examines the global market for residential demand response (RDR) in five major regions, providing global market forecasts for capacity, sites, spending, and revenue for commercial and industrial (C&I) demand response, segmented by region, through 2028.

In place in North America for several decades, demand response programs began expanding globally after 2010, with most countries first implementing C&I programs. While the RDR market remains smaller than its C&I counterpart, utilities and grid operators recognize that aggregated electric RDR capacity can also provide a substantial amount of load reduction or shift to both the capacity and open ancillary service energy markets.

“The residential sector will see increased demand response participation over the coming decade, with the factors driving this growth varying regionally. In more mature markets, new distributed energy resources (DER) technologies and advanced data analytics will drive deeper savings across RDR programs, while regions without RDR in 2019 are expected to launch their first programs in the coming decade.” Says Jessie Mehrhoff, research analyst with Navigant Research.

Most of the growth in RDR capacity will come from North America, followed by Europe, according to the report. Asia Pacific is projected to see a rise in RDR throughout the forecast but grow relatively slowly. Meanwhile, the Middle East & Africa and Latin America are expected to launch their first RDR programs in 2020 and 2023, respectively.

The report, Market Data: Residential Demand Response, 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. An Executive Summary of the report is available for free download on the Navigant Research website.
