DFS expected to provide at least three times as much capacity

The Electricity System Operator (ESO) is confident that take-up of this winter’s Demand Flexibility Service (DFS) will be at least three times the size of last winter's scheme. Under a “fairly moderate” scenario, the ESO expects around 1GW of capacity to be made available through the DFS. In a more optimistic outlook, the ESO thinks up to 2GW could be made available. The projections are made within the ESO's Winter Outlook which also reveals an increase in the de-rated margin for the first time in four years.
