A review on demand response based ancillary services offered by industries

  • Ahmad Ghasemi Jundi-Shapur University of Technology


Industrial power consumers have a considerable share of the global power demand; as a result, effective solutions have to be adopted to optimize the industrial power consumption. Demand response Programs (DRPs) provide such solutions. These programs are growingly studied as the industrial power consumption has increased and the implementation costs of the new technologies have decreased in recent years. DRP implementation reduces the dependency on the expensive energy storage technologies and flexible backup power sources. It seems that, DRP is not widely used in industry, yet its benefits are not practically exploited. The present work reviews the implementation of DRPs in industry and introduces the opportunities of industries for offering ancillary services to the market. Then, the industries which highly suit the specific kind of industrial DRPs are introduced and their processes are analyzed from the DRP point of view. Next, the DRP projects are continentally categorized and the advancements of different countries in specific kind of industrial DRPs are noted. Finally, the discussions and conclusion are presented.
