Demand Response Association of Ireland (DRAI)
Demand Response Association of Ireland (DRAI) members are committed to shaping the future of the power system through advancing demand side flexibility on the island of Ireland. As Ireland strives to achieve up to 80% renewable generation by 2030, our promise as an industry-led organisation is to champion the development of innovative demand side solutions that are designed to address the system-wide requirement for flexibility.
The DRAI represents approximately 700 MW of demand and embedded generation response across hundreds of industrial and commercial customer sites throughout the island of Ireland. These sites are managed by our members each of whom actively participate in the capacity, DS3 system services, and energy markets.
The association was formed to give a single voice to companies operating in this space, in order to help facilitate market participation for demand, and provide perspectives on how to design market and system rules to allow greater volumes of active participation by flexible sources of demand.
