Description of the contract

The Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) wishes to appoint a supplier for the ‘D3 Technical Analysis Project’ to: Examine how demand side energy measures are taken into account in the Department’s energy models (including demand reduction, demand response, and distributed energy); set out any opportunities to enhance these models’ analysis of demand side energy solutions; and in particular; examine whether these models can take into account the potential costs and benefits associated with an integrated use of demand side activities (the ‘D3’ approach), the scope for D3 to create additional energy-saving and carbon emissions reduction benefits, and the potential financial implications of D3 in the UK energy market. The overall aim of this study is to determine if there are opportunities to enhance the Department’s whole system modelling of demand side solutions and of the D3 approach in particular. For this contract, we required the contractor to provide two outputs: a. A report on the Department’s whole system energy models and its treatment of the demand side including D3 b. Delivery of a workshop and workshop report with DECC demand side policy and modelling teams to set out future D3 scenarios
