The Role of Demand Side Management (DSM) to Provide Flexibility in Electricity Systems   The share of intermittent renewables in the electricity system is rapidly growing all over the globe. In the EU they will represent 35% of electricity production by 2020 and are expected to reach 50% by 2030. But already today, at peak moments renewables make up for over 50% of production. This is a challenge for network operators, policy makers and regulators, but will also create business opportunities for old and new players.
