The introduction of large tranches of renewable intermittent generation onto power systems has highlighted the need for mechanisms to profile demand to smooth and better match the renewable generation output to prevailing demand. It is envisaged that a proportion of the intermittency could be managed by regulating the demand side at the grid, distribution or end-user level. This chapter reviews the potential applications that may create the returns to finance developments and encourage participation. There are schemes that operate at the supergrid level often administered by the system operator and others that operate at the distribution level that may be managed by the supply companies.
