All questions in this survey refer to electrical demand response (DR) on electricity distribution grid level. DR here refers to management of controllable ELECTRICAL loads (and generation) of consumers: Load shifting/ adaption (e.g. in households, commercial buildings).

1. How would you rate the IMPORTANCE of demand response (DR) in efficient Smart Grid development?
2. How would you rate the PRIORITY of DR among other Smart Grid elements, like electric vehicles, energy storage, etc.?
3. How would you rate the importance of the following DR functions for local electricity grid support?
