During the past few years demand response (DR) has appeared in the spotlight in a new way. This is due to general technological advancement, development of electricity infrastructure, especially roll-out of smart meters, and rapidly increasing amount of renewable intermittent energy sources. This paper analyzes the attractiveness of DR in the Nordic electricity market. The results show that in many market places the attractiveness of DR is improving in the long term, although variations between different years exist. Two case studies presented in the papers show that DR has economic potential for some of the customers, especially for medium to large actors, but in a large scope, number of obstacles still hinder a wide scale deployment of DR solutions.
