Demand-side flexibility is a suitable tool for decarbonisation in many sectors
Demand-side flexibility technology mapping by end-use sector
Competitiveness is based on how inexpensive the solution is in comparison with others for the same sector.
For example, the industrial sector has very few renewable options apart from green hydrogen, whereas direct electrification
with renewables is a cheaper alternative for the commercial and residential sectors. Therefore, the potential for gaining
demand-side flexibility from hydrogen production could be larger in industry.
