We report carbon emissions and savings (tonnesCO2) of the STOR programme based on data from a UK demand response aggregator company that utilises diesel generators, CHP and turn down methods. Short-Term Operating Reserve, STOR, is one of the Demand Side Response (DSR) programme that are being run by the National Grid in the UK. The purpose of STOR programme is to reduce the load on the energy system by means of various subsitution and reduction techniques. In particular, STOR allows its subscribed providers to generate substituting power. In the STOR programme we study carbon savings based on data obtained from a UK based response aggregator company. This company provides various types of intervention (using diesel generators, Combined-Heat and Power (CHP) and demand reduction (turn-down)) at times of peak demand. Whether such DSR produces carbon savings or not, depends on the used technologies, as well as the scale of the interventions.
