    Smart grid pilot projects have been initiated in a number of locations across the UK. Innovations considered in these projects include various technologies such as smart meters and electrical energy storage devices, as well as novel institutional arrangements which form the basis of commercial Demand Side Response (DSR) initiatives. This paper reports research into DSR using multiple case studies from Low Carbon Network Fund projects in the UK. The role of Aggregator companies in DSR is reported, their role of a key intermediary analysed and conceptualised using the Accessibility, Mobility and Receptivity (AMR) framework.
