Paying consumers to increase their consumption can reduce the cost of integrating wind and solar electricity production into the grid

Very interesting experiment. Finding ways around the intermittency issue of solar and wind.

Dynamic demand could easily manage intermittent energy sources. Refrigeration is a classic example of something that can be switched off for short periods during peak demand to help smooth out demand profiles.
