In restructured power systems, there are many independent players who benefit from demand response (DR). These include the transmission system operator (TSO), distributors, retailers, and aggregators. This paper proposes a new concept - demand response eXchange (DRX) - in which DR is treated as a public good to be exchanged between DR buyers and sellers. Buyers need DR to improve the reliability of their own electricity-dependent businesses and systems. Sellers have the capacity to significantly modify electricity demand on request. Microeconomic theory is applied to model the DRX in the form of a pool-based market. In this market, a DRX operator (DRXO) collects DR bids and offers from the buyers and sellers, respectively. In then clears the market by maximizing the total market benefit subject to certain constraints including: demand-supply balance, and assurance contracts related to individual buyer contributions for DR. The DRX model is also tested on a small power system, and its efficiency is reported.
