Demand Response refers to a mechanism where a business voluntarily reduces electricity consumption in exchange for a financial benefit.
More energy available on the grid and your business can be compensated for your actions.
Typically activated when the grid is over capacity, Demand Response allows you to scale back your electricity use when you choose; without interrupting your operations.
The increased adoption of renewable energy is resulting in energy generation volatility, requiring a smarter way to balance supply and demand.
The evolution of energy storage technology, internet of things (IOT) and connected asset platforms are unlocking new ways to dynamically control assets.
Energy market regulators are actively supporting demand flexibility programs, with policy and new rules allowing for flexibility to earn revenue to support grid stability.

How does Demand Response work?
When a high energy demand event occurs, typically during summer months, placing pressure on energy pricing, we deploy the flexible load of our customers to reduce the demand on the grid.
What is a flexible load?
Flexible load is anything you can reliably turn on or off in response to a market signal. This can include backup assets such as batteries and generators, flexible assets; fans, pumps, heating and cooling and flexible operations such as scheduled offline maintenance and adjusting electric vehicle charges.
