The challenge

The increase in electricity generated from renewable sources – which by definition is difficult to schedule or predict with certainty – brings some critical issues, such as the complex balance between supply and demand and the risk of overloading power grids. In this context energy flexibility programs, such as Demand Response, offer numerous benefits to electricity grid operators and suppliers, and end customers.

The solution

The introduction of Demand Response programs makes it possible to improve the stability of the electricity grid, enabling end customers to reduce part of their consumption (consumers), feed self-generated energy into the grid (producers), or act both ways (prosumers).

Energy flexibility programs, and in particular Demand Response programs, are a great opportunity for companies that offer innovative energy services.

Sense Reply supports Energy & Utilities companies with the design and implementation of Demand Response programs.
