But what is demand response?
Demand response is a method of reducing electricity consumption at times of peak demand on the grid, allowing System Operators such as National Grid UK to avoid using outdated, expensive and polluting, "peaking" power stations.
Why is demand response needed?
By 2050 electricity demand is set to double as more transport, heating and devices are integrated onto existing energy grids.
In the UK alone, over £110bn of investment is required to build the equivalent of 20 large power stations and upgrade the grid to meet growing demand. The UK’s National Grid has committed to relying mostly on demand response to balance the grid by 2030.
KiWi Power is the only demand response aggregator to offer a full suite of grid balancing services. We use award-winning, proprietary technology to automate this process and make it cost effective and simple to activate.
This could include one or a combination of several programmes. All are designed to incentivise commercial sites to help balance the supply and demand of electricity on the grid.
All programmes generate revenues and cost savings, improve site resilience and enhance green credentials. We work with you to determine your involvement based on your site’s operational needs, the type of assets you have, how quickly they can respond and how long they can run. All without affecting operations or comfort on-site.
