What is Demand Response?

Demand Response allows commercial and industrial or institutional organisations to offer their capacity to support the electricity grid in exchange for regular payments. It helps to balance the intermittency of variable wind and solar power by providing instant, dispatchable capacity to the grid when called on. Businesses respond by powering down or switching to a backup power source to give their capacity back to the grid. They do this via our Virtual Power Plant (VPP) which has unmatched access to a range market programs.
