With the aim of creating increasingly sustainable electricity systems, countries have begun to develop demand response programs, which seek to respond to peaks in electricity demand or high energy prices, guaranteeing the reliability and stability of the network, as well as a more efficient use of energy resources, and Colombia is no exception.
The Voluntary Disconnectable Demand Program is a Demand Response Program whereby, through Enel X, the new Enel-Codensa business line, participating clients declare their energy surplus reduction or generation capacity, to make the energy available to the electrical grid when required.
There are situations in which the country's energy generators are not available to guarantee energy reliability, such as during the maintenance of a power plant, any delays during the construction of the same or deficient hydrological conditions. In the past we relied entirely on generator capacity, and therefore, programs regulated by the CREG, such as the VDD, are becoming increasingly important.
Voluntary Disconnectable Demand is an opportunity for companies to generate new revenue to support the country's energy generators and contribute to the sustainability of the National Interconnected System.

How does our Voluntary Disconnectable Demand service work?
To understand the Voluntary Disconnectable Demand, think of one of your company drivers. They receive a payment to assist with the trips of the company’s employees. Their service may not be used all the time or every day, but the driver will always be there to assist with a trip whenever required. Basically he or she is hired for their availability, and this would apply to your company. The Voluntary Disconnectable Demand is an opportunity for the companies to declare their available power and generate new revenues to support the National Interconnected System.
Enel X performs the role of commercial agent and represents companies in the wholesale market, so that they can sell their available power to the National Energy System.
