Enel, the largest demand response aggregator in the Japanese market
Enel has been awarded 165 MW of resources for demand response in Japan. Thanks to the US company EnerNOC, the Group has won a contract tendered by four Japanese utilities with the aim of balancing energy reserves. This result confirms our Group’s position as the largest independent demand response aggregator in the land of the rising sun.
This tender will increase the capacity of Enel’s virtual power plant in the Japanese market by almost three times, reaching approximately 165 MW from the current 60 MW, thereby obtaining a 17% share of the market.
The assignment of the new capacity to Enel X means that the Enel Group’s new innovative energy services company will manage demand response for the large industrial and commercial customers connected to the utility grids, informing them when power reductions are necessary and creating a reserve that will contributeto consolidating the electricity grid’s stability.
This contract further confirms our expansion in the demand response market following the recent success at the first auction in Ireland that underlined our position as a leading provider of advanced energy management solutions. We are eager to use our experience and expertise in Japan’s increasingly competitive energy market, offering solutions that support a stable energy supply in the country
