Flexibility is Power
Japan’s energy system is changing due to renewable power and the ongoing electricity market reforms, creating significant opportunities for businesses to change how they power their operations. Businesses that invest in power flexibility – the ability to intelligently adjust when they use electricity from the grid – are driving down their energy costs, reducing price risk, and facilitating their transition to renewable power.
Introducing Enel X
Backed by Enel, one of the world's 100 largest companies, we were established to be a factory for innovative energy-related services. While our name may be new to some, we are leading the transformation of the energy sector around the world. In Japan, our mission is to help businesses harness power flexibility to transform how they power their operations. We are the global market leader in this space, managing a 24/7 “virtual power plant” across five continents, equal in size to six nuclear power plants. We have been in Japan since 2012, and we are the leading independent company in power flexibility. We work with over 120 Japanese businesses today, and we estimate that we will provide ~20% of the total power flexibility for Japan’s emerging balancing reserves in 2019. Driven by electricity market reforms, the opportunities for innovative businesses to earn money from power flexibility will grow tenfold over the next five years. We believe we are the only company with the expertise, the technology platform and the financial strength necessary to help businesses capture maximum value from these growing opportunities.
