Learn more with our video

Demand response (DR) programs are designed to provide the flexible capacity the grid needs to balance the intermittency of renewables. Large energy users are paid for being flexible with when they use grid power.

Demand Response (DR) helps to balance power supply with power demand and keeps the lights on. It also puts downward pressure on energy pricing for the wider community, and provides organizations with a new and recurring revenue stream.
