Reducing Global Adjustment Charges While Earning Demand Response Dollars

For the last two decades, Ontario’s commercial, industrial and institutional leaders have relied on Enel X for its innovative solutions for saving—and earning—money on energy, mitigating Global Adjustment (GA) charges through no-cost, no-risk energy storage, and enabling demand response participation. Using our peak prediction technology, organizations enrolled in the Industrial Conservation Initiative (ICI) can reduce their Peak Demand Factor (PDF) and save more than $500,000 a year for every megawatt of peak consumption reduced.

And, like you, we’re always working to get better. Enel X has led the Ontario demand response market—the one that pays you for curtailing your consumption from the grid at times of peak demand—since 2008, driving $75M in payments back to businesses. On top of that, by incorporating intelligent energy storage solutions into your Global Adjustment mitigation strategy, businesses can address costly GA charges without disrupting facility operations—all at no cost to your organization.

From intelligent energy storage and demand response to energy supply and utility bill management, Enel X’s automated, data-driven solutions optimize the financial value of energy, helping you use energy more strategically to sustain the environment and your bottom line.
