As we transition to a distributed energy system, the volatility of the grid is increasing. By supporting the national grid operator with flexibility from your generation or power consuming assets, your business can access financial incentives and create new value.

Demand Side Response (DSR) is powered by our in-house, industry-leading, cloud-based aggregation solution that acts as an alternative to a large physical power station. We manage an aggregate portfolio of flexible load, which allows us to offer more secure revenues and shield your flexibility from penalties. You can view and manage your DSR through PowerRadarTM, our integrated solution platform online or via the mobile app at any time.
