Demand Response

Take control of your energy, create additional value for your business and unlock the power of energy flexibility.

At Centrica Business Solutions, we understand the role energy flexibility can play to unlock new value, reduce costs and power business performance. Our Demand Response (DR) solution provides advanced Energy Insight capabilities, using device-level sensor technology and analytics to gain a deeper understanding of your energy estate, enabling better planning and expand your opportunity to monetize flexibility.

Unlock more DR value for your business

As we transition to a more distributed energy system, the volatility of the grid is increasing. Organizations that make flexibility a part of their energy strategy have the most to gain.

By supporting the grid to better manage instability, your business can access incentives from Independent System Operators (ISOs) and utilities across North America. And with the greater insight and control over your energy portfolio that DR enables, you can better manage your energy spend.

Demand Response from Centrica Business Solutions allows you to confidently and securely capture the opportunity of flexible energy. Our industry expertise, Internet of Things (IoT) sensor-technology and broad market access enables your business to potentially monetize flexibility worth on average $100k per MW per year.

Deeper insight leads to greater value

The need for ensuring resilience of the grid has led many ISOs towards incentivizing businesses to be flexible with their energy; making additional power available, or reducing consumption, during times of grid-stress. 

This flexibility is enabled by Demand Response.

Demand Response is already supporting energy flexibility in the grid, with 75% of US businesses surveyed seeing value in flexible energy use.1 But for organizations investigating how to monetize their energy estate, the two important questions are how do you identify available flexibility in your operations and how to you deliver it at the right time to maximize your opportunities, while not negatively impacting your business?
