The energy landscape is fundamentally changing. As more renewable energy sources come online, our power infrastructure needs more ‘flexibility’. For the electricity grid operators in the UK and Eire, this means they need to find new ways to balance energy demands. Demand side response is the answer.

The National Grid in the UK and EirGrid in Ireland have a long-term vision for a smarter and more flexible energy infrastructure. Endeco Technologies provide the answer. Endeco Technologies work in partnership with the grid operators to deliver a unique technology-led solution that enables widespread participation in demand side response schemes.

Virtual Power Plant

This vision is delivered by Endeco Technologies’ ‘Virtual Power Plant’, which enables customers to join together to balance the electricity grid and reap lucrative financial rewards in return. This not only contributes to a more sustainable energy system, it presents new opportunities for energy intensive companies to participate in the grid balancing schemes.

Unlocking Powerful, Long-term Revenues

These schemes, operated by the National Grid and EirGrid offer multi-layered benefits for participating companies. For grid operators, adding stability to the system reduces the need for coal and gas fired reserves to be ready to supply power at short notice.

For the end-user, Endeco Technologies unlock powerful, long-term, recurring revenue streams from these mechanisms to provide a generous income from the Grid; the ability to avoid price peaks; plus the cost-benefits of load flexibility when renewable sources are available.

No Risks and No Impact

Endeco Technologies’ unique technology platform connects energy intensive assets and automatically adjusts power consumption in real-time to balance the Grid. All of this is achieved without risk or impact on customer operations.

What’s more the technology is designed to deliver a seamless transition between new revenue schemes launched by the grid operators.

Trusted and Proven

Endeco Technologies have successfully deployed their award-winning technology at over 200 sites in the UK and Ireland. Customers, who include many companies in the food sector such as the Brady Family in Ireland and Brakes Group in UK, can testify to the benefits of participation. These schemes can help to boost competitiveness, improve sustainability and make a significant contribution to the bottom line.
