Reduce costs and earn revenue
The largest energy transmission and distribution charges are based on consumption levels at peak times. However, by participating in DSR, you can import less during peak periods, significantly reducing these charges.
When you reduce the level of power you are importing, you can sell back the volume you have already purchased – but are not using – at peak market prices. This can provide a valuable source of income throughout the year.
Depending on the nature of your operation and generation assets, it is possible to participate in appropriate National Grid balancing schemes, which pay you to help maintain the frequency of the National Grid. These range from Short-Term Operating Reserve (STOR) to Firm Frequency Response (FFR) services.
Ease the pressure on your margins by reducing your energy costs and grow your competitive advantage in the process.
Security of supply
By running your on-site generation assets more regularly, you can be confident they will be well maintained and fully functioning - and therefore better able to respond when you need them most.
Future-proof your energy spend against prospective cost increases through maximising your flexibility and generation.
Future-proof your spend against the unavoidable cost impact of the energy system’s transition from fossil fuels to renewable forms of generation.
Help the UK reduce dependence on fossil fuels by facilitating flexibility to support growth in wind and solar generation.
