Full Disclosure 4 – Demand Response


For more than a decade (since soon after the company was founded in 2000) we have been an active supporter of large energy users obtaining significant benefits from Demand Response in Australia’s National Electricity Market (NEM). GR_logo_transparent_background__with_tag_v2_3136x688

In the NEM we have been doing this for many years through the supply of our deSide product, plus through a range of other products and services (call us if you’d like to learn more of the specifics +61 7 3368 4064).

Our clients have achieved cost savings of seven figures on their average cost of energy.   As a general guide, savings of 20% of the average cost of energy in their electricity contracts are possible, as we noted back in 2009.

{Since the competitive electricity market opened in Ontario in 2002, we have also had large energy users use our ez2viewOntario software to facilitate their demand response services in that market}

As already noted, we strive to remain agnostic to the technology used in energy supply – and see demand response as one more “technology” that should be used in efficiently balancing supply and demand on a level playing field.
