‘Tis the Season to Embrace Demand Flexibility!

16 November 2023


In the previous year, Great Britain witnessed the introduction of its inaugural domestic demand flexibility service – earns you rewards for shifting electricity usage outside of peak demand hours, allowing the Electricity System Operator (ESO) to manage supply during tight-margin periods. This initiative empowered both consumers and businesses to contribute to grid stability, fostering increased renewable energy generation and safeguarding against potential strain.

Little less than a year ago, thousands of miles away, in California, a real-world scenario unfolded on December 6th, 2022. The region narrowly averted a blackout, thanks in part to the swift activation of 2400MW of demand savings within minutes by participants in their demand flexibility service—triggered by a simple text message!

Today, 16th November 2023, marks the inaugural test event of the winter season, allowing consumers to be compensated for temporarily refraining from power usage between 5 pm and 6:30 pm. Fear not, for it is merely a trial run. Nonetheless, such advancements would be inconceivable without the widespread deployment of smart meters nationwide.

This is where Flui’s software plays a crucial role – it facilitates the seamless connection between customer smart meters and providers. Without it, discerning who contributed what and how to reward their efforts would remain an insurmountable challenge.

Wishing you a jubilant Demand Flexibility Service Day!
