Getting your business Demand Side Response comfortable
For many businesses the biggest blocker to taking part in DSR is culture – not technology. Essentially, fear that changing electricity use will interrupt day to day business operations.
In practice there is normally plenty of energy saving potential in your assets and processes to make DSR doable, without disruption to your operations. It's just a case of working out how much flexibility there is and then proving it to stakeholders in your operations.
An effective way to approach this can be to run a pilot on one of your sites* to work out your benchmarks for different processes, for example refrigeration, heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) and other production processes or back-up generation. This will show you the level of energy demand change that is safe for your customer experience and product quality.
