Take control of your energy with PowerShift

PowerShift is our energy flexibility, optimisation and trading platform that helps you turn your business’ energy into a valuable asset.

The energy landscape is changing. There is a clear drive from governments, businesses and individuals to reduce energy consumption and lower our collective carbon footprint. Many options are emerging from the simple to the complex, to help businesses manage their energy better.

As you work to manage and reduce your overheads, and improve profitability, now you can look at energy in genuinely new ways to help you realise your goals. One of today’s greatest opportunities to save, make money and meet your low carbon targets comes from being flexible in how and when you consume energy, not simply by using less overall.The National Grid needs customers to flex demand, and for businesses to implement onsite generation and battery storage, to help balance the network and keep it stable.

It's a major change. We call it PowerShift from EDF Energy.

Monetising your existing and flexible energy in seven steps.

Here's how it works:

  1. Account review. We review your current energy usage.

  2. Assessment. We review your ability to flex with equipment capabilities, business processes and income requirements.

  3. Design. We design a service for you.

  4. Contract. Our contracts dovetail with your energy supply contract or power purchase agreement (PPA), so you don’t gain on one while losing on another.

  5. Installation. We may need to install equipment depending on your contract.

  6. Delivery. We may automatically control your equipment or we may send you messages to turn up or down.

  7. Payment. We can take flexibility payments off your supply bill (reducing your energy costs) or pay you separately.
