1) Saves money for electricity consumers
by shifting usage to times of low cost.
2) Reduces Ireland's carbon footprint.
3) Delivers an essential service required
for Ireland to achieve its renewable
The experience of Energy Consultants located throughout Ireland coupled with the technology of Synergy Module can achieve spectacular results.
1 Using Synergy Module and Demand Response to save Mon€y
1a) Synergy Module will tell you the wholesale cost for your electricity consumption. By subtracting this from your electricity bill you can find out how much profit your existing supplier is making on your account. Bottom line, you may be able to negotiate a better rate.
1b) Compare the relative price of the load profile of your electricity consumption from different suppliers including from real time price (RTP) suppliers.
1c) Move electricity usage to lower cost times and renegotiate with your supplier or move to an RTP supplier.
1d) As more customers implement demand response, the average price of electricity decreases for all users as spikes are reduced and the need for low utilisation peaking plant is reduced.
Using Synergy Module and Demand Response to reduce Carbon footprint
2a) Base load generation plant is much more efficient than peaking plant. Avoiding the need for peaking plant reduces carbon production.
2b) Times of low cost electricity coincide with renewable energy generation. Moving load to times of low cost, from high cost, increases the percentage of renewable energy you are consuming.
2c) The built-in demand side frequency response and real time pricing reduce the need for spinning reserve on the grid.
Using Synergy Module and Demand Response to facilitate Renewable Energy Penetration
3a) Consuming electricity at times of low cost prevents the curtailment of renewable generation at times of excess production.
