Demand Response (DR)

Transform your energy-consuming and generating assets from a recurring cost to a recurring revenue stream by participating in demand response programs with world-class demand side energy management tools and resources.

Demand response programs enable organizations to earn revenue from Independent System Operators (ISOs) and utilities across Europe by reducing or shifting their energy consumption to help balance the grid. Demand response services provided by demand response companies like Centrica Business Solutions can help your organization identify flexibility in your operations that can participate in DR, enabling you to maximize value from your energy infrastructure.

Get the most value out of the flexibility in the energy your organization uses, generates, and stores by leveraging our unrivaled technology for demand side energy management in combination with our deep market expertise. Combine DR with the power of real-time energy data for precise curtailment planning that maximizes revenue opportunity and minimizes risk of nonperformance. Participate in advanced DR markets with our automation tools, and use on-site Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) to support your curtailment without interruption to your operations.
