As the net-zero transition accelerates, the intermittency of wind and solar generation creates significant challenges for balancing supply and demand on the grid. Mark Hamilton explains how domestic and commercial consumers will play an increasingly valuable role in grid balancing by participating in grid balancing service delivery, with significant rewards for consumers who get involved. SMS’s FlexiGrid platform monitors and controls distributed Energy Smart Appliances to operate as a Virtual Power Plant, delivering clean balancing services to the grid. SMS were the leading aggregator in NG ESO’s Demand Flexibility Service last winter. Mark explains how SMS can support EV charger, battery and electric heating product manufacturers to bring their end-customers into the DFS service, unlocking new revenue streams for your customers by automating flexibility delivery.
