Introducing our 6 Service Areas
Our mission is to champion transparency in the electricity sector (it doesn’t need to be so confusing and unclear!) to deliver more value to UK businesses who want to be smarter with their electricity use.
We help businesses understand and optimise the opportunities available to them to save or make money from the six cornerstones of a smart strategy.
Demand Response is the mechanism used to balance demand and supply imbalances on on electricity grids.
Demand Response can be used to rebalance reductions in supply or increases in consumption and is widely adopted by transmission and distribution grid operators around the world as an alternative to running power stations to do the same thing. It can often be a faster, less expensive and more environmentally friendly alternative to peaking powerplants.
The UK has a wide range of Demand Response mechanisms both at a national and regional level.
Customers participating in Demand Response can be paid to reduce reliance on the grid through load shedding or ramping up onsite generation.
Frequency Response is the mechanism used to rebalance fluctuations in grid frequency.
Similar to Demand Response, grid frequency is imbalanced by reductions or unexpected changes in supply or increases in consumption.
Grid frequency in the UK needs to remain as close to 50Hz as possible and Frequency Response is used to rebalance the frequency if it increases or decreases.
Customers participating in Frequency Response can be paid to increase and decrease load.
Energy Intelligence covers two core areas; metering and measurement to establish how electricity is being used and implementation and reporting to deliver improvements to electricity us.
Electricity Smart helps businesses understand and implement best in class tools to measure, monitor and improve use of electricity.
Welcome to the future.
Battery storage is one of the most exciting technologies to join the journey to a lower carbon economy. Although in it’s infancy, battery storage is set to play a major role in the UK’s energy mix for the future. Battery storage options range from in-front of the meter (IFoM) solutions currently being utilised by generators, utilities and solar farms, to behind-the-meter (BtM) solutions which are offering value behind the meter in the commercial and industrial setting.
Electricity Smart helps businesses evaluate the battery storage opportunity, to build a business case for it’s installation and if suitable, helps businesses navigate the range of solutions in the market.
Ensure reliability, reduce cost
Although the concept of onsite generation is not new to the market, the value that onsite generation can deliver to businesses is increasing in value and popularity. A growing number of businesses wanting to reduce cost and ensure security of supply in a greener way are investing in onsite generation to tap into the potential of producing clean, reliable and reduced cost electricity onsite.
Electricity Smart helps businesses evaluate the value onsite generation can deliver and provides guidance on the range of technologies and funding available in the market to install this technology.
Welcome to tomorrow.
An electric vehicle charging station, which can also be called a charge point, an EV charger or an EV charging station is the technology that supplies electricity to recharge electric or hybrid vehicles. Electric vehicle charging stations come in three basic formats; home chargers, workplace chargers (AC) and fast chargers (DC), all which support charging at different voltages and currents.
Electricity Smart provides education around the range of charging solutions and helps businesses to evaluate the best solution for their need.
