Demand-side response (DSR) is a key growth market in the UK which helps businesses become smarter and maximise additional revenue from existing infrastructure. DSR increases grid reliability by smoothing out supply from renewable energy suppliers connected to the grid.

If you are on a half-hourly or pass-through contract and your business has the ability to modify your electricity demand in response to market signals, then we can advise you on the best solutions to make the most of your electricity use. Through efficient balancing and spotting opportunities in your consumption patterns, your business can significantly reduce costs, reduce carbon emissions and generate additional revenue.
