ENBALA Supply/Demand Optimization, Optimizing Generation Using Demand-Side Loads

ENBALA’s intelligent platform provides utilities with the capability to manage a network of demand-side loads and slightly adjust their power in real-time, as required by demand on the power system. ENBALA’s Supply/Demand Optimization application provides utilities with an alternate way to manage generator efficiency/ramp. As a result, this application enables generators to operate closer to their maximum efficiency, reducing operating costs.

ENBALA Oak Ridge National Laboratory Report: Examination of the Potential for Industrial Loads to Provide Ancillary Services

Valuable process storage that already exists within demand-side loads can be captured and aggregated to deliver flexibility to the power system. Through the Oak Ridge National Laboratory research project funded by the Department of Energy, ENBALA has quantified the potential for commercial and industrial loads to provide this flexibility, improving power system efficiency and reliability.

ENBALA Fuel Strategy for Our Energy-Hungry Planet

Energy is sold in many different units. This is the cause of confusion, as there is no easy means of comparing costs of energy use for various fuels. A detailed examination shows some surprising results - and opportunities to reduce costs - and GHG emissions.

ENBALA Just How Clean Is Your Electricity?

There is a common view that any additional electricity that is purchased from a utility comes from a marginal source that is claimed to be either coal or gas fired. This may - or may not be correct.

ENBALA Improving the Efficiency of the Electricity System

ENBALA's sophisticated platform aggregates the flexibility available in multiple disparate loads in the network to provide high quality, robust, reliable and resilient Ancillary Services (such as Regulation Service) to Independent System Operators ("ISOs").
