Grid Balance®: Get Paid
Commercial, industrial and institutional organizations are tapping into new revenue by participating in new energy programs offered by electricity system operators and facilitated by ENBALA.
to Use Power
The Grid Balance® program aggregates a network of large-scale electricity users, and harnesses the flexibility in how they already use power to improve the power systems' efficiency and reliability.
Benefits to Large-Scale
- Earn new revenue
- No-cost installation
- Easy to get started
- Reduce greenhouse gases
- Complement demand-response & curtailment
To ensure that organizations have a reliable supply of electricity, grid operators must maintain a continuous balance between market demand and generation supply. This is known as Grid Balance®.
Intermittent renewable generation (such as wind and solar) adds an element of unpredictability to supplying electricity. Yet ramping up generation, transmission and distribution is costly, inefficient and damaging to the environment. Rather than expand the electric power system, it is time to apply innovative solutions to its management.
ENBALA's intelligent, robust and resilient technology identifies and captures large electricity users' flexible demand-side storage to respond to the real-time needs of the power system. Demand-side loads are paid for participation based on their inherent storage and flexibility to respond.
Loads connect to the ENBALA Network through a locally installed Communications Panel via their existing automation platform. This enables the ENBALA to recognize the real-time health and status of each network participant, and deliver an aggregated response to the electricity system operator.
Ultimately, ENBALA's innovative approach to electricity management increases efficiency, reduces energy costs, and lowers greenhouse gas emissions.
Smart solutions for an even smarter grid.
