For a long time, industrial companies have represented a highly variable and difficult to manage set of customers for utilities. Industrial plants and facilities can have big shifts in loads, and, as a result, utilities always must keep capacity readily available. That’s why this business relationship and pricing model traditionally has involved relatively low costs on a per-kilowatt-hour basis, plus additional "capacity charges."

The connections between the industrial sector and the utility industry will become increasingly complex and even more variable.

Charts/Graphs-Demand Response Powerit smallThe resounding message of the Peak Load Management Alliance fall conference in Philadelphia earlier this month was that demand response (DR) is a more valuable resource than ever—and the market structure may change significantly, making opportunities for industrial users a moving target.

Blog Images-2540As part of our mission to make optimal energy use effortless and universal, Powerit Solutions has published the Electrical Demand Automation System Software specification. The new tool gives building contractors, engineering firms, energy services companies, and others a standardized way to specify, evaluate, and develop demand management systems.

Introduced Nov. 19 at Automation Fair 2014, the specification draws on Powerit’s shop-floor experience as an automated demand management pioneer, distilling lessons learned at industrial facilities in the U.S. and around the world.

Charts/Graphs-Demand Response Powerit smallThe recent Demand Response World Forum in Orange County, Calif., provided a snapshot of global activity, from hydro-based frequency regulation in Sweden and direct load control of hot-water heaters in France to Schneider Electric’s virtual power plants and a bid to use capacity stored in electric vehicles as a demand response (DR) resource in California. What tied it all together? Chris Villarreal, a senior regulatory analyst at the California Public Utilities Commission, captured the event’s overarching theme when he said the best way to get DR to scale is to enable customers to respond to price.
