1. How to fund your energy strategy with DSR
Enable your business to upgrade: install new or refurbish infrastructure.
An increasing number of businesses have joined the Demand Side Response (DSR) scheme which provides financial incentives for business customers to lower or shift their electricity consumption at peak times. For business customers, DSR is a smart way to save on total energy costs and simultaneously reduce their carbon footprint. At the same time DSR helps firms to manage their load and voltage profiles on the electricity network.
All businesses, ranging from large industrial and commercial firms, small to medium enterprises or aggregators, can enrol in DSR as part of their energy strategy. To read more https://www.centricabusinesssolutions.com/
2. Unlock energy insights with Demand Side Response (DSR)
Unlock deeper insights into your energy usage to create cost savings and unlock new revenue streams.
In the past the power sector generated large amounts of electricity from big power stations for delivery to the national grid and customers. Today, major utilities like Centrica also supply gas and, instead of just a few major power stations providing power to the National Grid, there are a growing number of smaller power plants fuelled by gas, wind, solar and even batteries to generate power for the grid. As a result, the National Grid has had to become more flexible in managing supply and demand for power to customers.
Utilities have also responded to advances in technology and energy market reforms by providing a range of additional services to business customers. Crucially these are designed to help their clients to proactively manage and monitor their energy consumption. One approach is through Demand Side Response (DSR) management systems, which can eliminate energy wastage and conserve energy use, making the common sight of empty office buildings lighting the night sky a thing of the past.

3. Support energy sustainability with Demand Side Response (DSR)
dramatically. In the past electricity was generated by large generating plants fuelled by either nuclear, gas or coal which, due to their lack of flexibility, required wide margins of power to be readily available to cope with sudden spikes in demand. Today, coal power is virtually phased out and intermittent renewable wind and solar power is an increasing energy source so that there are no longer sufficient big margins of power available to cope with spikes in demand. The consequent reduced gap between capacity and demand is being alleviated by the introduction of Demand Side Response (DSR) which was developed to help maintain grid stability in the face of increasing intermittent renewable energy supplies and to reduce reliance on stand-by gas power plants which, though cleaner than coal nevertheless release CO2 into the atmosphere.

4. Why DSR should be part of your energy investment roadmap
Distributed energy is changing the way energy is sourced, generated, supplied and managed. It is also the case that increasing numbers of businesses customers have become small -scale solar power producers , so much so, that some 13 GW of solar power generating capacity is now directly connected to local distribution grids and by- passes the National Grid.
Demand Side Response (DSR) meets local power needs, enables organisations to find value in their flexible assets and provide support for a smarter grid. One leading expert in delivering the best DSR solutions for the business customer is Centrica Business Solutions (CBS). It has a proven track record in delivering DSR technologies to ensure the organisation can harness the competitive advantage this technology unlocks.
