Flexible energy management

Earn additional revenue with your company's electrical equipment

Earn up to 15% income without additional investment

Enefit's flexible energy management service enables you to earn income by changing the load of your equipment consuming or generating electricity.

The load schedule of equipment consuming and generating electricity can be shifted over time without disturbing their main processes. This is called the flexibility of the device's energy consumption or generation.

Flexible energy management enables to use more renewable energy in the electricity system and to reduce the environmental footprint of industrial enterprises. Flexibility allows the owner of the device to earn extra income by participating in maintaining the balance of the power system.

For example, you can change the temperature of a cold store by one degree for a short period, pump water at a pump station 30 minutes later, or change the heating schedule of an electric heater.

Depending on the device, the earned income is up to 15% of the annual cost or income of electricity consumption or generation of the device.

The costs of joining the service are borne by Enefit and your company does not have to make additional investments.

How does the flexible energy management service work?

For smart and automated control of your company's equipment and making money in the energy market, we connect it to our Virtual Power Plant (VPP) that actively participates in the energy market, looking for the best ways to create value for your company.

  • The device is connected to Enefit's VPP platform that has ISO 27001 information security certificate **via a secure data communication channel**
  • The device sends information about its operating mode and readiness to the **VPP platform and receives activation signals from the platform to change and restore the load**.
  • The Virtual Power Plant makes the optimal choice of which connected devices and for how long the load change order is sent
  • **Option, not obligation:** To change the default presets, you can specify whether or not the device is available for the VPP for each day and hour.
