Energy flexibility should be the pillar of any successful energy strategy. As grid operators and utilities come to value it more and more, energy flexibility becomes a lucrative way for organizations to earn new revenue and reduce their energy bills if deployed strategically. Not only that, leveraging flexibility doesn’t have to be difficult or disruptive to your operations.
Perhaps your organization is interested in the earnings available through flexible energy use, but up until now you have hesitated to move forward with these projects. Many organizations may initially think these payments can only come with major disruptions to operations. And since those operations make up their core, day-to-day business and the source of their revenue, there is no reason to endanger that revenue with interruptions.
But because energy flexibility comes in different forms, you can tailor a unique plan that works with your specific energy strategy and energy infrastructure. There are many ways to leverage flexibility to unlock revenue generation opportunities or realize energy cost savings – and you can accomplish this with minimal disruption to your operations.
Use our infographic below to explore strategies to unlock energy flexibility, and then read on for a more detailed dive into these strategies. You can also download a PDF copy for you to easily have on-hand as you develop your energy flexibility strategy.
Different flexibility solutions require different levels of commitment and complexity. Beginning with an introductory project – for instance, participating in a demand response program with more advanced notice, or implementing energy efficiency upgrades – can not only ensure minimal disruption, but it can demonstrate the ROI in continuing to pursue these options.
One of our demand response customers noted that their first demand response site served, in many ways, as proof of concept – company leadership initially hesitated to enroll multiple facilities in demand response. But after the first several payments for their original site, they asked, “What other facilities can we sign up?”
These are just a few of the many possible strategies that allow you to unlock flexibility in your organization’s energy infrastructure. There are countless paths to finding and using flexibility to optimize your energy strategy, earn new revenue, and reduce energy spend.
