To ensure a smooth process when curtailing energy, Enel helped AGP – North America craft a plan to minimize disruption.
AGP – North America’s focus in curtailing electricity is the gas and electricity consumed by the glass furnaces. In many production facilities, AGP – North America is able to achieve electrical curtailment by using natural gas or on-site liquid oxygen reserves. As more AGP – North America facilities join Enel, the process becomes simpler.
“There are now eight AGP – North America sites participating, and each site shares its shutdown plans with the others,” said Moser. “So, every time we add another facility, it gets easier. We also track demand response performance across all sites, so it becomes a bit of a competition to see who can perform best during the events.”
