Demand response plays a large role in enabling a more resilient and flexible grid. Supply and demand for
electricity must remain in balance – when demand goes up, utilities and grid operators have a few options
– risk a blackout, buy electricity in open markets, fire up a fossil fuel powered peaker plant, or
dispatch a demand response network.
When the grid anticipates the need for support, it dispatches a signal to demand response companies, like
Enel North America. Enel makes it easy to participate – watch our video to learn more.
