Facilities that use large amounts of electricity have often heard of demand response programs, or are active participants. Demand Response programs typically compensate facilities based on curtailment during a specified time period. The utility or market operator will call an event during times when the electrical grid is under a considerable amount of stress from high demand or lack of adequate generation. Ultimately, more generation is produced or curtailment is called to help prevent a rolling brownout or blackout. For many organizations, the idea of shutting off, curtailing, or adjusting energy use can be a scary thought! Whether you’re a building manager concerned about tenant comfort, a data center operations manager who is worried about uninterruptible power, or a plant engineer focused on product quality, you’ve got a business to run and your operations come first.
