The electricity grid must maintain a continuous balance between supply and demand. During fluctuations or stresses on the grid, energy assets can restore the balance on the electricity system by temporarily reducing or increasing energy consumption. Sympower connects energy assets to the electricity system, providing an alternative source of revenue for the appliance owners. Additionally, resolving the imbalances from the consumption, or demand side, provides a more sustainable alternative to balancing services currently provided by polluting fossil fuel plants.
Cooling systems can account for a large percentage of an electricity bill. With Sympower, you can reduce your electricity expenses, without affecting your business operations. Contribute to a more efficient energy system by connecting your cooling system and generate extra revenue doing so.
Large heating devices, ovens, boilers and other heat-generating systems can provide flexibility to the energy system. Temporarily reducing energy consumption while heating doesn't affect production. Joining the platform will continuously generate additional revenue, while business remains as usual.
Certain types of ventilation systems are exceptionally suited to participation in balancing of the energy grid. By temporarily turning down the ventilation power, you can boost your bottom line without noticing any interference to your business operations.
Lighting systems, especially those that generate heat, are an excellent asset that can produce extra revenue for your business. Shut downs are short enough that, for example, growing cycles aren’t affected.
Moving bodies of water can be used as an energy reserve, both to restore energy or consume it, depending on the grid needs. Water treatment plants, water cooling systems and waste water systems can be connected to facilitate the energy transition.
The first step is getting to know you and your business, and determining how your systems can participate in the grid balancing services. We will explain the system, the benefits and what it will mean for your business.
We'll create a custom rewards offer based on the size and nature of your appliances and devices, and on the needs of your business. There are no up front costs for the installation of our system.
After reviewing the contract and discussing the limits or restrictions you wish to set on our system, we will proceed with planning and executing the installation. A certified electrician will install and test the system and you'll be good to go.
You are now set to participate in paid demand response services and contribute to a cleaner and more sustainable energy system. The system will be running in the background, without affecting your day to day business activities.
