Endeco assures energy intensive businesses that Triads don’t need to be try hard
Endeco Technologies, the award winning demand side response aggregator and leading technology experts, promises businesses with high energy consumption that Triads no longer need to be try hard with their high-end automation system.
In the midst of Triad season, and managing Triad avoidance effectively is crucial. Many intensive energy consumers opt to manually participate by themselves, without the intelligent technology to optimise participation. This often leads to missed opportunities to reduce demand and save on transmission charges. Endeco Technologies believes that automation is essential to effectively participating in Triads and avoiding human error.
Michael Phelan, CEO at Endeco Technologies, commented: “The main advantage of Endeco’s automation is that businesses need not alter energy use for longer than necessary. Many other providers simply use the National Grid demand data available to predict these, which often results in demand turn down for up for 4 hours.” He continued, “In order to minimise the disruption, we have developed a highly accurate way of predicting Triads, not just based on National Grid predicted demand, but previous year’s data, threshold patterns, weather and temperature. This means that the maximum time expected to turn down is 1.5 hours, a 62% decrease.”
As part of Endeco’s new portal launch, clients can now access the state-of-the-art Triad predictor, providing unique insights into energy consumption throughout Triad season, thresholds, tiered warnings, post-season Triad analytics, automation information and override, and more.
Triads quick facts:
- Triads are the half hour slots that have the highest demand on the electricity grid
- Triads occur during the Winter months between November and February due to the increased need for light and heat.
- These half-hourly periods normally occur between 4pm and 6pm on weekdays.
- There must be at least ten days between individual Triads.
Why avoid Triads?
Triads exist in order to calculate the Transmission Network Use of System (TNUoS) costs. These charges are incurred by large electricity consumers. Transmission costs as a whole can be reduced if demand is decreased when a Triad warning is issued.
