About the Service
Our ultimate focus for providing and delivering the Service is to assess the potential for reducing domestic electricity demand on the distribution network during periods of constraint on the national grid. We are conducting this trial of the Service to understand the technical aspects of the Service including your customer experience.
As we transition to a low carbon economy the stress on the electricity distribution network from loads including electric vehicle charging will increase.
The Service is intended to assist the distribution network by regulating electricity flow across the grid to ease periods of stress. At times of stress, the network operator may request assistance from us to reduce the overall capacity to the network. Where necessary we may vary the rate of charge for non-essential processes at time of peak demand helping the grid to balance supply and demand without the need for additional generation (e.g power stations) to be used. This is known as a Demand Side Response (DSR).
Our Service to the network will endeavour to instruct responses to all DSR events with the minimal disruption to you. This includes but is not limited to reading myenergi device information on electric vehicle charging, charging schedules and to regulate charging schedules by amending, stopping, starting or adjusting the flow of electricity through your myenergi devices.
You will also have the ability to override all DSR events via the myenergi mobile application.
