Demand response

There are certain times when we expect a higher energy demand on the grid. Synergy rewards businesses that reduce their energy usage, or generate energy onsite during these times.

If your business qualifies, you'll be on-call to reduce your energy use during peak energy ‘events’ and give you access to a great range of energy reporting and forecasting tools – even if we never call upon your business to reduce its energy.

How it works

As soon as Synergy is aware of an event, we’ll notify you so you can activate your reductions. If you arrange it, Synergy can notify you then activate your response remotely. There are a maximum of eight Demand Response ‘events’ each year that last no longer than four hours each (maximum 32 hours a year).

Receive regular monthly payments

Just by being available, your business will get regular payments that will reduce your overall energy costs. Add to that, access to the E2M energy monitoring, and you’ll be able to understand, manage and get detailed reports on you energy use.

Your involvement also says a lot about your business and its endeavours to help maintain our reliable electricity grid.

Save time on energy management reports

Quickly view, manage and report on your current and historical electricity consumption and emissions.

These bespoke, reporting tools allow you to simplify reporting, compliance, reconciliation and management of your energy needs.

Improve your energy efficiency

The more visibility you have of your energy use, the more efficient you can be.

Your business will have access to near real-time, interactive web-based energy reporting and forecasting tools, provided by Metro Power’s award winning E2M service.

Forecast your energy consumption

Predictive Energy Management forecasts your estimated energy consumption up to 96 hours in advance.

This gives you you the opportunity to organise operations and production to manage your energy use.
