Lockeed Martin

Utilities and system operators are increasingly turning to demand response (DR) as a cost effective and environmentally responsible way to serve peak load—and customers are increasingly looking to DR programs to help manage energy costs. DR is clearly a powerful tool for maintaining grid reliability and managing wholesale market price spikes, but shedding more load than is required for longer than necessary leads to lost utility revenue. SEEload’s ability to implement precise load relief at the system, substation or feeder level provides utilities with unprecedented control of their distribution networks, while optimizing the grid, economic and customer impacts of DR events. SEEload’s DR program-driven control also helps utilities manage Distributed Energy Resources such as plug-in electric vehicles when these assets need to be managed via DR events.
