Philadelphia-based software solutions provider Customized Energy Solutions (CES) is offering demand response resources the ability to participate in the PJM Interconnection synchronous reserve (SR) market as flexible resources, which are assigned on a five-minute basis versus the traditional one-hour time period for non-flexible resources.

"CES' Market Operations Center (MOC), staffed 24/7 with PJM-qualified operators, includes a fully redundant Siemens PowerCC SCADA system that communicates via dual links to PJM's energy management systems," remarks Richard Gilkey, vice president of demand response services at CES. "This system enables us to capture both flexible and non-flexible resource assignments as well as SR event notifications in fractions of a second."
