In collaboration with Entelios AG, E.ON has developed its first demand response product for German industrial and commercial customers, helping to ensure grid reliability through the optimization of electricity demand.

Demand response creates pools of flexibility (e.g., loads, generators and energy storage) that can reduce or increase consumption based on signals from the grid. With the widespread introduction of fluctuating renewable generation, such as from wind and solar power, actively managing the demand side of the power market has become a necessity, the companies say.

Entelios provides demand response solutions through its Demand-Response-as-a-Service and Virtual-Power-System-as-a-Service platforms. These tools are a part of the Entelios Software Suite and the E-Box communication interface.
