Demand Response Module - How Will It Benefit My Business?

Published by Lee Kelly on 11 February 2020

You may have heard about the demand response module or DRM already. Or, the concept may be totally new to you. Either way, it is something you need to know about as it could be about to change the way in which we approach energy consumption.

Let's take a look at what it is and what its benefits are.

What Is the DRM?

Basically, the DRM offers a dynamic set of storage solutions to help manage the power usage at a specific site. The idea is to store power until it is needed and then put this additional power into action when the system identifies this need.

The module itself is designed to achieve consistent and predictable results for business owners operating medium and high-voltage connections. The idea is to protect systems from power surges and other fluctuations by achieving a consistent and predictable level of current.

What Are the Benefits of the DRM?

So, what exactly can business owners expect from the demand response module? Let's take a look at some of the key benefits below.

  • Safety for personnel - Power surges and other fluctuations can cause dangerous situations for teams who are on-site doing their jobs. A DRM can protect these teams.
  • Safety for a business's systems - The DRM also provides protection for sensitive instrumentation and other pieces of equipment, which can become damaged in the event of a power surge.
  • Predictable performance - By moderating the power supply and ensuring consistency across the board, the DRM enables businesses to achieve predictable performance from their electrical systems. This is critical in an age when everything must be measurable and of demonstrable worth.
  • Easy monitoring and analytics - As a fully integrated solution, the DRM works alongside monitoring and analytics software to give businesses a clear picture of how the module, and their systems as a whole, is operating.
  • Better sustainability - The module is designed to work with sustainable energy solutions to support moves towards this kind of green, environmentally sound energy production. The DRM all but eliminates wastage and provides agile storage that makes it perfect for the businesses looking to transition towards these newer forms of power.
  • Better efficiency - One criticism that has been levelled against sustainable energy is its lack of efficiency in some situations. The DRM safeguards this efficiency by storing up surplus energy and introducing it back into the system in a safe and controlled manner.
  • Resiliency for businesses - Businesses need to be resilient, and the DRM provides this resilience in a number of ways. On the one hand, businesses need never worry about downtime or other issues that may disrupt operations. On the other, the DRM is sturdily constructed and is designed to stand up to the rigours that everyday operation throws its way.
  • High performance - The module is designed with high levels of performance in mind, which means businesses have the option to step their operations up a gear if required. Basically, business owners are able to assess the situation and then deploy more or less power as and when required, delivering flexibility and agility to the system.
  • Income generation - Businesses in some areas may even find that their DRM solution actively works to generate income for them. This is because their local council or other authority operate local buy-back tariffs that enable businesses and residences to sell surplus power back to the grid. Speak to your local authority to discover whether or not this is possible in your area.
