Step 3: Notifications and Alerts

Notifications of upcoming periods of risk will be communicated by email, including day-ahead reports. Peak alerts are issued the morning of and may be adjusted as conditions shift throughout the day. Delivery of Peak Alerts occurs in the dashboard and by email, SMS, and API. Your facilities demand data can be made visible and overlaid onto the dashboard.

Step 4: Reporting

Your facility’s performance relative to the five peaks and other days where alerts occurred are woven into a report analysis and communicated with other members of your team.

This includes the amount of power your facility curtailed and the expected saving you will have locked-in for the coming year.

Follow the peak alert type best suited for your facility.

Load Curtailment

Not all loads are equally flexible or have the same lost cost to power down. We offer three alert types tracked to different probabilities of hitting all five peaks, balancing the number of alerts and number of hours called with accurate advanced notification. This methodology allows you to customize your approach.

Energy Storage

Identify the duration of your energy storage system, and we’ll identify the highest probability hours for which to discharge your systems. With limited energy duration, accuracy is paramount, while advanced notice and the number of overall alerts can be less critical.

Generators

With fewer constraints around energy duration, our generator alert allows for more generous coverage of boundary risk days and hours while layering in considerations for energy pricing.

ICI and Global Adjustment

As an ICI participant, energy users can achieve large cost saving by reducing demand taking energy reduction measures at the same time as the provincial peaks. Understanding when these peaks will occur and taking appropriate action are the keys to enabling this significant saving opportunity. NRG Peaks has been reliably and successfully helping many of Ontario’s largest energy users achieve this since 2010.
