Peak Alert Types

Whether you respond to peak events by curtailing your power usage or dispatching a behind-the-meter battery or generator, NRG Peaks provides Peak Alerts that are actionable for you.

NRG Peaks offers three powerful Peak Alerts.

Load Curtailment

Not all loads are equally flexible or have the same lost cost to power down. So we offer three alert types tracked to different probabilities of hitting all five peaks, balancing the number of alerts and number of hours called while actively respecting the need for accurate advanced notification.

  • Advanced notice including day ahead reports and day-of reports with peak alerts issued in the early morning
  • Intra-day updates are communicated if conditions change
  • Duration of alert hours vary based on associated risk in a given day and hours
  • Alerts overlaid on NRG Peaks dashboard
  • 5 out of 5 peaks hit in all colour bands in summer 2019 with advanced notice
  • A ten-year track record that matches our probability-based methodology

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.

  • 2, 3, and 4-hour fixed duration alert bands to match energy storage specs
  • Shared by API, email, and SMS, Intra-day updates happen right up to the hour
  • Alerts overlaid onto the dashboard
  • Day-ahead reports and day-of reports, and other alert types are accessible
  • 5 of 5 peaks hit in all duration bands in summer 2019 with advanced notice

Generators

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

  • Option to trigger the start of your load-displacement on peak days with energy price thresholds
  • Alerts overlaid onto the dashboard
  • Day-ahead reports and day-of reports, and other alert types are accessible
  • 5 of 5 peaks hit in all duration bands in summer 2019 with advanced notice
