Flexitricty has revealed its partners for its BEIS-backed Quickturn project, which will give small energy users the chance to access the demand-side response (DSR) market.
The project, announced at the start of July, is to examine how smaller commercial energy users can provide DSR services. Scottish Water Horizon, Veolia, Glasgow City Council and Northumberland City Council are among those to be confirmed as taking part, with Flexitricity also working alongside Jones Food Company in Scunthorpe. It will support the vertical farm production plant in providing balancing services and improving energy efficiency.
Founder and CSO of Flexitricity Alastair Martin said: “The era of the passive energy user is over. Not only is a smarter energy system essential for tackling climate change, it is also fairer and will allow everyone to benefit – from businesses of all size to domestic energy users.”
