Demansys adds 75-MW of reliability to NY power grid

Demansys Energy began the operations of a 75-MW aggregate of real-time, demand-side resources through a New York Independent System Operator (NYISO) program.

The Grid Daemon Platform is being used to provide energy, reserves and regulation to the wholesale markets, alongside traditional generation.

The program permits the aggregation of end-use customers to provide services to the grid by controlling them using a supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system.

The system responds to automated generator control (AGC) signals from the grid operator, leveraging the same technology used to control traditional power plants.

Managing energy assets in real time, the platform adjusts energy usage of commonly-used equipment and storage resources, without negatively affecting process or product, to provide reliability services to the grid operator.
