We have been assisting large energy users in Australia’s National Electricity Market to operate a form of demand response since as early as 2002. Our clients using deSide all have some form of spot exposure – or a reason to change their net consumption in relation to the real-time electricity price.
Generally speaking, we have seen that there are three core roles filled by staff of our client organisations – as summed up in the table below:
|This “Production Operator” role might have a different name in different organisations – but, from the perspective of demand response in response to electricity spot market pricing, has some uniform characteristics.
|The “Shift Supervisor” will be responsible for managing the Production Operators.
|You might be known as the “Energy Manager” or some other title like that.
Obviously there are differences between one client and the next (and, no doubt, you have your own specific permutations). However we suspect you will also see these three types of generic roles within your organisation.
We’re always keen to hear more from you about how we can help – please give us a call on +61 (0)7 3368 4064.
