There are 5 core components that you’ll need to integrate, and use, to gain the most value from your package licence to deSide ® for your site(s).
Various aspects of the deSide service have been designed with respect to the three core Energy Users roles we commonly find participating in Demand Response.
deSide Package Components
|Data Feed to Process Control System
A core part of the value delivered by the deSide® package is the ability to integrate the secure, reliable and timely data feed into your pre-existing process control system – enabling your existing team of Process Operators to view electricity prices in the same way as any other process input data stream: including
|deSide Display Screens
For relevant people in your organisation, the deSide® display screens will provide visibility of the key data you need to watch to plan out operations for your day ahead.
Operators might sometimes have a deSide screen displayed to see price forecasts, but this depends on specifics of each energy user
|Small Ticker application
Some of our clients use the small Ticker application to maintain some visibility of current prices in the region(s) they care about whilst working on other things.
We’re providing increased visibility of electricity price and demand via small-screen responsive web pages that are hence accessible on any smart phone regardless of operating system (Android, Apple, and other).
|It is assumed that the Operators will use whatever mobile displays are already used onsite in conjunction with broader process control|
|deSide online Analysis
For Managers and others engaged in more strategic thinking about electricity prices, we’re providing a web-based analytical capability to enable them to query a set of historical AEMO market data, and also ASX Energy futures prices.
To augment what functionality is provided by your own Process Control System.
|It is assumed that the Operators will use alerting within broader process control|
No organisation is identical to another – however we believe you will find this table useful for understanding which components of the service have been designed with particular roles in mind.
