David Hill, business development director at Open Energi, talks with Bloomberg’s Guy Johnson about how the company’s Dynamic Demand technology is helping to provide a greener power grid. He speaks on “The Pulse.”
Open Energi is proud to have been awarded Innovation of the Year at the 2014 BusinessGreen Leaders Awards for its Dynamic Demand technology, a unique form of Demand Response which helps National Grid to balance electricity supply and demand on a second-by-second basis.
Now in their fourth year, the BusinessGreen Leaders Awards celebrate the leading businesses, executives, entrepreneurs, investors, and campaigners from across the green economy, highlighting how these pioneers are driving the emergence of innovative and sustainable new business models and technologies. The Awards were extremely competitive with over 260 entries whittled down to 130 shortlisted entries.
“Everyone at Open Energi is delighted and proud that Dynamic Demand has been recognised by the prestigious BusinessGreen Leaders Awards,” commented Open Energi Commercial Director, Ged Holmes. “Balancing supply and demand is vital to the operation and security of the UK electricity system and Dynamic Demand has a vital role to play in delivering clean, secure and affordable energy in the years to come.”
