A Market Platform for Demand Flexibility
Demand Flexibility is energy efficiency, demand response, electrification, distributed generation, and storage working together to achieve a clean and stable grid.
The solutions necessary to drive consumer demand, private capital, and real grid and climate benefits exist, but can only scale if we enable real market access.
The Demand Flexibility Marketplace enables the innovative business models and technology in the broader market through a Flexibility Purchase Agreement (FPA) that pays for the maximum cost-effective value to the grid and climate, without the barriers and complexity of traditional utility programs. Companies are free to develop their unique business models and technologies, without complex program rules and deemed outcomes.
Utilities pay only for measured and delivered demand flexibility (load shape impact to their grid), at the exact rate that makes each project cost-effective by definition. Rather then running complicated solicitations, picking winners, and taking the performance and business risk, the Demand Flexibility Marketplace allows utilities to engage the broad market of solutions for their customers and focus on sending a price signal that appropriately values flexibility for their grid.
Demand Flexibility Marketplace is based on open-source transparent measurement using the CalTRACK 2.0 Methods and the OpenEEmeter and part of the Linux Foundation Energy. Code and methods are open-source and available for all parties to review and utilize without restrictions.
