Demand Response

We help the world’s leading aggregators deliver solutions that enable their customers to react in real-time to fluctuations on the grid.

We have designed the most advanced hardware and software platform for demand response and frequency response, which creates the communications link between energy supply and demand.

The energy transition requires us to keep up with ever-changing rules and regulations in order to deliver our demand response services. EpiSensor enables us to meet those requirements in an agile and futureproof way.

Deliver scalable and reliable demand response systems – with ease

Our real-time IoT infrastructure can be commissioned by non-specialised personnel – reducing the cost of deployment significantly compared to traditional systems. We have the technology, tools and experience to deploy and manage tens of thousands of energy assets across multiple countries.

Achieve compliance with enterprise security and world-class accuracy

As Transmission Systems Operators (TSO) and Distribution System Operators (DSO) define new markets and technical requirements, it’s essential to be able to adapt quickly. Enterprise-grade security from end-to-end is essential for the sites we deploy to – like banks, data centres, manufacturing plants and grid-scale batteries – to mitigate evolving security threats.

Why do our customers choose to work with us?

Accuracy

All EpiSensor demand response controllers are individually factory calibrated to Class 0.5S accuracy and are capable of 100ms under-frequency response time. We pair each meter with a set of CTs or Rogowski Coils during manufacture and calibrate the electronics using laboratory-grade equipment.

Scalability

Our Industrial IoT Platform allows you to manage thousands of sites spread across multiple countries, all reporting data in real time to your IT infrastructure. These sites can include multiple Gateways capable of collecting and reporting data from up to 100 controllers each.

Security

We implement enterprise-class security from ‘sensor to server’. Your data flows directly from the Gateway to your cloud infrastructure. Our ZigBee Pro wireless sensor network uses AES 128-bit encrypted communications, operating in the international license-free 2.4GHz ISM band.

Ease of Installation

Our IoT platform can be commissioned by non-specialised personnel, without the need for specialised experience with traditional automation system technologies. All aspects of the system can be configured from an easy-to-use web interface on the Gateway, or remotely via an API.
