The legacy grids are being renovated to smart grids using various flavours of sensing, communication, control and internet technologies. Demand response (DR) is one of the most successfully implemented mechanisms on the smart grid platform as it exists today. This has enabled the active participation of consumers in providing flexibility through grid balancing services (once the preserve of centralised generators) – thereby reducing costs and carbon.
Dr Alastair Martin along with an expert panel of Flexitricity’s engineers and account managers will be discussing the implications of the MCPD for generator owners and demand response participants.
Success will be defined by a thousand small things
“We’re going to shake up how the National Grid is balanced”. That was the cry from Flexitricity that piqued the attention of the industry when the company announced that it was to become an energy supplier. It’s a watershed moment, and who wouldn’t want to be part of that!
The Medium Combustion Plant Directive (MCPD) seeks to reduce air pollution by controlling emissions from medium combustion plants (MCPs), which include both generators (with a rated thermal input between 0 – 50 MW) and boilers (with a rated thermal input between 1 - 50 MW).
