We pay customers to use electricity when there’s too much wind energy.
Flexitricity Footroom is Britain’s first system for making use of excess wind power. We pay you to increase consumption or reduce generation at your site, so that National Grid doesn’t have to pay wind farms to shut down.
Footroom, or demand turn-up, benefits organisations able to increase consumption or reduce generation when wind output is high.
Small generators can be paid to reduce generation for the toughest half-hours in a high wind event.
The more a generator is used in normal business activities, the more it can earn in Footroom. The best Footroom resources have storage or inertia.
Flexible loads can earn by consuming more when wind output is high. The best sites have storage or inertia in their systems, including:
We only work with loads that can make practical use of the extra consumption. The more flexibility a load has, the more revenue it can generate.
