National Grid uses triads as a way to incentivise consumers to avoid consuming during these high-cost periods of peak demand. They do this via their Transmission Network Use of System (TNUoS) charges.
Customers can minimise their charges by reducing load and increasing generation when national demand is at its highest. Flexitricity uses a range of unique proprietary tools to determine when assets should ‘run for triads’, and dispatches assets direct from our 24/7 control room.
Ofgem’s network charging reforms will remove export triad value for embedded generators in the northern half of the UK. However, export triad benefit in southern England and Wales, and avoiding triad import charges through demand reduction across most of Britain remain valuable. The right triad strategy for each site will depend on location and operational conditions. Flexitricity will continue to offer our industry-leading operational triad management service to our customers to maximise their net benefit.
