Demand response programs are opening up new opportunities for ESCOs to play a significant role in the operation and optimisation of energy grids. After all, ESCOs have a unique competitive advantage: they can combine their energy management expertise with granular customer insights to help reduce or shift their clients’ energy usage during peak periods in response to time-based tariffs or other incentives. Demand response also offers a great way to for ESCOs to extend energy services beyond efficiency by contributing to grid stability, safety and environmental sustainability while earning additional savings and opening up new revenue streams for their customers. But does this mean ESCOs will enter into competition with the new market players known as demand response aggregators?
