Demand Side Energy Management
Demand side responses to electricity supply are being incentivised by HM Government and the National Grid to manage restricted grid capacity. UKWIR investigated the potential for demand side energy management in the UK water industry and its challenges and constraints. The principal challenge to water companies in deploying demand side management is that diurnal peak demands for water and electricity coincide.
The UK Water sector needs to proactively pursue and systematically implement value recovery from power use to maximise benefits available. An estimate of benefits of demand management deployment based on interventions in water and wastewater tested in this study produced a sector benefit total of £84million per annum for England and Wales. This opportunity for TOTEX reduction for both water companies and the water sector will require a shift in priorities towards investment in improved flexibility, controllability and energy efficiency to optimise processes and plant.
