- For electric utility companies variability of demand for electricity results in disproportionately high cost for services consumed only for a small duration of the day.High peak demand means: More power plants and network infrastructure must be available to supply these peaks. 'Dispatchable' energy sources used to meet peaks are often less efficient gas plants and, increasingly, diesel generation with a higher carbon intensity than alternatives. Use (and storage) of local renewable and low carbon energy. Utility companies try to encourage reduced use by customers at peak times using premium prices (DUOS and TRIADS).Energy managers in customer organisations can respond by smoothing demand on external electricity supply through: Short time energy buffering/storing (boosting). Rationing of services at peak times. Use (and storage) of local renewable electricity.The IODICUS project is developing an intelligent,autonomous control of a customer campus electricity systemwith the potential to: Reduce peak power demand Reduce overall electricity consumption Make optimal use of local renewable generation
