The Association for Decentralised Energy (ADE), the leading trade body representing more than 140 energy market stakeholders from across the industrial, commercial and public sectors, has named GridBeyond as the winner of the Industrial Award 2019.
The Award is for GridBeyond’s project with Eurac Poole, the leading European foundry and a part of the MAT Foundry Group. GridBeyond connected Eurac’s energy intensive assets to its Hybrid Battery & Demand Network, managed by machine-learning driven intelligent energy technology platform, Point.
Here’s what award judge, Steve Hodgson – Editor of Energy World, said about our winning submission…
Thanks to GridBeyond’s solution, Eurac benefits from enhanced energy services and programmes, including: access to grid balancing services and capacity market, monitoring and analytics, and dynamic price and asset optimisation.
Mark Davis, Director UK & Ireland at GridBeyond commented:
“We are delighted that the industry experts at ADE awarded our partnership with Eurac Poole the Industrial Award for our innovative approach to energy management and implementation of pioneering technologies.
“The goal of the whole GridBeyond team, from our software developers, engineers, project managers, through to our client consultants, is to support our industrial and commercial partners. We do this by delivering the most advanced technological solutions that enhance their sustainability, operational integrity and business profitability.”
Steve Merritt, General Manager at Eurac Poole, commented:
“We have been working with GridBeyond since 2016 and have built a successful partnership which allows us to achieve the benefits of DSR participation, whilst minimising the impact on the daily operations of the business.”
Eurac partnered with GridBeyond in early 2016. The company wanted to boost their bottom line, optimise their operations and step-up sustainability by connecting their intensive equipment to GridBeyond’s intelligent energy platform, Point.
When, in 2018, GridBeyond launched its Hybrid Battery & Demand Network, Eurac were keen to be one of the first companies in the world to implement the unique solution. Consequently, Eurac gained access to the increased resilience and energy flexibility which supported the company’s greater participation in the fastest and most financially rewarding grid balancing programmes.
