A new and exclusive partnership between BG Energy Solutions and OakTree Power.
A new and exclusive partnership between BG Energy Solutions and OakTree Power was formed in September 2020 with the vision to utilise an intelligent combination of proven digital technologies, designed with the highest levels of reliability and security. And all with no up-front investment.
The electricity used by various non-essential plant in your buildings can be reduced or turned off for short periods of time without altering the building’s performance. This is known as the building’s ‘Flexible Load’. And Flexible Load has a value.
The UK’s national and local electricity networks is increasingly coming under stress at certain times for a variety of reasons and the network operators use Flexible Load to get it back into balance and avoid power cuts. When they need to ‘balance the grid’, they pay for Flexible Load to be provided by requesting OakTree Power to intelligently and silently adjust the electricity consumption in customers’ buildings. In effect, they use Flexible Load as an operational tool. They call this tool ‘Demand Side Response’ or DSR. In addition, OakTree Power’s real-time energy control platform employs Artificial Intelligence and machine learning technology to selectively adjust your buildings’ electricity demand at certain times of the day and week depending on availability, providing you with substantial energy cost savings.
This does not involve diesel generators. OakTree Power pays for the installation of our ‘box-on-the-wall’ in your buildings which enables remote access to the buildings’ non-essential electrical plant and OakTree takes a fee for ‘selling’ your Flexible Load into various flexibility markets. This is a proven solution which many non-domestic buildings are benefiting from such as offices, warehouses, universities, hotels and healthcare facilities.
So, with no investment required, a new, regular, passive income is generated and energy costs and CO2 emissions are reduced, helping you to achieve your net zero ambitions. All without any negative impact on your building’s performance.
In fact none of the occupants will notice any difference.
