  • Diagnosis and consulting : Calculation of optimum capacity reduction after analysis of power load pattern of the customer’s business place
  • Risk management : Creation and operation of optimum resource portfolio suitable for the customer’s load pattern and reduction facilities in preparation for the contract amount and penalty
  • Management of settled amount : Transparent payment and management of settled amount based on stable financial structure
  • Demand Response Management System(DRMS) : Real time provision of electric power use and power reduction amount of customers responding to demand; confirmation of details of settlement depending on the result
Expected Effects
  • If selected as a demand response business operator, a basic fund is paid each month; incentive is additionally paid when actual reduction is made by the request of Korea Power Exchange.
    * Basic fund = Registered capacity X 40,761won/kw (for 2015)
    * Incentive = Amount of reduction X Maximum unit price of power generation (150~200 won/kWh)
  • Electricity bill and CO2emission saving resulting from energy saving
