Energy & Demand Response
Solutions by Ziphany
Ziphany's team of demand response experts delivers innovative, customizable energy software applications to energy marketing and energy information management customers. With the incredible growth of the demand response industry, ZDRP - Ziphany's Demand Response Platform for Aggregators and Utilities - has become the core focus of the company.
Demand Response pays users to lower their energy use in order to affect price or to meet demand when the electric grid is stressed.
When the grid is plagued with high demand and the threat of blackouts, it is forced to engage the most expensive and dirty of power sources: "peaking power plants." But, as the global population rises, aging infrastructure struggles to deliver. On top of this, concerns for global warming and debates over energy independence are forcing the exploration and development of energy efficient alternatives.
In light of these challenges, renewable energies such as wind and solar have gained considerable investment and technological development, however, they are falling drastically short of meeting immediate needs. This is where demand response is seen as an immediately accessible, renewable form of energy.
The Enabler of Demand Response
Ziphany does NOT provide services directly to end-users. Instead, it is Ziphany's role to enable those who do: demand response providers (also known as Aggregators or curtailment service providers), Utilities, and Market Operators. Ziphany works on behalf of its customers in New York, PJM, New England, Texas, California, Ontario, the Midwest, and wherever DR is a viable option.
