Haven Power and GridBeyond announce partnership

Supplier Haven Power and demand side flexibility provider GridBeyond have announced a new partnership aimed at helping business customers trade the power they produce and participate in demand side response.

Haven Power supplies renewable energy as standard to its customer base. GridBeyond’s platform powered by machine learning, supports the integration of intermittent energies, such as wind and solar, onto the grid by encouraging and enabling participation of large energy consumers in Demand Side Response (DSR) programmes. The two companies say the partnership will give business customers better access to energy technology and markets.

Haven Power’s trading teams will work with GridBeyond to ensure that DSR revenues are maximised for their customers. This will include accessing wholesale markets in combination with DSR programmes.

Michael Phelan, chief executive and co-founder at GridBeyond, said: “2019 will bring significant developments and growth to our business, and we are delighted to kick it off with this exciting and valuable partnership. ..

“GridBeyond is keen to develop collaborative, transparent partnerships where parties work together for the benefit of the whole industry. Today’s announcement comes just over a month after we informed about our collaboration with the commercial entity Electricity North West (Construction and Maintenance) to provide innovative energy technology to more than 900 industrial, commercial and public sector businesses in the North West of England”
