Improved Energy Flexibility Services

For Commercial & Industrial Businesses

We are a leading provider in demand response and multiple energy flexibility services.

With over 200 commercial and industrial customers across the world, we create revenue by managing your energy use. Save on costs while earning extra revenue through our flexibility services.

Unlock Your Inherent Flexibility

The global energy landscape is changing fast. The shift towards a carbon-free future requires us to rethink how we use energy. With growing investments in renewables and a boom in electrification, this change is only going to grow.

Sympower provides a sophisticated software solution to ensure that you are ready for the energy transition. By managing a wide range of electrical assets and processes, we guarantee a more versatile energy system. One that can handle the growing demand for electricity, and the introduction of renewables.

But What is Flexibility?

Flexibility is the ability for customers to change the energy production and/or consumption of their electrical assets.

This flexibility allows Sympower to use our sophisticated software solutions to stabilise the grid through demand response and other flexibility services. In turn, our customers get added revenue for their contribution. We unlock the flexibility of electricity assets across many different industries, to maximise their value across energy markets. If the grid is out of balance, we can temporarily adjust the power of machines and processes through our automated platform.

Save Energy to Earn Revenue

Managing the flexibility of the energy consumption of the end-user, based on price signals or incentives, is used to balance out the electricity grid.

Many flexibility services are linked with energy companies and other service providers. This can lead to conflicting interests that don’t always prioritise their customers. Sympower is an independent aggregator; that means we work as independent players. We provide flexibility across a number of markets, with no conflict of interest.

Our customers’ interests are our interests. That’s why we want to create the most value for you. By taking you every step of the way, from installation to monitoring, we guarantee that you earn the most revenue by working with us.

DEMAND RESPONSE

ENERGY CURTAILMENT

BATTERY STORAGE

The process is simple

Flex-Intake

Here our technical engineers look for any potential in our processes and assets.

We’re identifying any sources of reliable energy flexibility

Installation

Your flexible assets are then connected to Sympower’s platform via our hardware and cloud integration.

Here we can monitor and control your energy.

Go-Live

After our engineers hook up the communication system, we collect and share your energy data with the market operator.

Now you’ve gained a risk-free revenue stream without any upfront costs, while participating in grid balancing services.

Optimisation and monitoring

By constantly monitoring predicted capacity, price forecasts and market conditions, our platform optimises the bidding strategy to maximise your revenue.

Sympower can provide services in the following industries:

Data Center

Non-urgent computational work carried out by data centres can often be rescheduled according to the grid’s needs.

Crypto Currency

Cryptocurrencies are mined using large amounts of computational power, which can be adjusted during any part of the day, therefore taking advantage of lower electricity price signals.

Pulp & Paper

Paper production involves an energy-intensive drying process. This energy is often produced on-site using combined heat and power (CHP). Advance planning of the production process will enable control of the amount of energy required at any given point in time. This allows a more efficient process to control the CHP production unit in line with the grid’s needs, without disturbing the paper production process.

Food Processing

Food Processing often requires heat input, which uses a lot of energy. This energy is often produced on-site using combined heat and power (CHP). By smartly planning the production process, the energy consumption, and therefore the moment the CHP production unit supplies energy, can be adjusted to the grid needs, without negatively affecting the production process.

Hotels & Commercials Buildings

Hotels use HVAC systems that can be momentarily turned up or down for short periods of time depending on the grid’s needs, without affecting levels of comfort for customers.

Chemical & Pharmaceutical Production

Chemical production often requires heat input, which uses a lot of energy. This energy is often produced on-site using combined heat and power (CHP). By smartly planning the production process, the energy consumption, and therefore the moment the CHP production unit supplies energy, can be adjusted to the grid needs, without negatively affecting the production process.

Greenhouses

Industrial greenhouses require significant amounts of electricity for providing the necessary lighting conditions for plants. Lighting can be momentarily turned down or off, without affecting the growing process of the crops.

Wood Processing

Wood processing involves a drying process that uses large amounts of energy. This energy is often produced on-site using combined heat and power (CHP).

By smartly planning the production process, the energy consumption, and therefore the moment the CHP production unit is turned on, can be adjusted to the grid needs, without negatively affecting the production process.

Water Treatment Plants

Water treatment plants require large amounts of energy for cleaning processes. However, they don’t always need to be fully operational at all times. Forward planning the cleaning process allows the energy consumption to be adjusted to the grid’s needs, without negatively affecting the process.

Metal Production

Metal production often requires heat input, which uses a lot of energy. This energy is often produced on-site using combined heat and power (CHP).

By smartly planning the production process, the energy consumption, and therefore the moment the CHP production unit is turned on, can be adjusted to the grid needs, without negatively affecting the production process.

Frequently asked questions

What is demand response and how does it work?

Demand response is a way for your company to lower its energy cost by helping the grid operator balance electricity supply and demand. Whenever there is too much or too little energy in the grid, companies with flexible assets can earn extra revenue by adjusting their electricity consumption or production. Learn more about demand response.

What annual revenue can I expect working with Sympower?

The revenue you earn with Sympower varies considerably depending on the power your assets use and the number of hours of operation throughout the year. As an example, a 10 MW flexible asset in Sweden that is available to participate in balancing markets for 20 hours per day can expect to earn €900,000 in one year.

Do I need to pay any hardware or installation costs?

No, there are no upfront costs when you work with us! After the contract is signed, we will send our specialised electricians to your site and they will take care of the installation, unless you prefer using your own electrician. Sympower will cover the installation costs by taking a % of the revenue generated by your assets after they are live on the balancing markets.

How often will my assets be switched off?

How often your assets are switched off can change considerably depending on the specific market. For example, in the FCR-D market in Sweden, a Sympower asset was activated (i.e. the power consumption was reduced), on average, 20 times per year.

Why should I work with Sympower?

Sympower has been operating in European balancing markets as an independent flexibility services provider for over 7 years. We are active in 10 countries and control more than 750 MW across the world. Sympower’s independence means you’re free to change your energy supplier while still being able to access electricity balancing markets, when you sign a contract directly with us.
