Improve your energy strategy

We are accelerating the global transition towards ‘net zero’ by helping to build smarter, cleaner renewable energy systems.

Improving the energy strategy for commercial and industries

The global energy landscape is changing fast. The shift towards a carbon-free future not only requires us to adopt renewable technologies but also to manage this power in a smarter way.

Sympower is a flexibility service provider that helps customers adapt successfully towards this energy transition. By combining proprietary software and hardware, we provide an end-to-end solution that offers real-time monitoring and balancing of electricity supply and demand.

Our customers rely on our experience and expertise to manage a wide range of electrical assets and processes, such as HVAC equipment, motors, chillers and lighting across diverse industries including paper and wood mills, industrial greenhouses, data centres and cold storage facilities.

What is flexibility?

Flexibility is a crucial component for building a clean and sustainable energy system.

 It provides customers with the option to add, lower, change or postpone the production and/or consumption of electricity by making temporary adjustments to power generation and consumption based on its value and the grid’s needs. Sympower provides sophisticated software solutions to facilitate flexibility to stabilise the grid, while rewarding our customers with financial incentives in return. We unlock the flexibility of electric assets across many different industries and maximise the value of this flexibility across energy markets.When the grid is out of balance, we can temporarily adjust the power of machines and processes through our advanced and automated demand response capabilities.

 

An efficient alternative to energy supply!

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.

Sympower provides this required flexibility through managing distributed electrical assets. This is an alternative to the traditional system where highly-polluting large power plants are used to provide this flexibility to respond to imbalances in the electricity grid.
Sympower’s solution reduces inefficiencies in the energy system, encourages smarter consumption patterns, and facilitates greater use of renewables. Our customers save money by reducing their overall energy costs. Through participating, they also actively contribute to our vision – a fully renewable energy system that enables a sustainable world. It’s a win-win situation.

The process is simple

Flex-Intake

We first carefully analyse the possibilities and potential value of your processes and assets.

Sympower’s technical engineers evaluate your processes and technology to identify reliable sources of flexibility.

Installation

Your flexible assets are connected to Sympower’s software platform via hardware or cloud integration, for monitoring and control purposes.

Go-Live

After our engineers have configured the communications systems, energy data is collected and shared with the market operator, allowing essential reporting and billing to take place.

Without any upfront costs or impact to your critical operations, your new, risk-free revenue streams are generated as you participate in our grid balancing services.

Optimization and monitoring

Continual monitoring of predicted capacity, price forecasts and market conditions ensures our software platform optimizes the bidding strategy to ensure maximum revenue is generated from the energy markets.

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.

Contact one of our experts +

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.

What annual revenue can I expect working with Sympower?

The revenue you can earn working with Sympower can vary considerably depending on how much 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 is nothing that you need to pay upfront. 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. As an example, in the FCR-D market in Sweden, a Sympower asset was activated (i.e. the power consumption was reduced), on average, 20 times in 1 year.

Why should I work with Sympower?

Sympower is an independent flexibility provider that has been operating in European balancing markets for over 6 years. We are live in 5 countries and control more than 400 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, provided that you sign a contract directly with us.
