A Smart Mobile Solution with Novel MCP, Peak Demand and Hourly Grid Emissions with Multiple Integration Points

Introduction

Class-A customers can manage their Global Adjustment (GA) costs by reducing demand during peak periods. These customers pay GA based on their percentage and contribution to the top five peak Ontario demand hours. These customers need to anticipate the top peak hours to be able shift their demand and as a result reduce their consumption at the opportune time.

There are several methods to anticipate the top peak hours:

• Time of year: Some part of peaks occurs during a sustained heat wave in the summer or cold snap in the winter.

• Time of day and days of the week: Peaks tend to occur on weekdays when businesses are in operation

• Specific tools on the IESO’s website: On the Class-A global adjustment page at www.ieso.ca/peaktracker, customers will find the current day and week-ahead demand.

The Class-A customers need a smart and automated tools to predict and estimate the possible peak at the right time and to help them make best decision to shift their loads to the best time of day. Indirect emissions (e.g., electricity, district steam, district heating, district cooling, etc.) are one of the main areas of CO2e emissions. Electricity is one of the most significant sources of emissions; therefore, it is essential to calculate and report these emissions correctly. To accurately calculate CO2e emissions, a clear understanding of standards, their relationships, the similarities / dissimilarities among them is essential. In reducing and–or managing CO2e emissions, we need to measure and find ways for objective comparison, but there are challenges. The forecasting of CO2e emissions is critical in preventing the impact of climate change. Understanding how to reduce emissions, as it can be directly related to energy conservation and energy management, will save energy and in turn money.

Methods and Materials

The published paper can be found at Energy Science & Engineering Journal via https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1002/ese3.272.  Screaming Power’s continued work on this topic will be presented in the coming months after 2 years of research on weather normalization and Cognitive Conservation.  This innovative intelligence algorithm and method is patent pending and applied in Screaming Power’s business tools for Energy Utilities and large enterprise customers wishing to discover better ways to manage, analyze and forecast energy costs today and in the future.  

 

Screaming Power wants to thank Dr. Soosan Beheshti, Dr. Asad Sahebalam and Edward Nidoy for their hard work and commitment to helping make energy management more accurate in the changing weather landscape.
