Abstract
The energy transition is leading many Commercial and Industrial (C&I) customers to re-evaluate their energy and sustainability objectives and programmes.  Energy Management enabled through recent IT capabilities as well as Distributed Energy Resources (DER implementation and Demand Side Response (DSR) are now essential components of a C&I energy strategy and also a value adding opportunity.   This paper highlights the opportunity for combined implementation of advanced Energy Management, DER management systems (DERMS) and DSR in behind the meter C&I situations.  The paper works from the EC OPTIMSED project and its ‘Factory 4.0’ vision and objectives.   The paper draws out the results of development and implementation of real time and historic energy dashboards, two DSR service opportunities available in the UK market and an analysis tool for annualized value of DSR and DER implementation.  The paper concludes that emerging IT and DERMS technological solutions are a good fit for the C&I market; that configurability and extensibility for DER, DSR and Dashboards is particularly valuable given the ongoing changes in the energy sector; that integration of energy/DER/DSR with factory production scheduling; and that modest but clear financial benefits area available from the demonstrated use cases and several other use cases.
