Triad management: what you need to know to save your business £££££s
David Reed is Head of npower Business Solutions, overseeing the relationship with customers and energy consultants and helping to build closer partnerships that deliver the best energy management solutions for UK businesses
Every winter, savvy businesses aim to reduce consumption during the three periods of peak demand – or Triads – in a bid to save as much as £54,969 per megawatt in Transmission Network Use of System (TNUoS) charges.*
But Triad management is a complex business. Not only does it rely on having access to accurate forecasts (as Triad periods are not confirmed until after the season ends) – but also on having an effective strategy to either reduce consumption or switch to on-site generation or storage.
Catch up with the latest developments
To bring you up to date with best practice and all the latest developments, we’ve produced a comprehensive report: Managing Triads – what you need to know to avoid winter peaks and save your business thousands.
This report is free to download from our new Energy Know-How portal and covers:
• What exactly Triads are and how they are calculated
• Historical performance
• The growing challenges of successfully forecasting Triads
• How you can receive advance warning
• Why an appropriate demand-side response (DSR) strategy is key to reducing costs
• Important changes to come
