Demand Side Response in the North West

Demand Side Response – Organisations wanted!

Electricity North West have just announced that they’re going to be running a heavily targeted and incentivised program to help them meet fluctuations in demand. If you’re familiar with what we do, you’ll know that we can help with these Demand Side Response projects.

What does it mean?

Distributed energy providers who can adjust how much electricity they consume or generate can support the distribution network at times of high demand, and receive payment in return. It’s very specific, in some areas of Manchester, it’s down to a locality based around a single substation.

Where do I need to be?

There are seven locations scattered right across the ENW region:

  • Alston, near Carlisle, Cumbria
  • Blackfriars Road, Salford and Central Manchester
  • Cheetham Hill, North Manchester
  • Coniston, Cumbria
  • Easton, Cumbria
  • Stuart Street, Central and East Manchester
  • Nelson, East Lancashire.

Behind this list is a series of specific postcodes that relate to the sub-stations in question. If you fall into these areas, then we can do the rest for you.

How we can help

Firstly, one of the specialist services that Efficient Power Solutions offer is Design & Consultancy. We carry out this work with projects such as this very much in mind. There are some hurdles to be overcome, none of them particularly onerous, but there’s a lot of terminology outside of the norm. We’ll make sure that you get those boxes ticked to get you on board.

Secondly, once things are moving forwards, there will be technical requirements that we can help put in place.

Is this of interest?

ENW are holding a webinar on the 25th of this month to elaborate further on this significant development. If you want to discuss how you might be able to take part, then please contact us on +44 (0)1909 569 016 or 07711484257, or send an email to
