The article discusses the benefits of using dynamic demand technology in place of standby generation capacity that is utilized to provide balancing services. Dynamic demand works on fine-tuning domestic demand instead of adapting to fluctuating demand and eliminates the need for coal-fired power stations. The technology is already used for refrigeration, heating and ventilation systems and is being tested at three stores of Sainsbury.
