Save – and earn

We’ll analyse the energy usage of your operations – including electric machinery, equipment and other assets – then suggest changes that optimise your performance and deliver monthly savings.

We can also help you take advantage of both Drax ElectriFlex, our own demand management scheme, and the demand flexibility service (DFS) from National Grid ESO (NGESO).

Avoid peak costs

When electricity demand spikes, the price rises too. So, flexing your operations and energy usage in peak periods can deliver significant savings.

Generate power and income

Producing your own power can help support the grid when demand rises while cutting your costs and selling your excess power to earn extra revenue.

Trade energy

By flexing your operations and energy usage when short-term wholesale electricity prices rise, you can sell the nominated power you don’t need.

Sustainability icon

Back renewables

Flexibly shifting energy use from periods of high demand helps maintain grid reliability as the UK becomes more reliant on intermittent renewables.

Legislation icon

Support stability

Reacting to grid signals by turning flexible assets up, down, or off reduces the need for fossil fuels to deliver grid balancing mechanisms.

Competitive advantage icon

Get closer to net zero

Flexibility supports net zero cost-effectiveness as the grid spends less on running reserve assets and turning off renewable generation.
