Leading the Way in Energy Flexibility
With the inexorable rise of renewables, flexibility is becoming increasingly relevant in the energy mix. Because these sources are intermittent and non-programmable, we must find alternative sources of flexibility to guarantee a constant balance between supply and demand and avoid grid inefficiencies. This is why utility and grid-sponsored Demand Response (DR) and flexibility programs allow companies to be compensated for their ability to be flexible about when they use energy. Enel X is at the forefront of energy innovation and a global leader in Demand Response, with a 6 GW capacity that will be doubled to 12 GW by 2024. Our Energy-as-a-Service (EaaS) approach enables the global transition to a sustainable economy. Enel X is the preferred platform and energy partner that businesses, Transmission System Operators (TSOs) and asset owners can use to manage their energy portfolio and price risk, accessing the full value of power flexibility thanks to our innovative, customizable energy solutions. Through our Flexibility Portfolio of integrated energy solutions, companies can monetize their flexible energy consumption profiles and the electricity they produce on-site, increase their resiliency and contribute to grid stability, while decarbonizing.
By 2050, almost 50% of global installed capacity will come from renewables.
By 2040, global electricity demand will rise by 60%.
By 2025, digital investments in the energy sector are set to reach $81 billion.
Customers are developing new needs, which require a customized and sustainable approach.

Demand Response Programs
Demand Response (DR) programs compensate companies who agree to modulate their energy consumption in response to grid signals. Utilities and grid operators use them to improve electricity network stability and enable the integration of renewable energy resources into the energy mix. Enel X offers its global customers the opportunity to participate in more than 50 programs worldwide and extract further value from their existing assets and energy consumption.
Generation and Energy Optimization (GEO)
Designed by Enel X for C&I clients that own an energy generation asset:
• GEO Basic allows businesses with an on-site energy generation system to sell the excess energy they produce on the electricity market.
• GEO Advanced allows businesses that own a combined cycle (CC) and a combined heat and power (CHP) system to optimize their energy production schedules thanks to a combination of advanced modeling and artificial intelligence.
Our customized energy management plan for businesses that own a backup generator. We can finance the backup generator upgrades, facilitating business participation in Demand Response (DR) programs with no upfront cost. Benefits include:
• Maximized earnings
• Access to DR programs
• Visibility into energy consumption trends
• More reliable electricity for your community
• Improved resilience
• Corporate citizenship and sustainability
• Boosted circularity
