Generation & Energy Optimization – aka GEO – programs for clients that have their own generation assets are designed to get energy that is surplus to the client’s needs into the market. These programs come in two flavors. GEO Basic is for owners of on-site generation facilities such as solar panels, battery storage or combined heat and power assets. Enel X sees to the sale of the surplus and its energy trading expertise ensures it realizes the best price. GEO Advanced, for owners of combined heat and power facilities, or CHP, uses artificial intelligence to slash the customer’s overall energy expenditure through smarter use and lower costs. Generator upgrade plans allow customers to smoothly reduce demands on the grid without cutting their own energy consumption by taking advantage of the flexibility their on-site assets offer when it makes financial and operational sense to do so. Enel X checks that the equipment will perform when needed and that it meets the standards required to participate in demand response. If it falls short of those requirements, Enel X can finance and implement the upgrades needed to make good the shortfall.
