EnergyAustralia and VIOTAS delivering FCAS demand response services

Having recently joined the Australian Demand Response market, VIOTAS is excited to join forces with EnergyAustralia. This new partnership gives EnergyAustralia’s Commercial and Industrial customers access to VIOTAS cutting-edge technologies and platform, enabling them to participate in the Frequency Controlled Ancillary Services (FCAS) markets. By participating in these markets, grid frequency can be balanced for AEMO by providing fast injections or reductions of energy.

We’re delighted to be partnering with VIOTAS and providing our customers with access to their industry leading technology as we look to provide value-stacking options to our customers, coupled to leading and accelerating the clean energy transition for all.

Vaughan Furniss,
Head of Commercial & Industrial, EnergyAustralia

The VIOTAS team are passionate about enabling a low carbon future through building the most advanced smart grid technologies. Our dedicated research and development team, VIOTAS Innovation, develops leading-edge technologies to empower our customers to earn revenue and help balance the use of renewable energy in the grid.

These technologies enable commercial or industrial businesses to actively support the security and stability of national electricity grids.  By becoming active participants in the power system, EnergyAustralia’s customers are rewarded by earning revenue which can offset the ancillary services pass-through charge they receive in their electricity invoice each month. As they are playing a key role in accelerating the greater use of renewable energy in their markets, they are also helping to reduce their own carbon impact.

This is a win/win arrangement whereby EnergyAustralia customers can earn significant revenue from the electricity market and EnergyAustralia gets to add value for these customers by leveraging VIOTAS’ amazing technology and industry expertise.

Managing Director, VIOTAS Australia
