BYME Signs Contract with CLP for Automatic Demand Response Project
CLP is the largest vertically-integrated electricity generation, transmission and distribution company in Hong Kong serving 80% of the territory's population.
One of the key features of the Development Plan for 2014-2018 that CLP submitted to the Government last year is improving the environmental performance of its operations. This can be done on the supply side by reducing emissions, but also on the demand side by conserving electricity consumption.
Hence CLP’s decision to implement an Automatic Demand Response (ADR) system on the demand side; a system whereby CLP can initiate a signal to those commercial and industrial (C&I) customers who have joined the ADR scheme (with incentives put in place by CLP) to reduce the amount of electricity they consume at peak demand periods.
BYME has secured a contract with CLP for Facility Audit & Gateway Installation services for the ADR project.
The scope includes the provision of Facility Audit services, development of load reduction strategies, modification of customers control systems (e.g. BMS, HVAC control system), installation of ADR gateways, connection to Demand Response Management System (DRMS) in CLP station via internet and integration with customer BMS control for demand cut approach.
This contract commenced in September 2014 and is valid up to August 2017 (with an option for two additional years).
Through this project, BYME gains a foothold in the emerging smart grid market in Hong Kong and reinforces its position as a leading energy management services provider.
