TRANSACTIVE ENERGY


Renewable energy, new storage technologies and distributed energy resources are now part of the energy mix. This evolution creates instability. The demand at rush hours is increasingly higher compared to the average consumption, requiring the use of costly conventional Energy production assets. METRON is at the cutting edge of this new paradigm called Transactive Energy. We define this concept as a set of economic and control mechanisms to allow a dynamic balance of energy supply and demand, using value as a key operational parameter. Among those mechanisms, METRON solution incorporates natively the following specific applications :

Demand / Response

METRON scans the energy markets to follow eventual changes in pricing, or incentive payments from utilities to induce lower energy use at times of high wholesale market prices or when system reliability is jeopardized.
METRON’s demand/response solution is an essential tool for Energy Managers wanting to adapt their consumption pattern to benefit plainly from those changes or incentives and turn energy into a profit centre.

Energy procurement

METRON provides market based schemes to customers for their energy transactions. We help the customer predicting its consumption and buy the required amount of energy as early as possible at the optimal price. METRON’s energy procurement solution uses a highly innovative set of algorithms to handle real time decision between energy futures and spot price, matching the customer’s desired energy management policy.

PARTNERSHIP


We see Energy Intelligence as a competitive factor enhancing the profitability of manufacturing companies and protecting the environment.
Through our Maturity Model, we are involving all the stakeholders to create Strategic Business Value by enhancing the Energy Intelligence of the company.

SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT


Industrial development is sustainable when all three criteria are met :

  • Production is economically sound, growth-oriented and safeguards the opportunities of future generations.
  • Employment is improved and other social aspects such as social security, equity, occupational health and labor market relations are taken into account.

  • Pollution, waste, environmental health risks and other pressures are minimised while using natural resources effectively and safeguarding natural capital and its productivity.

 

The three pillars are mutually re-enforcing and indispensable, and failure in any one of them will lead to unbalanced non-sustainable development

Sustainable development is fully integrated to other policy areas, which influence industrial development such as trade, competition, energy, transport, taxation, corporate governance, research, education and also environment.
