Green option is chosen by National Grid for Short Term Operating Reserve.
Energy technology company REstore has been selected to sell emergency power, known as committed Short Term Operating Reserve, to National Grid. Whenever power demand threatens to outstrip power supply, National Grid calls upon companies such as REstore to rebalance the grid in real-time. However, unlike incumbent providers of emergency power, REstore balances the grid by managing pure demand, instead of relying on back-up from diesel generators. This disruptive model is a greener, more cost-efficient approach to energy management.
