Demand Side Management
Demand Side Management
Demand-side management (DSM) has a major role to play in deferring high investments in energy generation, transmission and distribution networks. ESTs demand-side management solutions help to manage and control loads from the utility side, and convert unsustainable energy practices into more efficient and sustainable energy use. Benefits include:
- Mitigating electrical system emergencies
- Reducing the number of blackouts and increasing system reliability
- Reducing dependency on expensive imports of fuel
- Reducing energy prices
- Reducing harmful emissions to the environment
Our DSM solutions are applied to fuel/electricity systems and provide significant economic reliability and environmental benefits to energy consumers. Once installed, these applications provide opportunities for reducing energy demand and many are low-cost items that most enterprises or individuals can implement in the short-term.
Our core DSM applications include the following:
Energy Efficient Lighting: In the United States about one-quarter of the electricity budget is spent on lighting, or more than $37 billion annually. In commercial buildings it normally accounts for more than 30% of the total electrical energy consumed. Yet much of this expense can be avoided. READ MORE
GESPER: Uses technology which is designed to eliminate surges and spikes, protect equipment, prevent down line lightning strikes and eliminate harmful harmonic distortion. (Saves 10% – 49% on electric bills) READ MORE
Tankless Water Heaters: Created by NASA, our Tankless Water Heaters incorporate new space age technology and features a faster and more accurate temperature sampling than other tankless systems. READ MORE
Fitch Fuel Catalyst: The Fitch Fuel Catalyst is a heterogeneous metal alloy that transforms gasoline and diesel into a superior quality of fuel, allowing a combustion engine to extract the maximum amount of energy with minimal emissions.
