Industrial companies can use load management to increase the share of renewable energy sources in their long-term energy consumption. When electricity prices are low, the supply of renewable energy is usually high. If industrial companies increase their production during these times, they not only save money but also improve their greenhouse gas balance. Conversely, this helps to reduce production in times of scarce power supply and high prices. This helps companies to rely less on fossil-based grid electricity. Appropriate regulatory and economic conditions are important to exploit flexibility potential.
