Presented at Signs of Change National e-Conference, 15-16 November 2010, NEW ZEALAND

Energy Response is the leading aggregator in the New Zealand market. We have introduced in
2010 new smart grid technology to bring mid-sized industrial and commercial loads into the IL
market for the first time. These loads include refrigeration in meat plants, cold stores, water
pumping, effluent treatment and many other industrial operations that can be easily shutdown.
Energy Response's aggregated offer has a faster response (less than 1 second), more diversity
across many grid exit points and high reliability than present reserves.
The scale is serious at 100MW of new reserves which will certainly have an impact on
improving security of supply in the North Island.
This is an example of change that is taking our grid towards a more sustainable future and
getting the supply-side dominated industry to think differently. This is just the start in our
roadmap towards a more robust grid that can balance a much wider range of renewable
generation with export industries taking advantage of this generation to lower carbon footprints.
