Peak Shaving

In markets where the demand for electricity exceeds the available power generation capacity, utilities need to consider the practicalities of load management and load shedding during peak demand times of the day. In some cases, this need is seasonal, driven by extreme temperatures or, in hydro dependent countries, by lack of rainfall. In a peak shaving solution, APR Energy’s power plant would operate during peak demand periods, normally for only a few hours each day to prevent power outages.
