About ENBALA Power Networks

ENBALA Power Networks operates a real-time, demand management platform (called GOFlex™) that offers a way to connect electricity users to the grid to perform non-disruptive demand response by intelligently aggregating the inherent flexibility in how they consume power. Participating customers define their own parameters based on their own usage and process requirements. ENBALA's platform optimizes the usage of this flexibility, based on real-time telemetry and the grid's moment-to-moment needs. The net effect is a virtual, distributed energy resource that can be continuously controlled by the utility - with no business impact on customers. For more information, visit www.enbala.com.
