Sempa will provide compensation per MW of regulation capacity. As the calculation is dependent on:
Resource Size Resource Flexibility
A specific per $ per MW quote is not possible however Sempa would be happy to perform a no cost site audit which will allow us to provide a range of value with only a minimal time investment.

System regulation is required to manage the electricity system. Second by second balancing of supply and load (system regulation) is accomplished by adjusting generation.
ENBALA has developed the “ENBALA Power Network” to take advantage of this new opportunity for the regulation market.
The network consists of a variety of resource which on their own would not be able to provide system regulation however when operated in a network Sempa is able to supply high quality regulation to the ISO and provide Hosts with an additional revenue source for an existing asset.
This unique system is able to aggregate and harmonize active networks of geographically dispersed resources so they can be leveraged and subsequently rewarded as an alternative source of Regulation.
The “ENBALA Power Network” Box is actually our Resource Regulation Response Optimization Engine – we call it R3OE. It talks to the ISO control centre – and manages operation of our network…
The R3OE is actually installed and is working at a secure server facility in Chicago.
The network may consist of many types of resources… EFW, Pumps, Chillers, Aeration, grinders, … Any large electrical load with capability to change state in response to regulation control signals may be a candidate.
We are supplying virtual power plants to electricity system operators, allowing them to far more effectively manage the real time requirements of the electricity system. We are doing it by building the ENBALA Power Network.
In this demonstration the R3OE is controlling a real 1MW boiler and several other resources at our offices
We are currently using a sample ISO control signal – however the entire communications infrastructure is in place – and is working…
Historically, grid operators were relying that supply has been dependable and quite adjustable and predictable. While load has been the opposite-unpredictable and erratic and hard to control and forecast. With the addition of renewables, demand and supply are reversing their roles. Supply is becoming erratic, unpredictable and intermittent. In order for us to respond to that, we need to find away for the demand side to be the intelligent enough to compensate for the supply’s erratic nature. Hence the need for Regulation Service
-agc will be sent to dedicated for providing regulations.
Generation dispatch to provide energy on the grid.-natural gas and hydro. Flexible generation providers and most of the time go up and down.
