How will Beat the Peak Commercial Daily work? 

  • The initiative is designed so that commercial electricity users can get paid to adopt energy efficiency measures and reduce electricity demand between  4:30 pm – 9 pm or part thereof on business days (Monday - Friday) as often as possible for the duration of Beat the Peak Commercial Daily. 
  • Commercial electricity users wishing to participate and who meet the eligibility criteria can either apply through a specialised energy management company (e.g., an aggregator) to become a Service Asset, or can apply directly with ESB Networks to become a Service Provider if they operate their own metered site with a Meter Point Reference Number (MPRN) that meets the eligibility criteria.
  • For those applicants whose application is successful and are subsequently contracted as a Beat the Peak Commercial Daily Service Provider or Service Asset, a baseline electricity demand profile will be set for each Service Asset (i.e., MPRN). This will be based on historical demand data from 2022 and will provide a basis to compare electricity reduction against during the operation of Beat the Peak Commercial Daily.
  • After each Beat the Peak Commercial Daily Event, each Service Provider’s Service Assets’ electricity demand during that period will be compared against their baseline, and for any reduction achieved relative to their baseline, Service Assets will receive a €0.22 per reduced kWh payment. At the end of the initiative Service Assets will receive a bonus payment dependent on their overall average performance for the duration of the initiative.
  • Service Providers participating in Beat the Peak Commercial Daily, will receive a payment for each Service Asset recruited and a payment dependent on the performance of their Service Assets.
  • Payment to Service Assets and Service Providers will be processed to the contracted Service Provider.
  • Please note that qualification for Beat the Peak Commercial Daily until the end of September 2023 will not mean automatic qualification for any subsequent periods.   
  • ESB Networks does not operate an approved or recommended list of specialised energy management companies or aggregators.
