Peak Control

Peak Control benefits from the smart control algorithm, but instead of optimizing the indoor temperature, it analyzes when power peaks can occur and works to reduce these – always with the least possible impact on the indoor climate.

The power cost is a part of the billing models that account for a big share of the total annual cost. The power cost mainly impacts those buildings where the need is uneven, especially if there are times of the day when the power demand is high for a short time.

These power costs can account for up to half of the total heating cost.

Benefits

Reduce peak heat loads

Our Peak Control works to reduce power loads by balancing the heat in your building in advance. This is done by proactively adding heat before a peak and avoiding energy use during the expensive peaks in the distribution. 

Easy to implement

No new hardware is needed. No expensive and time-consuming re-programming of heating stations. Peak Control is a further development and an addition to our climate-optimized control. The data about how buildings are affected and react to different heating needs and weather conditions set the standard for avoiding power peaks. 

Scalable and flexible

Edge's Peak Control can easily be activated on specific buildings or your entire building portfolio. Our energy experts and operations team is on the line and will ensure that you are up and running in no time.

How it works

Applied to the following power charging models for district heating

Daily

Daily average effect

With the help of building and weather data, the control will predict which days will have a high power output, cut the peaks, and even out the power output.

Hourly

Hourly average effect

Where the highest hourly sub-effects instead determine the power rate, account must be taken of when during the day the power peaks occur. The system comes with data-driven knowledge and will redistribute the heat to reduce the peaks.

Subscribed effect

If a subscribed power, a limit is set, and if it is exceeded, you will get increased power costs or a significant penalty fee. Here, the system will instead reduce the energy requirement in order not to surpass the subscribed power level.
