A small first step towards integrating a very responsive load into an ISO.   This first project is very small but the potential is there for much larger loads.  The response time for this service is seconds so need very quick load response on the demand side.  Unlike most data centers, the cypto miners are completely focused on cost of power, not reliability so they are willing to shed load rapidly as needed when they can be paid for that service.

The Energy Central Power Industry Network is based on one core idea - power industry professionals helping each other and advancing the industry by sharing and learning from each other.

If you have an experience or insight to share or have learned something from a conference or seminar, your peers and colleagues on Energy Central want to hear about it. It's also easy to share a link to an article you've liked or an industry resource that you think would be helpful.
