The integration of British Gas PeakSave in Great Britain with SmartThings Energy’s Auto DR auto demand response feature is one of the main results of their partnership. Customers of British Gas are rewarded by PeakSave for changing their electricity usage at times when there is a great demand for it. Through SmartThings Energy’s support for Auto DR, which immediately modifies appliances operating modes when an event is triggered, customers can benefit from the program. Customers can then profit from using less electricity while watching the events.

SmartThings Energy’s Auto DR and British Gas Collaboration for Net Zero Homes

Depending on the type of appliance, there are a few different ways to activate SmartThings Energy’s Auto DR feature. To reduce additional energy use in the supported appliances, SmartThings Energy can initially automatically activate the Artificial energy mode. Second, by turning off their appliances when necessary, users can use less energy thanks to the power-off feature. This includes specific plugs and lights from outside sources.

Lastly, bright temperature adjustment for EHS heatpump products and third-party thermostats can result in savings.
When a top event is triggered, the application sends alerts, allowing users to take action in their unique ways to save energy when they are notified. This is helpful for users who do not own Auto DR-compatible appliances.

Samsung has now expanded its DR service in a number of different areas, including Seoul, California, and New York, in 2023 in addition to Great Britain. As it looks to expand the service globally, Samsung intends to look into additional partnerships and continue to offer multifaceted programs that support the net-zero home. New accomplishments in this area include the Southern Company project unveiled at this month’s CES in Las Vegas and the energy-efficient residential community in Brobyholm, Sweden, which was announced in November 2023.
