Honeywell is working with Enel in North America to help stabilise power grids through energy management automation.

This means organisations can help ensure grid stability and increase operational efficiency by automating demand response within their facilities.

The aim is to enhance building automation and demand response for commercial and industrial organisations by using automation to control and regulate energy loads to help stabilise the power grid.

Together, Enel and Honeywell are helping organisations seamlessly integrate demand response programmes into their facilities while simultaneously increasing operational efficiency. By leveraging Enel’s energy portfolio, users can use automated demand response to help prevent blackouts and grid outages in their communities during peak usage periods.

“There is a growing need for energy capacity that can respond on short notice to ensure grid stability,” said Hamed Heyhat, president of Honeywell’s smart energy operation. “Through our partnership with Enel North America, we are addressing these challenges directly by offering customers ready-now options that not only simplify the integration process but also help deliver tangible benefits in terms of efficiency, cost savings and grid reliability.”

This collaboration combines Enel’s expertise in demand response with Honeywell’s automation systems to provide users with an offering that enhances energy efficiency, flexibility and revenue generation potential. It also supports Honeywell’s alignment of its portfolio to three megatrends: automation, the future of aviation and the energy transition.

“The future of energy is flexible,” said Molly Jerrard, head of demand response at Enel North America ( “Our modern power grids need end users who are willing and able to adjust their electricity usage in real time, reducing costs and earning revenue in the process. Enel’s FlexUp offering, powered by Honeywell’s industry-leading automation technology, simplifies the process for organisations that are looking to maximise their energy flexibility. It also enables us to leverage these flexible loads to support grid reliability for homes, businesses and communities.”

As a result of this partnership, organisations across industries, ranging from commercial offices and retail stores to food manufacturing and farming facilities, can automate their facility operations with no out-of-pocket costs, enhancing their demand response earnings potential.
