The technology automatically adjusts power consumption

Tarmac is rolling out the installation of intelligent demand response technology to 70 Asphalt plants and over 200 bitumen tanks at sites across the UK. The technology automatically adjusts power consumption to help manage fluctuations in electricity supply and demand. There are future plans to extend the roll out to other assets.

“As an industry leader, our construction solutions are used in infrastructure projects across the UK. As such, it’s vital that we manage our business operations in a way that contributes to its overall sustainability and supports delivery of a more flexible, lower carbon electricity grid. Our partnership with the Living Grid allows us to harness innovative demand-side technology and share our learnings to drive collective action within our sector.”
