Enel Achieves Largest Demand Response Market Share in Ireland With Over 200 MW Won in Country’s First Capacity Auction

Enel Achieves Largest Demand Response Market Share in Ireland With Over 200 MW Won in Country’s First Capacity Auction Press Release from GlobeNewsWire has been published today, Karol Rutkowski, .

With the awarded capacity, Enel will hold 40% of the total demand response market in IrelandROME and BOSTON, Jan. 30, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Enel’s new advanced energy services division Enel X, through its US demand response services company EnerNOC, Inc., was awarded the delivery of 217 MW of demand response resources following the completion of Ireland’s first capacity market auction launched by the Transmission System Operators1 (TSOs) of Ireland and Northern Ireland.As a result of this award, Enel will hold 40% of the overall demand response market in Ireland. The total size of Enel’s virtual power plant in the Irish market is expected to grow by 60% year-over-year to the awarded 217 MW, from the current 136 MW, when the new capacity market starts at the end of May 2018.Through the award, Enel will manage electricity demand from large industrial and commercial customers connected to the Irish transmission grid, informing those companies when the network needs them to reduce or increase their power consumption, with the aim to enhance grid stability.We are thrilled to secure the largest demand response market position in Ireland’s first-ever capacity auction,” said Francesco Venturini, Head of Enel X. “This market is going through a rapid transformation while adapting to  the EU electricity system and our strong track record of delivering a wide variety of demand response products and grid services puts us in a unique position to help our Irish customers address this change and secure the most value from their participation in the demand response programme.”Demand response programmes are set up to pay large energy consumers, such as manufacturing facilities, data centres, and commercial real estate companies, to adjust their energy consumption by either reducing or increasing their power consumption, with the aim to stabilise the grid. Demand response provides greater grid flexibility, stability, and more efficient use of power infrastructure, with a view to help maintain electricity prices as low as possible for all consumers. This demand response programme pays users year round for being on standby ready to respond in the event of a grid emergency, as well as providing incremental payments if and when they are dispatched.This recent tender is Ireland’s first capacity market auction, although demand response programmes were already in place in the country, with Enel already managing demand response capacity through EnerNOC. The capacity market was launched in response to the EU Target Model for Electricity Integration, which is designed to integrate the electricity market of Ireland and the rest of Europe under a new wholesale market arrangement, the Integrated Single Electricity Market (I-SEM). The capacity awarded under the auction will be used on the I-SEM to create more opportunities for dynamic transactions and trading, to facilitate more integration of renewables onto the system, and ultimately, to drive more efficient wholesale electricity pricing across the region. These market changes are expected to benefit the Irish electricity sector as a whole in terms of network stability and revenue generation for customers, while Enel will help its Irish demand response customers maximise the value they can achieve through participating in this new market opportunity.In addition to the launch of the capacity auction, EirGrid also plans to continue to introduce more demand response opportunities to support its effort to deliver 40% of Ireland’s generation from renewable resources.EnerNOC, an Enel Group Company, partners with enterprises to reduce costs, manage risks, increase sustainability, and maximise the value of emerging energy technologies through customised energy management strategies. EnerNOC is the global leader in demand-side flexibility services, providing large energy users access to more demand response and demand management programmes worldwide than any other provider. In addition to its flexibility solutions, EnerNOC’s technology-enabled advisory solutions help large energy users create value through strategic energy procurement, energy management, and utility bill management software as well as services. For more information on how to join EnerNOC’s demand response network and begin earning payments for your flexibility, please visit www.enernoc.com/ireland.Enel X is a new Enel global business line dedicated to developing innovative products and digital solutions in sectors in which energy is showing the greatest potential for transformation: cities, homes, industries and electric mobility.Enel is a multinational power company and a leading integrated player in the global, power, gas and renewables markets.

NOTICE from the Securities Arbitration Law Firm Dimond Kaplan & Rothstein, P.A. to TD Ameritrade Customers with Options Trading Losses with Sheaff Brock Investment Advisors, LLC

NOTICE from the Securities Arbitration Law Firm Dimond Kaplan & Rothstein, P.A. to TD Ameritrade Customers with Options Trading Losses with Sheaff Brock Investment Advisors, LLC Press Release from GlobeNewsWire has been published today, Karol Rutkowski, .

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 30, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The securities arbitration law firm Dimond Kaplan & Rothstein, P.A. (“DKR”) (http://www.dkrpa.com) alerts current and former TD Ameritrade customers of a January 19, 2018 securities class action lawsuit filed against TD Ameritrade under case number 1:18-cv-00419 in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois. The case involves naked put options investment losses that TD Ameritrade customers suffered. The TD Ameritrade customers used the investment advisory services of Sheaff Brock Investment Advisor, LLC through TD Ameritrade’s AdvisorDirect program and suffered losses in a risky put income options strategy.
Investors Should Consider Filing an Individual FINRA Arbitration Claim
Investors should consider whether to participate in the class action or file an individual FINRA securities arbitration claim. DKR reminds current and former TD Ameritrade customers that investors in securities class action lawsuits often recover only nominal amounts, whereas investors who lost more than $100,000 may benefit more by filing their own case as an individual FINRA securities arbitration claim. Individual FINRA arbitration cases are handled as private proceedings, rather than through the public court system. Such cases must be brought timely or you may be prohibited from pursuing your claims.
TD Ameritrade AdvisorDirect Program
TD Ameritrade introduces customers to third-party investment advisors through its AdvisorDirect program. If a customer enters the program, TD Ameritrade receives a solicitation fee and 25% of the investment advisor’s ongoing investment management fee. TD Ameritrade also collects commissions for all trades that the investment advisor makes in the customer’s TD Ameritrade account. These revenue streams incentivize TD Ameritrade to recommend its AdvisorDirect program to customers.
Many options strategies, including the put income options strategy that is the subject of the class action, are extremely risky and are suitable only for investors who are willing to speculate with their money. The strategy involved selling naked puts, which is among the riskiest forms of options trading. Notwithstanding the risk, Sheaff Brock and TD Ameritrade appear to have represented that the put income strategy was conservative.TD Ameritrade offices, including those located in Beverly Hills, CA, Chicago, IL, Salt Lake City, UT, Fort Worth, TX, Harrisburg, PA, and Vicksburg, MS are believed to have recommended that customers invest in risky options through investment advisor Sheaff Brock.  FINRA rules required the recommendations to be suitable for the individual customers.  But many TD Ameritrade customers have complained that the recommended options strategies involved far more risk than the customers were willing to take.Dimond Kaplan & Rothstein Represents TD Ameritrade Customers 
Dimond Kaplan & Rothstein currently represents TD Ameritrade customers who suffered options investment losses with Sheaff Brock. http://www.dkrpa.com/td-ameritrade-sheaff-brock-stock-options-losses/ DKR’s clients used Sheaff Brock’s investment advisory services through TD Ameritrade’s AdvisorDirect program at TD Ameritrade’s recommendation.
