Red zone avoidance

What is Red Zone Avoidance?

Red Zone Avoidance provides the ability to take advantage of significant economic savings offered by the UK’s Distribution Network Operator’s (DNO) standardised charging structure for delivering electricity.

The main UK distributors implemented a structure in which the premium charges for electricity significantly rise during allocated ‘peak periods’, generally 16:00-19:30, which varies regionally.

Boss Energy can apply intelligent strategies to shift energy usage from peak periods to periods with lesser charges with backup strategy to ensure we pose no interruption to your working environment and occupants.

We offer bespoke solutions, based on your site assets and environmental requirements. If this service sounds of interest and you would like to discuss further please contact sales@bosscontrols.co.uk

We are experts in market leading BMS/BEMS products Trend, Siemens, Distech, Tridium, Niagara, Forest Rock, Sauter and Dali2, with the ability to provide smart dashboards offering a more holistic view of your building’s health.

Did You Know?

Did you know that around 12% of commercial and industrial electricity charges are from the DUoS (DNO Distribution use of system) rates during the Red Zone time periods?

Customer Demand Management

We design the solution in a way that capitalises on financial savings from managing the electrical/mechanical demand and optimising environmental comfort levels.


Once your strategy is in place, using energy monitoring/benchmark data, we can compare this against the live metering data. This enables us to record changes in the usage profile, which highlights economic savings!
