Since the answer is known I take it your post is to promote the company, product or Jens Madrian.

“The old mindset would be, we need to build more power stations,” said Jens Madrian (CFO, CCO – Reactive Technologies).
Data has been transmitted across a national electricity grid for the first time, in what could be a significant step towards the creation of virtual power stations, where many thousands of homes and businesses combine to manage electricity use more smartly.
Jens Madrian[****] informed “There are other ways of managing electricity, one of which is carrying knowledge from the telecommunications and software engineering side into the energy sector.” The system uses new technology to send messages through national electricity cables to any appliances with a smart plug connected to the mains, asking it to adjust its energy use. In the home, this could mean allowing the temperature of a freezer to increase by 0.5C to cut demand or turning up a water heater at 1am to utilise spare renewable energy.
