False Peaks and Double Peaks are just two types of system Peaks, there are actually six. We break them down and describe each of the six types.

Just as how no two mountain peaks are the same, neither are two electrical system Peaks exactly the same. Fortunately, there are models and landmarks to help explorers of both kinds of peaks. At EnPowered we’ve identified six types of Peaks.

For those of you looking to make sense of Peaks and energy markets, it is important to familiarize yourself with the types of Peaks, not only to better understand how to respond, but also to make sense of the information being provided by service providers, peak prediction services, or energy consultants. Let’s outline a quick introduction to the six types of Peaks you’ll encounter.


Lastly, if these different types of Peaks seem confusing, don’t worry; get EnPowered or let your service provider worry about these differences instead.

Understand that any Peak Prediction software or service provider should be clear and straightforward, informing you in a Yes or No manner whether to respond to a predicted Peak or not.

You want to be confident in your Peak responses and limit the number of times your business does decide to response. Be wary of consultants that don’t provide firm answers or offer clients a probability range in lieu of firm predictions. Understanding these peaks is a great first step, but at the end of the day accuracy is key to your Peak confidence.
