**Load Demand**for all your devices, it compares it with the contracted load and it indicates the possible load

**excess penalties**.

We remind you that the Load Demand is the average of the interval loads for an specific period of time. This period will vary depending on the sample frequency used by your Country. Examples:

**Spain**: sampling each 15 minutes, so the load demand represents the average load into 15 minutes. Is the result of multiplying the 15 min energy by 4.**France**: sampling each 10 minutes, so the load demand represents the average load into 10 minutes. Is the result of multiplying the 10 min energy by 6.**England**: sampling each 30 minutes, so the load demand represents the average load into 30 minutes. Is the result of multiplying the 30 min energy by 2.

## Getting Started

In order to visualize in a detailed way the Load Demand from our facility, to know what penalties and costs will be assumed in our bill, we must have configured and assigned a supply to our location.

**Devices**: device I want to analyze the Demand load**Dates**: reference dates for the period I want to analyze**Contract name**: name of the contract associated to the device previously selected. If the device has not any contract associated, this field will be empty**Analysis**: Demand Load chart- The Demand Load graph will appear in a grey color. The sample frequency will be given by the country selected on the contract
- The dashed blue line indicated the contracted load
**by periods**. - The excess loads will appear in orange

**Export data in Excel**: we can download the readings in Excel just clicking on the button below the graph

## Results

Below the Load Demand graph, we will find a summary table with the breakdown by periods of the contracted load, the excess load and how much it represents in Cost terms in our bill

The summary table will be given by the billing strategy previously selected.Thus, the calculation of penalties depend on how it is structured our rate.
