“What is one simple way to provide power to the grid when more energy is needed?”

 

When the grid is not meeting power demand, there are multiple ways to use ancillary services to solve this. One such method is to find generators that are spinning under their maximum output, and then ramping them up to meet demand. This is known as spinning reserves and is a simple way to assist the grid.
