Non-Inverter-Based Distributed Energy Resource for Use in a Dynamic Distribution SystemType:ProductTechnology:
Background: Distributed energy resources (DER) the combination of distributed power generators energy storage devices and renewable sources of energy are frequently located at customer sites where the energy resources are used. Small DER offer a promising alternative to meet the rapidly growing demand for more reliable power. When power demands spike individual DER units may respond by providing more energy to the system but may also cause problems with other DER units.
Programmable Communicating Thermostat Control SoftwareType:Product
Background: Controlling electricity utilization on utility grids is a major opportunity for reducing energy usage across large regions. This control is especially valuable when used to minimize peak energy demand. Air conditioning cooling systems in residential retail and commercial facilities are a large source of peak energy usage and therefore intelligently monitoring and controlling these AC systems would enable utilities and their customers to better manage energy demand during peak energy periods.
