AutoGrid: Harnessing Flexibility to Deliver Cheap, Clean, Reliable Energy

“Today’s energy system is becoming a distributed Energy Internet. To succeed in this new energy world, where both supply and demand are unpredictable and potentially out of your control, the key to balance is harnessing data to flex with the ebb and flow of energy.

By coordinating the operations of millions of connected energy assets such as smart thermostats, battery storage systems and distributed generation sources, AutoGrid’s flexibility management software uses data to turn these assets into a reliable grid-balancing resource, ensuring an Energy Internet that is not only clean, but also reliable.”

MCE (Marin Clean Energy)

MCE, a community choice electricity provider servicing about 250,000 customers throughout the Bay Area, is using AutoGrid Flex™ flexibility management software application suite for its demand response (DR) program, My Energy Insight. Listen as MCE leaders discuss how the organization is partnering with AutoGrid to support its vision of providing sustainable energy.

Winning in the Distributed Energy World: AutoGrid Customers and Partners Speak

Hear from AutoGrid customers and partners about how AutoGrid’s Energy Internet applications are enabling them to win in the new world of distributed energy, and to provide clean, affordable, reliable power to all.

E.ON

Operating in over 30 countries and one of the top energy suppliers in Europe, E.ON is undergoing major transformations. The company is transitioning from a centralized system to a cascade of microgrids, from single to multiple supply chains, and from a commodity-centric to a customer- and service-centric business model. To become a digital utility of the future, E.ON is working with AutoGrid to predict the future and make actionable decisions.

Florida Power & Light Company (FPL)

Florida Power & Light Company (FPL), the third-largest electric utility in the United States, is using AutoGrid’s platform for predictive intelligence to ensure a more reliable, resilient grid infrastructure in Florida, where rapid tree growth frequently interferes with power lines and hurricanes are seasonal events. Powered by AutoGrid’s Predictive Controls™ technology, the system uses the big data from smart grid devices, in combination with other data sources, to detect and prevent problems on the grid before they occur.

Amit Narayan, CEO & founder, AutoGrid discusses “Finding business value from energy analytics” at the EEAP Spring Conference in May 2014.

Amit Narayan | Data-Driven Smart Power Grids

“There’s no better technological innovation than the electricity grid,” says Amit Narayan, CEO of Autogrid, “It works so well we haven’t made any changes for the last few decades.” Dr. Narayan tells how advanced analytics can make the grid smart, and bring affordable and sustainable power to everyone.

City of Palo Alto Utilities (CPAU)

CPAU has been using AutoGrid’s Demand Respond Optimization & Management System (DROMS) to help large, industrial customers shed power. The DROMS application has allowed CPAU to shed an average of 1.2 megawatts of peak demand, saving 3.5 megawatt hours of electricity, per event. CPAU’s rapid installation of DROMS software and the platform’s growth, with the success of their DR program, demonstrates the ease of implementation and scalability of the system.

CLEAResult

CLEAResult helps utilities, businesses and individuals make wise use of energy a way of life. Headquartered in Austin, Texas, with offices in more than 80 cities in the U.S. and Canada, CLEAResult designs, markets, and implements energy programs around the globe. CLEAResult has teamed up with AutoGrid to offer BDR and BYOT programs to utilities across North America.

Schneider Electric

Schneider is integrating AutoGrid’s EIP into its Wiser™ home management system, a comprehensive solution that connects utilities and consumers, enabling homeowners to better control energy consumption. Wiser Powered by AutoGrid will allow utilities to reduce peak power, curb emissions, and improve energy productivity to effectively utilize more of the electricity that is generated on the grid by enabling users to have a closer connection to their energy information.

NTT Data

NTT DATA, the fifth largest IT services company in the world, serving Fortune 1000 companies, has teamed up with AutoGrid to co-develop an app on EIP called Energy Cost Optimizer (or ECO).

Lawrence Berkeley National Lab (LBNL)

LBNL and AutoGrid have had a close relationship since AutoGrid’s inception. The California Energy Commission (CEC) awarded a $1.2 million grant to demonstrate a system for DR optimization to AutoGrid and LBNL in conjunction with U.C. Berkeley and Stanford University. In total, 13 scientists associated with Berkeley Lab have won the Nobel Prize, and 57 LBNL scientists are members of the National Academy of Sciences (NAS), one of the highest honors for a scientist in the United States. Mary Ann Piette, featured in this video was one of the pioneers of DR. She and Silla Kiliccote, also featured, developed the OpenADR Standard.

Silver Spring Networks

Silver Spring Networks, a leading networking platform and solutions provider for smart energy networks speaks about their strategic partnership with AutoGrid. The two enterprises are jointly developing the Silver Spring UtilityIQ™ Demand Optimizer solution, powered by AutoGrid’s DROMS application, to enable utilities, grid operators, service providers, and large power consumers to quickly, securely, and cost-effectively implement traditional and advanced DR and demand-side management (DSM) programs.
