Vedero is necessary to respond quickly to Grid signals without human intervention.
Plano, TX / Houston, TX (PRWEB) September 06, 2011
Vedero Software, a leading provider of software solutions for automated demand response, and Energy Edge Consulting LLC, leading providers of consulting and advisory services to commercial consumers of energy, today announced a partnership delivering an automated demand response solution to commercial customers in North America.
Demand response programs compensate participants for their willingness to reduce electricity consumption at key times such as when the threat of blackouts looms due to lack of supply to meet demand. Commercial buildings including office complexes, hospitals, schools, universities, and data centers consume more than 40% of the electricity in North America, and the operators that manage these buildings are keenly interested in participating in demand response programs. However, curtailing electricity must be balanced to accommodate the needs of the building occupants. Vedero Software meets the emerging critical requirement of providing a robust platform that ensures maximization of demand response events, while maintaining occupant comfort. Energy Edge Consulting and Vedero are teaming to offer the Vedero Software Solution to commercial accounts.
“The intelligent automation provided by Vedero is necessary to respond quickly to Grid signals without human intervention,” said Matt Hobson, Principal of Energy Edge Consulting. “Automated Demand Response is yet another way Energy Edge can add value to our commercial clients.”
There are numerous opportunities for end use consumers to lower energy costs and further an overall corporate sustainability strategy through participation in demand response and energy efficiency programs. The Automated Demand Response solution offered through this partnership delivers the following:
- Qualitative and quantitative analysis of the various demand response & energy efficiency programs available and the financial value and risks of each
- Assistance to clients in understanding business implications of participating in certain programs
- Assistance to clients in selecting and managing third party equipment purchases, installations, and ongoing service provider relationships
- Automated response to emergency and economic demand response events through pre-planned curtailment scenarios using Vedero Software
“We are excited to be teaming with Energy Edge to generate revenue and cost savings for our mutual clients,” said Joe Pollard, CEO and Co-Founder, Vedero Software. The team at Energy Edge has an impressive knowledge base of the energy space and we are proud to associate with them.”
