Demand Energy's Joule.System™ is a turn-key solution that provides the intelligence, big data analytics and network architecture required to maximize the benefits of distributed energy storage. As a cloud-based platform, Joule.System centralizes and tightly integrates all of the functions needed to aggregate and manage distributed energy storage resources independently of their location, capacity or ownership.
Joule.System goes well beyond the basic requirements of managing an AC/DC and DC/AC power conversion system and rechargeable batteries by integrating support for building management systems, energy markets, metering systems, and other energy assets under Demand Energy's next-generation Grid.DNA Distributed Network Architecture. Sophisticated analytics and automated decision-making are applied in real-time to the large-scale data store that continuously tracks energy demand, system status and market information to minimize costs without compromising power quality or reliability.
The browser-based graphical user interface provides an intuitive and convenient way for users to configure the system and monitor its operation. Behind the user interface is a powerful architecture that integrates the data store with device control, back office systems, business logic and security services utilizing a distributed messaging system. The result is an unprecedented degree of control over energy that is capable of adapting to future advances in battery chemistries, power conversion technologies and big data analytics.
The Joule.System continuously reacts to energy market rate structures, storing energy when time-of-use rates are low, and generating electricity during peak periods to offset costly demand charges and/or reduce load during a demand response event. Joule.System also makes it easier to integrate both large- and small-scale renewable energy generation, potentially in a microgrid or as a virtual power plant, and provides a dependable source of back-up power during a grid outage, complete with "dark start" and support for critical loads.
Joule.System includes a family of turn-key, modular and scalable energy storage and generation systems that integrate a range of advanced battery technologies with significant innovations in power conversion, battery management and operational software. By combining state-of-the-art power conversion, energy storage and intelligent control in a single package, Joule.System is able to charge, retain and generate energy to optimize usage and maximize cost savings under a variety of use cases and utility rate structures.
