For commercial and industrial building owners, energy storage promises to lower utility bills, improve power quality and reliability, decrease carbon footprints, simplify the integration of onsite renewable solar and wind generation, and add electric vehicle charging stations. In effect, intelligent energy storage helps give any organization control over its energy destiny.
For utilities, energy storage makes it possible to integrate more generation from intermittent renewable sources, mitigate peaks and valleys in demand curves, reduce stress on the transmission and distribution infrastructure, and accommodate growth in electric vehicles — all while enhancing the grid's stability.
Demand Energy's Joule.System™ provides what distributed energy storage has long been missing: the intelligence, big data analytics and simplicity of management needed to deliver these and other benefits, and by doing so, to revolutionize the way electricity is generated and consumed.
As a fault tolerant, cloud-based platform, Joule.System gives users the analytics and control needed to continuously optimize how they purchase, generate and consume electricity. Renewables become less intermittent and truly dispatchable. Microgrids and virtual power plants become smarter, more efficient and more cost-effective. Smart buildings become fully intelligent, which helps raise the IQ of the smart grid. And the promising future of intelligent and autonomous energy management becomes practical reality today.
