Two tech companies are joining forces to benefit the power grid and reduce energy costs.
Energy storage system developer Eguana (TSXV:EGT) and cloud-based software-as-a-service (SaaS) company, Virtual Peaker are combining their respective technologies.
This partnership will allow utilities supported by Virtual Peaker’s distributed energy resource management system (DERMS) suite called “Shift” to connect with any internet-connected Eguana energy storage system.
Utilities can enroll, deploy, and manage bring your own device (BYOD) demand response programs through Virtual Peaker’s integrated enrollment management framework.
Virtual Peaker’s Director of Technology Partnerships, Eric Van Orden, commented, “Customers with Eguana storage systems will now have greater access to financial benefits from residential demand response programs, and utilities will have access to new flexible load at a reduced cost.”
Eguana’s Chief Technology Officer, Daljit Ghotra added, “Together, Eguana and Virtual Peaker are able to leverage advanced power systems and dynamic DER management to deliver reliable power and financial incentives to battery owners while supporting utility grid modernization.”
