Advances in communication technology and the cost-value ratio of hardware and deployment is raising the opportunity to deliver new services to large energy customers.
By reaching behind the meter, utilities and energy services companies can offer a way to connect any customer asset that stores, generates, consumes or measures power.
Think of a large manufacturer wanting to take part in a utility demand response scheme in exchange for a preferential tariff - an Energy Network of Things platform is the enabler to make this happen.
In another use case, a hospital or university campus are keen to create a microgrid to give them autonomy from the main grid in case of extreme weather or adverse events. Again, by using a single platform to connect distributed energy resources (DER), the utility is able to help the customer with microgrid monitoring and control.
This webinar will not only unpack the different use cases of connecting behind-the-meter assets, but also look at how these types of deployments are possible.
We are joined by two experienced companies in the field. Communication technology company MultiTech is an expert at delivering the right connectivity solutions to match the application and business case.
MultiTech’s ecoystem partner US-based Blue Pillar will also present. Blue Pillar offers an Energy Network of Things platform for connecting DER, a solution developed from a background of supporting commercial and industrial users with back-up power technology.
Register for this webinar and you will learn:
- Use cases of a behind the meter platform, from demand response to microgrids
- How to connect your customers’ distributed energy resources
- What types of devices can be connected
- Details of a UK proof of concept
