Maximize Power Grid by Balancing Energy Generated
- Platform as a Service (PaaS) - Device Management Platforms
- Sensors - Utility Meters
- Facility Management
- Building Energy Management
Steffes Corp. wanted to transform individual space and water heaters into fast-response energy storage groups. Utilities can command this system of groups as a grid stabilization tool to address the problem of damaging power fluctuations created by highly variable and unpredictable renewable energy sources.
Steffes partnered with Mesh Systems to design and deploy an IoT Smart Energy application that connects each space or water heater in order to control them as groups. Built on the MESHVista IoT platform, the Smart Energy system, GETS, combines unit metering, standard load management and proprietary smart grid technology to provide an extremely fast response system while doing so very cost effectively.
