IPKeys is unveiling a new cloud-based system this week aimed at helping energy providers exchange market-based demand response and price signals with customers.
The company said its engineers are presenting the Energy Interop Server and System this week at the DistribuTECH 2013 Conference in San Diego.
EISS uses a software-as-a-service platform intended to monitor load and provide customers information on demand response events, reception of event confirmation and verification signals.
Communication between vendor and customer occurs both over the Internet and on any Internet Protocol-based network, the company said.
IPKeys said it based its system off Energy Interop, a new open standard developed for the company’s national smart grid effort aimed at promoting interoperability between energy providers and consumers.
Engineers are demonstrating the virtual top node server and virtual end node hardware at Booth 454 and at the “Utility + C&I Customer Energy Integration” kiosk within Schneider Electric’s Booth 3015.
