Calling a demand response event or setting dynamic pricing rates should be a normal part of business operations. Therefore, managers need a system that addresses:
Pricing profiles that may vary by hour, day, month or season
Effectively dispatching load control commands to the right consumers at the right time
Confirming energy reductions against baseline calculations and participation targets
Compiling summary information at any point in time including data on the load resources under management, how they were scheduled and the effectiveness of DR programs in achieving their goals
PowerOn Precision establishes a process-oriented approach aimed at meeting and exceeding these requirements. Whether operating with a day-ahead or a real-time program, the system provides a scheduling and dashboard capability that incorporates load management as a part of everyday operations.
The data requirements for implementing a comprehensive demand response program and managing a variety of assets can be daunting. To be effective, companies must be prepared to address:
Establishing demand response programs or contracts with various tariff, policy or customer restrictions
Tracking customer contracts and the installation of energy management technologies
Maintaining communications with energy management technologies from a variety of vendors
Understanding consumer profiles, location and contact information
PowerOn Precision provides a complete and scalable asset management capability that leverage GE best practices and experience. Based on Common Information Model (CIM) and Smart Energy Profile (SEP) standards, the system connects the data in ways that assist users in actively managing and reporting on programs, consumers and load assets.
