This technology company wanted to create an offering to manage demand response programs to pay participants to reduce electricity use during peak hours. But program details varied greatly between regional utility authorities. Our client posed the question: how do they build out technology and capabilities to support all demand response programs?
We started by collecting program details for all existing and planned North American demand response programs. We also collected and analyzed relevant legislation and trend information in this area.
We developed a modular design of capabilities to support all programs. We developed a normalized framework for capturing and integrating electricity consumption (meter) data, and a technical architecture for scaling data capture, application hosting, and analytics via Amazon Web Services (AWS).
