Itron Solution to Optimize Management of Distributed Energy Resources

LIBERTY LAKE, Wash. — Nov. 14, 2018 — Itron, Inc. (NASDAQ: ITRI), which is innovating the way utilities and cities manage energy and water, will collaborate with Alternative Energy Systems Consulting (AESC) and other companies in a project funded by California Energy Commission. Itron will be a leading technology provider in a project to manage load for customers as part of the Smart Home Study. The project will improve the load shape and minimize customer utility costs for 100 homeowners in southern California.

As the electricity grid changes, an increasing number of customers are installing distributed energy resources (DERs), such as batteries, electric vehicles and solar panels. These resources give customers more control over their energy usage, but also dramatically impact the utility grid. To help customers utilize and better understand their energy control potential, the Smart Home Study project aims to minimize the negative aspects of DERs while still realizing the benefits of these transformative technologies.
