Navigant Publishes Demand Side Management Overview Report

Navigant Publishes 'Market Data: Demand Response for C&I'

This Navigant Research report provides a high level examination of the global DSM market in five major geographic regions: North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa. The study provides an analysis of market trends, including the drivers and barriers associated with global DSM development. Global market forecasts for electric DSM capacity, sites, and spending are segmented by region and extend through 2028. The report also examines technology issues and key industry players.

New distributed energy resource technologies and changing customer expectations have created opportunities for growth in the demand side management (DSM) market. Demand response (DR) and energy efficiency programs are an important component in meeting changing regulatory requirements, supporting distributed generation, and delivering new business models and revenue streams. Between 2019 and 2028, Navigant Research expects market growth of DR and energy efficiency programs worldwide; integrated DSM will also generate operational and capital savings for program providers in more mature markets.

Growth in DSM is expected to take place in all regions of the world, with deeper savings in mature markets and new market share in regions with less program penetration. The integration of more intermittent renewables in specific regions is anticipated to look to DSM programs to provide local peak management and load shifting capabilities to the grid. Developments in more efficient, intelligent hardware and program management software are expected to offer streams of data that can be used to optimize both commercial and industrial (C&I) and residential energy ecosystems. Edge computing and data analytics will speed rates of actionable insights for program providers.

Honeywell LogoHoneywell launching new hardware and software features all poised to drive a more holistic, yet surgical, approach to enterprise class demand response and distributed energy resource programs.

GOLDEN VALLEY, Minnesota, May 13th, 2019 – Honeywell (NYSE: HON) announced it has launched an innovative deployment model and several corresponding feature capabilities to support a more demanding grid.

Honeywell’s DemandSites energy asset management platform is now deployable as an outcome-based, modular solution giving utilities more granular control over their IT/OT environments. Under this approach, Honeywell evaluates the utility’s current systems and capabilities, defines the intended outcomes, and only deploys as much or as little automation required to reach a desired outcome. This allows utilities to better leverage and improve legacy applications to economically fill technology gaps without necessarily disrupting current business processes.

“Our clients often have explicit needs to address and are led to believe they need to buy a specific piece of software with a specific acronym to achieve their goals.” says Jamie Coffel, Global Product Manager with Honeywell Smart Energy. “They are often surprised to find that we can augment their existing systems to achieve their Demand Response or Distributed Energy program goals. We can save them money in both the short and long terms”.

Honeywell Internal New modular additions to the DemandSites platform include:

  • Virtual Power Plant (VPP) – Enables connected loads and resources to be more intelligently managed during an event to provide a stable, defined capacity commitment.
  • DR over AMI – DemandSites will now support traditional DR applications via Honeywell AMI networks and the new EdgeControl node (ECN) load control transceiver.
  • Fast Frequency Response (FFR) – The quick, reliable response to grid frequency deviations attributed to systems with a high penetration of renewable energy. Distributed premise-level intelligence for ultra-fast control and centralized program management.
  • Transactive Energy (TE) – Incentivizes end users to reduce, consume, or produce energy based on published pricing for defined intervals throughout the defined time period.
  • EdgeControl Node (ECN) – A customizable load control switch supporting grid-edge apps and numerous communications channels from AMI networks to LTE-M/NB-IoT with multiband support. Choose from existing form factors or work with our custom development team to create your own, utility specific device at your price point.

Tantalus Load Management Solution Portfolio Expands with Addition of 4-relay Load Control Switch

May 01, 2019 10:04 AM Eastern Daylight Time

Tantalus LogoRALEIGH, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Tantalus Systems, a smart grid technology company which helps utilities make smarter decisions through the use of its market-leading edge computing platform, announced today the addition of a new load control switch to its existing product portfolio that features 4 independently-controllable relays. The new model further demonstrates the capability of the Tantalus Utility Network (TUNet®) and its embedded TRUEdge™ computing module to support multiple applications beyond Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI).

The 4-relay load control switch is a compact and cost-effective solution capable of managing residential and commercial electrical loads. The ability to manage 4 different loads independently while tracking event execution through two-way communications allows a utility to effectively target load management and improve the efficiency and resiliency of its electric distribution network while minimizing impact to the utility’s customers. The 4-relay switch will also leverage OptiCycle™, an intelligent cycling feature, which further maximizes load reduction while supporting cold load pick-up and event ramping. The optional event opt-out and recurring scheduling features provide additional tools to support utility demand management, direct load control, energy efficiency and consumer engagement programs.

“Tantalus is already helping our utility cope with the wide variety of installation situations and load configurations we encounter in the field,” said Dan Tepfer, Energy Management/Key Account Representative, Kandiyohi Power Cooperative. “The addition of the 4-relay model provides much more flexibility to efficiently handle even our most challenging sites without additional equipment.”

Tantalus is making its load switch platform available to other AMI and smart grid vendors for integration with their respective communication networks to extend Tantalus’ reach beyond its growing presence in the Municipal and Cooperative utility market.

“Tantalus continues to lead the way in innovative and effective technologies in support of the Municipal and Cooperative utility segment. We are excited to expand our product portfolio in a way that further assists utilities seeking to build a sustainable business model and improve customer service,” said Peter Londa, Tantalus’ CEO. “The 4-relay load control switch demonstrates our continued commitment to deliver solutions that meet the needs of our customers and we are excited to provide access to this new product to the broader utility market through alliances and partnerships.”
