The stability of the grid depends on utilities’ ability to balance demand and supply in real time. Changes in consumption, the integration of renewables, and more sophisticated control technologies mean utilities can now more actively manage demand. Active load management unifies traditionally siloed utility systems, leveraging information within the transmission and distribution networks to forecast, influence, and optimize grid conditions in near-real time.
OMNETRIC facilitates active load management via a distributed energy resource management system helping utilities leverage existing infrastructure and integrate renewables, back office IT/OT systems, and consumer demand to dynamically balance demand and supply. We also help link these systems to energy markets to influence and optimize power consumption, allowing utilities to see true financial benefits.
