    OSIsoft Launches a Distributed Energy Resources (DER) Collaborative
    January 28, 2020

    San Leandro, CA - OSIsoft, LLC, the leader in operational intelligence and enterprise infrastructure for streaming data, is creating a community centric data ecosystem to enable Distributed Energy Resources (DER) into the marketplace.

    Over the past several years, OSIsoft has introduced new products to help industries around the world deal more effectively with the data streaming from the explosion of IoT sensors. This transformation of the PI System architecture to one that supports a community system of data, while maintaining security, reliability, and ease of interconnection to millions of systems, will provide suppliers, consumers, and service providers, a new way to effectively share and manage data.

    Unlocking the value of data has become increasingly important as markets strive to create transparency and significantly simplify settlement and compliance. The OSIsoft community system approach to data allows a utility to securely interact with grid edge devices, such as batteries, solar inverters, and EV chargers in real time, and create new methods to help support and stabilize the electric grid, while allowing a transaction system to track, settle, and manage compliance with the market. Our real-time data infrastructure is helping to enable this efficient new marketplace by helping to realize the full potential of DER.        

    “OSIsoft is pleased to announce this DER collaborative that will leverage our community system approach to data to bring the future of the digital energy market to life,” said Dr. J. Patrick Kennedy, CEO and Founder of OSIsoft. “Our partners continue to create incredible value to industry and markets around the world by enabling the data streams captured in our system in new and fascinating ways. We are very excited about the potential that DER has to reshape our utility networks. Creating a community data system that allows both the operational and transaction systems access to DERs will rapidly create new value in the energy value chain.”

    OSIsoft and DERNetSoft Announce Partnership to Scale Adoption of Distributed Energy Resources in Cities and Communities
    January 28, 2020

    San Antonio, TX - OSIsoft, LLC, the leader in operational intelligence and enterprise infrastructure for streaming data, and DERNetSoft, Inc. announced their partnership to create and deploy an energy marketplace for cities and communities to scale adoption and integration of Distributed Energy Resources (DER).

    The combination of OSIsoft's community systems approach to data and the DERNetSoft marketplace solution, an AI-based cloud platform, creates a replicable and scalable approach for entire cities and communities to effectively engage with their utilities and DER providers. As a green button certified solution, DERNetSoft also provides a real-time interface for consumers and their providers to optimize their deployed systems and ensure operational effectiveness through detailed analytics and AI toolsets.

    Climate change is transforming the energy market as communities, cities, states, and industries are striving to reduce carbon from the energy sources they utilize. DERs have proven to be effective solutions to help meet these challenges, but the complexity of choosing the right solution at the right scale for customers has been a challenge. The DERNetSoft platform provides the tools to help customers, their communities, and businesses work together to optimize and deploy these solutions. By working with entire communities, DER are delivered at lower costs while helping to improve local grid resilience and energy security.

    The strategic deployment with our partners will allow scale deployments to be achieved through the DERNetSoft energy marketplace by effectively engaging government, commercial, industrial, and residential customers. This fully integrated solution allows DER to become a fully functional part of the energy marketplace to drive field proven increases in overall grid efficiency and resilience, further reducing energy's impact on the environment.

    “It is my pleasure to announce that the DERNetSoft platform will be integrating with the OSIsoft PI System to help end-use customers effectively engage and participate in a cleaner and more reliable distributed energy future,” said Dr. J. Patrick Kennedy, CEO and Founder of OSIsoft.

    “Achieving the desired clean energy goals of the future requires successful integration of DER technology. However, this integration is not just a matter of technology, policy or finance,” said Alberto Colombo, DERNetSoft's Founder and President. “It can only be achieved if we provide effective and easy-to-use tools to simplify the complexities that surround DERs, their interconnection, and market participation. We are excited to be part of this initiative to help make it easy for customers, and their entire communities, to engage and help solve our most significant energy challenges.”
