Demand Response (DR) & Distributed Resource Management Solutions
Smarter energy. Smarter choices.
Ventyx supports commercial and retail utility operations that are required to deliver effective demand response programs, distributed energy management and resource optimization for successful smart grid deployments. These programs provide real-time pricing and data to producers and consumers, and when supported by the Ventyx DR Management solution, give customers the ability to make more informed choices about how and when they use power by providing them with incentives for controlling energy loads on the network.
With Ventyx DR Management, utilities, generation companies and distribution companies are able to better optimize demand response and distributed energy resources to better manage peak demand periods, minimize the impact of outages and decrease investments in additional generation, transmission and distribution assets.
