Intelligent energy management
Networked Energy Services Corporation (NES) is one of the world's leading smart energy companies. The company, which was formerly part of Echelon Corporation, develops and produces OSGP-based (“Open Smart Grid Protocol”) hardware and software solutions for intelligent power grids. Millions of these products have been installed and are operating successfully at market leading utilities around the world.
NES' business focus is the development and sale of its NES system, which includes utility data center software, field distributed application nodes and OSGP compliant devices used for advanced metering, control and grid data collection. Currently, there are more than 4 million OSGP based smart end point devices installed by utilities around the world.
Smart grids, enabled by the NES system, feature the secure, reliable transmission of data – enabled by intelligent power grid components – between energy suppliers and consumers. This increases the efficiency of networks, and gives rise to new services and models for the calculation of invoices based on supply and demand. Such grids will also expedite the expansion of sustainable energy-based grids and enable consumers to become active participants in energy conservation. NES brings utilities a single, open, extensible infrastructure over which they can run a wide set of functions that enable them to realize savings, efficiency gains and revenue enhancements in metering, customer services, distribution operations, and allied areas. The system also enables utilities to improve service quality and customer retention capability while setting the stage for future in-premise applications.
