As part of a Department of Energy Smart Grid Demonstration Project, Alstom has been awarded a contract to deliver Demand Response Management System (DRMS) to Con Edison.
Con Edison provides electric service to 3.3 million customers in New York City and Westchester County, New York. Alstoms DRMS, based on its e-terraDRBizNet 3.0 (pdf) technology, will allow Con Edison to efficiently use consumer loads to manage energy supply and demand, with incentives offered to electricity customers to reduce consumption during periods of peak distribution system demandsuch as hot summer days, or to alleviate stress on the distribution system. This demand response management system optimizes existing energy available and paves the way to a reliable grid.
