GridSynergy - Cloud Based Powerhouse Software
GridSynergy Software learns your facility’s energy use patterns and responds automatically to peaks in demand by directing the battery to store and discharge capacity.
A cloud-based powerhouse
GridSynergy Software serves three primary functions:
- Controls your GridSynergy Storage.
- Provides a portal for you to view your savings and revenues.
- Allows remote monitoring and analysis by the Green Charge professional services team.
As a control system, GridSynergy relies on the analysis of thousands of sites to calculate optimal charge and discharge cycles. As the system learns your site-specific load profile, its predictive algorithm adjusts second-by-second to maximize your benefits.
GridSynergy’s peak shaving module optimizes the battery storage system to reduce your peak demand charges by configuring individual demand set points for each time-of-use period. It then directs the energy storage system to discharge power to ensure that the peak usage recorded by the utility does not exceed those set points.
Schools, retailers, and other facilities whose load drops off at the end of the business day can take advantage of this module to charge their GridSynergy Storage during low-rate evening hours. The stored energy can then be discharged during peak-rate hours, reducing the need to pull more expensive power from the grid.
Customers participating in demand response (DR) programs charge and discharge stored energy at the request of utility network operators seeking to relieve stress on their grids. Green Charge acts as a DR aggregator, fulfilling operator requests via the GridSynergy Storage systems of its participating customers. We compensate you when DR services are rendered.
Energy storage is the best way to boost your solar savings. Sensing any disruptions in solar output, GridSynergy discharges stored energy to keep pull from the grid at a consistent level, thereby avoiding usage peaks that would incur additional demand charges.
GridSynergy’s rate optimization module caps peak demand across the board at a threshold that will enable you to meet the requirements for a lower rate tariff.
Measure and communicate performance and savings
You can log into GridSynergy from your desktop or a mobile device to track your savings and your revenues at any time. Our versatile customer portal gives you both a high-level perspective of your facilities’ energy use and a drill-down mode that allows you to view real-time and historical data for each site. These data visualizations make it easy to understand the sources of your accrued savings and communicate this information to others in your organization.
