Kamstrup and GridManager Partnership

Kamstrup and GridManager Partner to ensure Plug-and-Play Energy Monitoring System for Businesses

 
PRLog - Jun. 19, 2012 - In the wake of the first ever European Energy Efficiency Deal last week ensuring a 15 % energy saving by 2020 Kamstrup and GridManager have announced that they will integrate GridManager’s Demand/Response solution, targeted industrial customers, with Kamstrup’s Advanced Metering Infrastructure solution. The result is a plug-and-play Smart Grid application, which actively monitors and manages consumption 24/7.

According to CEO for GridManager, Mogens Birkelund, the common solution will be a much needed tool for businesses in reaching their energy efficiency goals. With mandatory energy audits for large companies as one of the results of the EU Energy Efficiency Deal, GridManager and Kamstrup expect a growing interest for intelligent energy monitoring at large consumers.

Reducing the energy bill is a way for businesses to increase the bottom line. This can be achieved by saving energy or use energy when it is cheapest, and the integrated GridManager/Kamstrup solution will ensure that this is made easy.  Not only will businesses save money, but utilities, too, will benefit from the solution as their peak loads will be reduced and they will get closer to meeting their energy efficiency targets.  

GridManager’s Mogens Birkelund explains: “There is a high and growing interest for Demand/Response solutions and many demonstration and pilot projects have been or are being carried out. At GridManager we have successfully implemented real-life and full-scale solutions resulting in significant energy cost savings for our customers. A vital part of the complete solution is to be able to measure energy consumption fast and accurately; and by partnering with Kamstrup, we ensure that our customers can use a standardized, well proven and high performance solution from a vendor, who is known for their high quality for this purpose”.

Smart Grid Product Manager at Kamstrup (http://www.kamstrup.com), Henrik Baek Joergensen appreciates the new partnership and adds “Kamstrup is happy to partner with a company, who is one of the leaders within Demand/Response solutions for businesses and industrial customers. Combining our two solutions will create significant value for our common customers”.

GridManager has created an adaptor between their Demand/Response system and Kamstrup’s head-end, Kamstrup UtiliDriver®. This will make integration between the two systems plug and play and support not only Kamstrup electricity meters, but also water, heat and cooling meters via standard wireless M-Bus.  GridManager’s Demand/Response solution will gather consumption data, and an agent will actively monitor and manage consumption 24 hours a day. The constant monitoring is focused on both the customer's equipment, but also - and equally important - energy price development and thus new opportunities for revenue in the intelligent power grid.

An example deployment for the combined solution is a shopping center with hundreds of shops. By installing Kamstrup AMI with electricity, cooling and water meters and GridManager’s Demand/Response solution, each individual shop will see significant savings on the energy and water bill.
