eCurv, a leading provider of demand management software services, and Advanced Microgrid Solutions (AMS) a pioneer in the use of advanced energy storage systems received a $179,500 grant from the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources (DOER) to design and implement an easily scalable solution that will decrease peak demand statewide. eCurv and AMS are partnering with Eversource, New England’s largest energy company, to implement services across both solar-enabled and non-solar KOHL’S sites in Massachusetts. The Baker-Polito Administration announced that DOER awarded nine grants in total to position Massachusetts as the national leader in peak energy demand reduction.
“Massachusetts is proud to be a national leader in energy efficiency programs that reduce overall consumption and we are committed to continuing our work to improve energy costs disproportionately affected by times of peak demand,” said Governor Charlie Baker. “The demonstration projects funded through these grants will strengthen our innovation economy and provide the Commonwealth with a roadmap for reducing our most expensive energy loads and securing our energy future.”
eCurv’s patented software is modeled after the digital queuing technology successfully employed by telecommunications providers to control network congestion. The company’s Queued Power Access in the Cloud (QPAC®) service mitigates expensive peak demand events by dynamically queuing…
