2022

DEMANDQ (WALTHAM, MA)

Project Description 

The project, between AEP and DemandQ, will demonstrate the company's demand optimization software and services in action at one of EPRI's buildings in Charlotte, N.C., to understand the technology's potential for reducing peak load and delivering seasonal, dispatchable peak demand curtailment services for C&I customers.

dryad networks (Berlin, germany)

Project Description 

The company will work with Pacific Gas & Electric to demonstrate its Silvanet large scale IoT network solution for early wildfire detection in Northern California. The Silvanet network includes asset-mounted sensors, a mesh network utilizing LORAWAN for communications, and a cloud-based data analysis dashboard.

electric era (seattle, wa)

Project Description 

The company will demonstrate it's PowerNode ™ - 120 energy storage and software system for EV fast-charging with support from Central Hudson Gas & Electric and Xcel Energy at EPRI's SolarTAC facility in Denver, CO. The team will evaluate several fast-charging scenarios using a Tritium fast charger and programmable load bank.

electricfish (Fremont, ca)

Project Description 

ElectricFish, Ameren and EPRI will partner to demonstrate the value of ElectricFish's patented Community Resilience Score (CoReScore ™) within a defined geographical area in a utility's service territory. The outcome is to proactively identify areas which will become burdened with higher EV demand relative to grid capacity gaps, and climate/power outage risks.

enersion (San diego, ca & Toronto, canada)

Project Description 

The company will be building a mobile solar-powered shipping container that provides cooling, hot water, and electricity. The energy cubed product will be fully off-grid, powered solely by solar panels with battery storage. It will be tested at EPRI's Knoxville, TN laboratory, then transferred to Con Edison in New York City where it will be evaluated for use as an off-grid disaster command center and for its energy efficiency properties. ElectroDunas, a distribution utility in Peru and a subsidiary of Grupo Energia Bogota, also will evaluate the project for potential application of the technology in it's service territory.

extensible energy (oakland, ca)

Project Description 

The company will work with FortisBC to evaluate the potential of Extensible Energy's AI-driven software, DemandEX ™ , to help manage commercial building energy use and improve customer comfort in one of FortisBC's office locations in British Columbia.

krakenflex (manchester, UK)

Project Description 

The company will demonstrate its hardware and software solution with Xcel Energy to explore the potential for real-time command, control and dispatch of distributed energy resources.

pingthings (El segundo, ca)

Project Description 

Grupo Energia Bogota will investigate how PingThings' cloud-based platform can enable effortless analytics and the development of actionable insights from myriad sensor data.  Over 12 weeks, EPRI, GEB & PingThings will test and verify the PingThings platform's ability to ingest and manage synchrophasor and SCADA data  sets provided by GEB, to use the platform to explore the data and to analyze potential use cases.

proxxi (vancouver, bc)

Project Description 

The company will demonstrate its voltage sensor wristband technology with Tennessee Valley Authority personnel who generally work around de-energized equipment to understand and document the technology's potential to help workers avoid near-miss situations.

renewell energy (houston, tx)

Project Description 

This project will investigate the company's Gravity Well (abandoned well-to-energy storage) technology by assessing Renewell's pilot installation in Bakersfield, CA.  EPRI's team will collect data and evaluate the characteristics of the technology in action, using the ESIC Energy Storage Test Manual and data submission guidelines as guides.

runwithit sYNTHETICS (eDMONTON, aLBERTA cANADA)

Project Description 

The company will produce a simulation and corresponding visualization of to-be-determined grid event, that includes analysis and visualization of EPRI-sourced data, to provide insights of the potential impacts on people, businesses, community and region.

sensewaves (paris, france)

Project Description 

The company will demonstrate its Adaptix.Grid solution with Grupo Energia Bogota and Southern California Edison to investigate the power of artificial intelligence to provide granular insights from sensor and time-series data to quanity material value that the solution may deliver.

singularity (somerville, ma)

Project Description 

The company will be conducting four separate demonstrations of its real-time carbon intensity platform with Ameren, New York Power Authority, Southern California Edison and Xcel Energy, to evaluate real-time carbon intensity information for electricity consumption in various use cases.

Vizi metering (seattle, wa; ann arbor, mi; sacramento, ca)

Project Description 

The company will demonstrate its non-contact real power meter within an EPRI laboratory to investigate the solution's cost, simplicity, reliability and accuracy. Vizi looks to transform the built environment by making power metering and building health sensing so affordable and simple that it becomes ubiquitous.  

Xerohome (rocklin, ca)

Project Description 

The company will demonstrate its predictive energy modeling software to deliver building and data science insights for selected homes in a location in Ameren's service territory. The project seeks to investigate homeowner participation in utility residential energy upgrade programs to understand if XeroHome's automated process produces reliable results compared to the bespoke, traditional energy audit process requiring a professional home assessor.
