White Paper: Go Green. Save Green. Earn Green.

September 27, 2018

In this white paper, we’ll explore the various forms that demand-side energy management takes. We’ll look at how one university seized the opportunity to generate significant revenue from demand response participation and succeeded spectacularly. Finally, we’ll examine distributed energy resources and how another university found an innovative way to both optimize their energy program and maximize their revenue with intelligent storage.

Monetizing Energy Assets for Data Centers

August 01, 2018

A complete guide for earning revenue with demand-side energy management

The data center industry’s recent push toward a more efficient and sustainable future comes at a serendipitous time when energy markets around the country are working to reduce demand via energy efficiency investments and to integrate distributed energy resources (DERs) onto their energy grids in an attempt to diversify their fuel mixes.

Data Centers with distributed resources at their facilities like backup generators are in prime position to reap significant financial benefits by working with a properly licensed company that can help them monetize their existing energy assets.

This paper offers a detailed explanation of how a data center can monetize its existing energy assets with demand-side energy management.

programs and practices that comprise it. In this explanation, we’ll take a close look at the evolving energy industry in the US with an emphasis on the growth of DERs and the role they play and will continue to play in North America’s fuel mix of today and tomorrow.

White Paper: Distributed Energy Resources and the Role of Aggregated Demand Management

July 16, 2018

The recent and rapid adoption of distributed energy resources (DER) such as solar PV, energy efficiency, energy storage, and generator sets offers a new set of challenges to aggregation and demand-side energy management. This white paper provides background on the new technologies, highlights major integration issues, and offers recommendations to DR customers looking to monetize their DER assets.

White Paper: The New England Electric Power Market

January 23, 2017

In the New England electric power market, sharply rising capacity costs and energy volatility in the New England power market will increase your electricity costs despite relatively low fuel prices and flat usage trends. This white paper explores the underlying reasons, and goes on to explain specific actions commercial and industrial customers can take to mitigate these cost increases.

ISO New England (ISO-NE) is responsible for keeping electricity flowing across the six-state New England region: Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont. In so doing, ISO-NE’s core mission is system reliability.

To ensure reliability ISO-NE oversees the day-to-day operation of New England’s electric power generation and transmission system to keep the energy that generators supply to the grid in near-perfect balance with consumers’ energy demand. To ensure the system maintains adequate generating and transmission capacity to serve current and future needs ISO-NE manages a comprehensive regional pwoer system planning process and the region’s competitive wholesale electricity markets.

White Paper: The Evolving New York Energy Market

In this white paper, CPower’s Mike Hourihan aims to explain how recent events have played a role in shaping both the New York Energy Market’s current state and its evolution. He’ll also attempt to predict what might be in store for the market and how he believes New York businesses can position themselves to better manage their energy today and in the future.
