How We Do It
Virtual Peaker runs a real-time control system in the cloud, allowing us to integrate with an unlimited number of smart devices.
Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)
By operating a real-time-control device in the cloud, we are maximally flexible to allow utilities to interface with existing smart devices. This not only (significantly) reduces capital costs but eliminates the need to set up or expand Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI). We can also integrate with new devices in less than two weeks.
Start small. Go Big.
Our platform is built to scale. As most utilities are looking to run and scale up from pilot programs, we grow with you. Whether you have 100 devices or 100,000, we can support your program.
Machine Learning and Real-Time Control
Our platform controls load in real-time, allowing utilities to respond quickly to demand response events or shifting energy prices. Our machine learning algorithm signals utility operators when to schedule events to optimize both costs and operational effectiveness.
A Secure Platform That Scales As You Do
Based on APIs and built in the cloud, our platform can scale up quickly and easily. Whether you are adding new integrations, new customers or anything in between, we have you covered.
Every Home is Unique. We Treat Them That Way.
Because we run a real-time control system in the cloud we can understand the usage patterns of each and every homeowner in your service area. This means that we can optimize each site independently, ensuring maximum program impact with minimal disruption to the homeowner.
