SYDNEY, NSW, AUSTRALIA, October 1, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Two leading Australian energy-tech innovation companies will work together to enable mass-market participation for home and small business consumers in the emerging intelligent electricity grid.
energyOS, whose energy services platform was originally developed by Australia’s national science agency the CSIRO, has integrated its sophisticated energy services operating system eOS to ‘work with’ the data-rich monitoring and switching solutions created by digital energy company Wattwatchers.
Formerly known as HabiDapt, energyOS has rebranded and expanded in 2018. It has recently launched a new website https://energyos.com.au with the central theme of orchestrating electricity in a ‘dynamic, demand-driven and distributed’ operating environment.
The shared vision for Wattwatchers and energyOS revolves around the pressing need for a technology-led, Grid 2.0 transformation of the electricity system to:
● Inform and empower energy consumers to participate more effectively in the ‘new energy’ marketplace,
● Integrate and optimise distributed energy resources such as solar and storage, and
● Enable real-time visualisation and precise orchestration of grids to balance supply and demand.
Wattwatchers CEO Gavin Dietz said that energyOS was an important strategic match because of its deep experience in home energy management, based on more than a decade of research and development and extensive frontline work in the field.
‘Wattwatchers devices and data streams are a powerful technology match for energyOS,’ said Dietz. ‘In particular, Wattwatchers aligns with energyOS for its Energy Services Infrastructure (ESI) product lines, which uses third-party hardware such as Wattwatchers metering and switching devices, installs them at consumer sites, then supports real-time data visualisation, analytical and switching services including appliance-level monitoring and control.’
energyOS CEO Stephen Kubicki said that Wattwatchers offered a robust and highly flexible suite of energy data monitoring and switching solutions, with real-time connectivity and high-grade accuracy.
‘Wattwatchers has become the first choice of independent hardware for our Energy Services Infrastructure product lines, including our turnkey energy services,’ said Kubicki. ‘We’ve already used the Wattwatchers hardware in residential programs in Victoria and Western Australia and we’re excited to be collaborating with them on a product line specifically designed for mass markets.’
energyOS’s software platform, eOS, was originally developed by Australia’s national science agency, the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO).
eOS is an operating system for energy. It is a multi-tasking, multi-user platform that orchestrates data, software and devices.
eOS is the most sophisticated energy services architecture of its kind for portfolios of sites or devices. The energyOS team has been at the forefront of energy services for more than 10 years and includes the computer scientists who originally developed the platform at CSIRO. energyOS has programs in NSW, Victoria, Queensland, Western Australia and South Australia, ranging across smart meter services, demand management, load matching, solar PV and battery portfolio management and new technology rollouts.
