2015: A Banner Year for Comverge

1/22/2016 11:31:49 AM | by Jason Cigarran
We issued a press release this week announcing that Comverge helped our utility clients avoid more than 30 gigawatt hours of energy use during their grids' mload_curveost congested hours. We did this by dispatching 9.4 million control events that automatically cycled off high energy use appliances (ex  air conditioner or water heater) for residential and small to mid-sized business customers. This energy reduction set a record for Comverge, demonstrating the increased operational effectiveness of our demand response business. In addition to the value we delivered to our clients in 2015, Comverge received some great recognition. Below are some of the highlights:

Our clients also received excellent recognition:

  • 2015 Peak Load Management Alliance Program Pacesetter Award - Pepco Holdings

  • 2015 CLEAR Award for Excellence in Customer Education - Pepco Holdings

  • 2015 Smart Grid Customer Education Award - Gulf Power


2015 was a great year for Comverge and 2016 is off to a great start with our recent webinar on ""Understanding How a Targeted Demand Management Program Can Reduce Investments in New Infrastructure" setting attendance records. Next, we're off to Orlando for DistribuTECH where we have some big announcements planned. If you're going to DistribuTECH, please sign up for our Utility University Course entitled "An Insider's Guide to Successful Demand Management Program Design and Customer Recruitment."

Hope to see in Orlando!
