In July of 2013, Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) selected Comverge to be part of its Subsidy Program for Projects Promoting Japan. This program supports global companies' establishment of new high-value-added business locations in Japan. Designed to enhance Japan's status as an Asian economic center, the METI program incentivizes global organizations to establish high-value business operations in Japan. Comverge was one of only four global organizations to be selected. As a result, Comverge opened an office in Japan and is now better positioned to help Japanese utilities and their affiliates deploy demand response and energy efficiency programs.

Switch for Controlling High-Energy Use Appliances

Comverge IntelliPEAK® is a cost-effective switch for controlling any high-energy use appliance. It includes either a paging, Wi-Fi or cellular radio to enable remote control. For flexibility, it’s designed for one- or two-way communications and two programmable relays can be configured to enact pre‐programmed control strategies for up to four time periods per day.

The IntelliPEAK DirectLink™ control switch uses existing cellular networks or the consumer's broadband network, removing the need for an expensive and complex gateway for two-way communications. As a result, the implementation of a demand response programs—with two-way communications—is significantly more cost-effective. IP-based communication enables remote programming, status reporting, near real-time presence and telemetry collection.
