If you have been on the fence about giving ACE IoT a try, visit our newly revamped website during the month of September and sign-up to win a free 3-month pilot.
Earlier this week, ACE IoT Solutions made publicly available the source code for an Open HEMS Mobile App. While the Open HEMS Mobile App is available for free download on both the App Store and Google Play Store, publicly releasing the code will enable utilities to assess the Mobile App’s source code and evaluate whether the Open HEMS functionality could help advance energy efficiency and grid resiliency in their service areas. For power providers that opt to deploy Open HEMS, the publicly available code allows them to add the Open HEMS functionality into their existing mobile app.
Open HEMS Project Illustrates the Value of Grid-Interactive Efficient Buildings (GEBs) to Property Owners, Residents and Power Providers
Since the Department of Energy and RMI released their 2019 report on the cost and benefits of Grid-interactive Efficient Buildings (GEBs), there has been a growing drumbeat of interest in the topic.
A project that ACE IoT is supporting in partnership with Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) illustrates the use cases that highlight the value of GEBs to property owners, residents, and power providers. The project also establishes a viable consumer-centric infrastructure that can enable/support residential GEBs.
TVA has released a 2-minute animated video outlining the key elements of the Open HEMS project. Please check it out.
