The firm called EnergyHub recently collaborated with Oracle Utilities. This will be aiding energy providers to incorporate distributed energy resource aka DERs. This will go into customer engagement and distribution network operations. That is why these two firms have teamed up to power-up the Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) program. This is said to create a connected utility experience for the clients. The move will also initiate the distribution operators to integrate DERs at scale.
Oracle is known for delivering Opower which is considered to be the most deployed utility customer engagement platform. It is also known for its contribution to the management system (NMS) for the advanced distribution operation. At the same time, EnergyHub is known for its Mercury DERMS. It is a platform known to enable utilities that is to monitor, orchestrate and enroll DERs at a scale. This means it acts as a combined solution and also this platform will unlock new utilities for the value from DERs. Eventually becomes a complete connected utility customer.
Seth Frader Thompson who is the co-founder and president of EnergyHub did say that its clients are looking for an enterprise-wide solution for the management of grid-edge DERs through the combination of Oracle’s capabilities. This will further drive greater adoption of customer-owned DERs.
