Stephen LawPower Supply / Management
MURATA ENERGY SOLUTIONS PowerConnect product line, developed exclusively for the Automated Demand Response (ADR) market, delivers end-to-end solutions that combine firm’s wireless IoT hardware with its cloud-based software to the energy industry. PowerConnect is a cloud-based SaaS that provides streamlined, highly reliable automated performance of demand response actions, as well as the automated monitoring and testing of emergency power supply systems. This allows for the aggregation of multiple facilities into a single portal, so that buildings where it wasn’t economically feasible beforehand can now participate in demand response programs. Additionally, since the solution is vendor neutral, it works with virtually any building management system (BMS).
