Causam Energy in the News
The Causam Energy software platform is architected to deliver real-time communications, payment, and data services to all intelligent power grid participants. Causam Energy enables construction of innovative power software grid applications at a fraction of classic costs. Causam designed our platform from the ground up to meet new needs like data ingress proliferation, consumer marketing and response optimization and to maximize return on technology for existing smart meter, market management, and enterprise software investment. We integrate to existing enterprise systems and applications to maximize investment.
Advanced Energy Settlements
Currently, legacy settlements to generators follow an inefficient, synchronous process based on data approximation, manual exchange, and credit float. AES fixes that by providing real time, revenue grade data capture, distributed settlement algorithms, and automated electronic payment exchange to connect consumers and generators.
Power Generation Services, Inc. (PoGens™), a licensee of Causam technologies, is a turnkey provider of managed energy services for Distributed Generation and Distributed Energy Resources to commercial customers in North America. In an increasingly complex and ever changing energy environment, their mission is to leverage our national energy services platform to assist customers in the transition toward cleaner energy, while enhancing profitability of generation assets.
High Speed Ethernet Communication
The evolution to next generation, high speed, bi-directional Internet Protocol based communication is happening, with the help of our communications partners and carriers. Wired and wireless connectivity to grid elements such as meters, consumer controls, distributed generators, intelligent switching, electric vehicles, point of sale terminals will enable rapid data exchange and collaboration.
Analytics and Intelligence
The number of grid elements, sensors, consumers, generators will continue to increase. Grid participants have more visibility than ever into the operations, but no way to harness the information and make decisions and recommendations. Causam’s product line is architected from the beginning to be ready for the exponential data increase on the Power Grid as more devices and systems become interconnected. And to capture the packet level information, revenue extraction information, event detection, forecasting, intelligence, and enterprise integration so your current systems get smarter.
What We Believe
Modernizing the grid is about more than just advanced metering infrastructure (AMI), traditional demand response (DR), and statistical modeling. It’s about real time data for real time analytics and real time decision making combined with customer engagement. It’s about improving our national security, the reliability of the grid and harnessing renewable energy sources.
