AutoGrid Flex Platform to Help Sunrun Manage Growing Fleet of Residential Batteries for Grid Services

Share

AutoGrid, the market leader in flexibility management software for the energy industry, announced today a partnership with Sunrun, Inc. (Nasdaq: RUN) to provide AutoGrid Flex™ Virtual Power Plant (VPP) software to help manage Sunrun’s growing fleet of residential batteries across the United States.

Under the announced partnership, Sunrun will use features of the AutoGrid Flex platform to help manage its fleet of Brightbox rechargeable solar batteries and offer new, innovative grid services and energy management solutions. The cloud-based platform enhances Sunrun’s ability to work with utilities and other electricity providers to optimize and dispatch its storage fleet for the maximum economic benefit of both customers and the grid.

“Rooftop solar and batteries are helping households power through uncertainty. AutoGrid will enhance our capabilities to offer utilities an aggregated fleet of home solar and battery resources to make the electric grid cleaner and more resilient, while reducing costs for all energy consumers,” said Lynn Jurich, CEO and co-founder of Sunrun.

Sunrun is at the leading edge of the transition to a cleaner, more resilient and local electricity system by using rooftop solar and residential batteries to extend grid services to electric utilities and other energy providers. In May, Sunrun announced that the company maintains $50 million in grid services revenue that’s been either contracted or in the pipeline, with projects in New England, California and Hawaii.

These grid services revenues not only help lower the cost of energy storage systems for customers, they also help lower the overall cost of operating the grid by avoiding and deferring expensive infrastructure upgrades and reducing the need to purchase cost-prohibitive peak power. This benefits all electric consumers, including those who are not directly participating in these programs, and significantly reduces the usage of fossil fuel power plants.

With over 5,000 MW of assets under contract, and experience of managing distributed energy resources (DERs) in 12 countries, AutoGrid is the leading provider of flexibility management solutions globally. AutoGrid Flex is ranked as the #1 Virtual Power Plant Platform in the world according to the global ranking published in 2020 by industry-leading research and analysis firm Guidehouse (formerly, Navigant Research).

“As economies are coming back from lockdowns imposed by COVID-19, we are seeing increased societal demand for sustainable energy along with significant demand for cloud-based digital solutions that improve efficiency of operations and competitiveness for energy companies addressing this demand,” said Amit Narayan, Founder & CEO, AutoGrid. “We are honored to be partnering with Sunrun, a true trailblazer in this industry, to work towards our common mission of accelerating access to new energy around the world.”

Research Enhances Understanding of the Nutritional and Economic Differences in Soybean Meal from Different Origins6.7.2020 17:17:00 EESTPress release

A new meta-analytical study reinforces U.S. Soy’s reputation for being a global leader in quality and nutrient-density. The study, entitled, “Chemical composition, protein quality and nutritive value of commercial soybean meals produced from beans from different countries,” demonstrates that not all soybean meals are created equal and that meal from different countries of origin should be treated individually when formulating swine and poultry diets. The data from this study were then processed by the Nutrient Value Calculator (NVC), a software tool constructed by Genesis Feed Technologies, a company built to bring visibility into feed costs. This cost analysis supported the economic benefits of U.S. soybean meal relative to meal from other origins as a key ingredient in poultry rations. Dr. Gonzalo Mateos, Professor of Animal Science at the University of Madrid in Spain and study co-author, first presented findings from the meta-analysis at the U.S. Soybean Export Council’s (USSEC) As

Echosens Announces NICE, UK Health Technology Assessment Organization, Issues MedTech Innovation Briefing on FibroScan Liver Exam in Primary Care6.7.2020 16:00:00 EESTPress release

Echosens, a high-technology company offering the FibroScan family of products, announces today that the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), the United Kingdom’s health technology assessment body providing national guidance and advice to improve health and social care, issued a MedTech Innovation Briefing (MIB) dedicated to utilization of FibroScan non-invasive technology in the primary care setting. The NICE experts concurred that this approach could provide a cost-effective way for the National Health System (NHS) to assess liver fibrosis and cirrhosis in primary care--reducing the need for treatment, referrals and biopsies, and improving accuracy and speed. “Using FibroScan as an interventional therapy helps primary care physicians and nurse specialists engage patients by demonstrating the results and outcomes as a value change that patients can visualize on a regular basis and give them confidence that their efforts have an impact,” says Louise Campbell, patien
