AE Platform Dashboard
The same technology advancements that empowered the shift from the primary computer platform to being a large, centralized mainframe to handheld cell phones can be used to shift primary energy generation from large, centralized power plants to Distributed Energy Resources such as solar power, energy storage (batteries), and load (power) controllers.
The AE Platform dashboard is easy to read, real-time user interface, showing a graphical presentation of the current and historical energy demand, solar PV production, and benchmarking by building or group of buildings. We provide a set of analytic tools developed by the US Lawrence Berkeley National Labs. If necessary, the system can provide circuit-level monitoring so that actual demand can be broken down by load type. AE Platform is a modular suite of open source applications that can monitor and manage heating and cooling, ventilation, lighting, and specific equipment. It can also control Distributed Energy Resources locally and remotely from a single building to campus, to a dispersed portfolio of buildings and field devices.
We support a wide range of meters and submeters, sensors, relays and switches, smart thermostats, EV chargers, PV inverters, and energy storage systems.

Distributed Energy Resource Management
AE Platform is designed to support Distributed Energy Resources, like solar PV and energy (battery) storage. Energy variability is one of the most significant challenges to transitioning to renewable energy. Cost-effectively managing demand and supply to address variability is a complex challenge. Utilities can deploy AE Platform to provide voltage and frequency support rather than rely primarily on capacitor banks and load tap changes to modulate the large fluctuations that occur when a feeder has a high degree of solar PV penetration.
For building owners, the system can forecast how much energy you will use from the next few hours to the next few days, how much solar power is being generated, and how much energy your batteries are currently storing. Based on a set of rules, if the solar power is insufficient to meet your current electric demand, the controller determines when it is best to buy power from the utility or to use battery power.
