AutoGrid Systems Inc. and NTT DATA Corp., a Japan-based IT services company, have entered into a strategic research and development (R&D) agreement to develop new technologies for the energy sector based on AutoGrid's Energy Data Platform (EDP).

The partners say they will utilize big data techniques to develop a cloud-based, demand-side management application to help electricity users save money and improve grid reliability. Upon successful completion of the R&D project, the companies will jointly market and deploy the applications in the U.S. and the rest of the world. The project will start in September.
