Siemens Smart Grid has introduced Demand Response Management Software (DRMS) 2.5, the latest advancement in its demand response solution.

According to Siemens, the new software offers a number of ways to create rule-based aggregations that can pinpoint localized grid stress within a utility's territory while optimizing the dispatch of consumer loads. The technology further expands upon DRMS 2.0's ability to isolate and target demand reductions via substation, feeder, ZIP code or geographical location.

DRMS 2.5 helps to improve demand response program management by better understanding a utility's specific dispatch request and develops a tailored recommendation of consumer loads and programs to precisely target next best actions, Siemens says. The company adds that this approach to demand response allows utilities to fully manage and utilize the dispatch of consumer loads for both transmission and distribution level constraints.

Siemens reports that the software allows a utility to create and manage demand response programs for both emergency and economic dispatch, manage enrollment, and provide for full event management, notification, load forecasting and analytics.

The solution also has the ability to help balance intermittent renewable energy resources, generate additional revenue streams and assist in meeting specific state and federal regulatory constraints, the company notes.
