Limejump Ltd., a smart grid technology start-up, has incorporated CustomWeather Inc.'s data into its system that connects to customers' smart meters, enabling these customers to engage with and manage their electricity requirements. CustomWeather is a provider of high-resolution weather forecast and alert services.

According to the companies, the data is utilized in four areas: demand forecasting, price forecasting, demand response optimization and transmission use of system charges management. The companies say CustomWeather's data allows Limejump to alert customers to expected high demand time frames so that energy consumption can be voluntarily reduced.
