Comverge Inc., a provider of intelligent energy management solutions, has released a new suite of IntelliSOURCE applications for demand management.

According to the company, the first two advanced applications developed for the IntelliSOURCE platform are demand response optimization and retail device aggregation.

The demand response optimization application, Comverge says, helps determine the most cost-effective assets in real time. The company adds that the retail device aggregation application helps utilities gain a deep level of insight into their customers' energy usage.

Comverge reports that the applications help transform demand response into a real-time operational resource for utilities. Used in conjunction with Wi-Fi-enabled smart thermostats, control switches and other grid-connected devices, the company notes that the new advanced applications offer utilities reliability, predictability and availability when forecasting and executing demand response control events.

Comverge says that the core of the IntelliSOURCE platform is a machine learning system that processes real-time streams of data to make predictions and solve cost- and location-based demand management scenarios.
