AT&T and Acclaim Energy Advisors have announced an agreement designed to provide demand-response (DR) services. Powered by AT&T, the Acclaim Energy DLO365, or dynamic load optimization, will utilize smart grid technology to provide intelligent power metering and control systems that enable remote monitoring and switching of loads from the grid to standby generators within seconds, according to the companies.

DLO365 can automatically reduce energy loads as small as 100 kW across many customer sites when called upon either by a grid operator or another DR program manager.

"Although grid challenges are growing nationwide, we're introducing this service first in Texas due to its acute electricity generation problems and potential reliability issues in 2012 and beyond," says John Elder, CEO of Acclaim Energy Advisors.
