Open Systems International Inc. (OSI) has delivered and implemented a new large-scale generation management system for Direct Energy LP. The system is based on OSI's multi-platform open network architecture platform.

Direct Energy, which has total generation capacity of more than 1.2 GW, owns and operates three combined cycle power plants and receives the output from five wind farms under power purchase agreements within the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) market.

Direct Energy previously used a third-party qualified scheduling entity service provider to communicate with ERCOT and monitor, report on and control the real-time operation of its generation assets.
