Siemens Smart Grid has introduced Demand Response Management System (DRMS) Version 2.0. The company says the new system surgically targets demand reductions via substation, feeder, ZIP code or geographical location and allows utilities to reduce power loads at critical sections of their distribution network.

Siemens adds that its DRMS 2.0 manages all aspects of demand response and can take stress off of an asset and reduce the load, facilitating greater reliability and asset life throughout the grid. At the same time, the application allows users to structure programs to maximize energy market opportunities.

"This is one of the first demand response systems that can surgically pinpoint a load overage or outage event, making it easier for utilities to distribute reliable power while reducing lifecycle costs at their facilities,” says Thierry Godart, president of Siemens Smart Grid in the U.S. “Siemens is proud to offer a technology solution that will help ensure utilities have more efficient and dependable systems for targeted, real-time demand event monitoring while modernizing the grid to meet the country’s growing electricity needs.”
