Constellation, a business unit of Exelon, has announced the nationwide launch of VirtuWatt Link, a Web service application meant to facilitate automated demand response program participation.

According to Constellation, VirtuWatt Link allows a facility's existing automation system to manage load curtailment automatically based on energy market signals and pre-set scenarios. The product, which is an extension of Constellation's VirtuWatt energy management platform, enables a broader range of facility types and sizes to participate in a wider array of energy market programs, the company adds.

VirtuWatt Link provides comprehensive load response and security services, including authentication access control, independent system operator event dispatch notification and acknowledgement, and utility meter usage data.
