BPL Global Ltd. (BPLG) and Corporate Systems Engineering (CSE) have announced a collaboration to deliver demand management systems.

The combination of BPLG's software suite and experience in deploying two-way load control, coupled with CSE's control hardware, will provide utilities with a straightforward path to upgrade legacy one-way residential demand response systems to next-generation demand management technology, the companies say.

BPLG's Connected Energy demand management solution enables a broader set of utility use cases including operational emergency curtailment, ancillary services and peak load shifting, in addition to traditional peak load reduction, the companies add. CSE's experience with load control devices, presently deployed in a large scale at residential, commercial and industrial applications, will help to enhance BPLG's capability to provide optimum solutions across the utility space.

"As part of BPLG's next-generation demand management solution, we can capitalize on the conversion of yesterday's one-way communicating demand response needs to the advanced management of load as an operational asset for electric utilities," says Steve Taylor, president and CEO of CSE. "BPLG's broader set of solutions for advanced distribution automation provide an opportunity to deploy our control solutions beyond demand management into additional grid monitoring and control applications."
