Toshiba Corp. has acquired privately held Consert Inc., an intelligent energy management company. The purchase makes Consert a Toshiba subsidiary, and operations in North America will be integrated with Landis+Gyr, a provider of energy management products and a Toshiba Group company.

Consert, through its Virtual Peak Plant (VPP), offers a fully integrated, intelligent load management solution for utilities. VPP is designed to provide improved forecasting and capacity management, real-time outage management information and remote service connections.
