GE and Energate Inc. have entered into an integration agreement to provide joint solutions for residential demand response and home energy management to utility customers.

Under the agreement, Energate will supply its Consumer Connected Demand Response (CCDR) platform in conjunction with GE's Grid IQ Respond Solutions as a Service (SaaS) offering for GE's PowerOn Precision software platform.

The collaboration will utilize Energate's CCDR platform, with its range of hardware and software technologies, integrated with GE's Asset Control and SaaS suites.
