Fully Functioning Microgrid Displayed At EnerBlü Grid Services & Iteros ConnectedTM Microgrid Lab During 3rd Annual Sun Valley Forum On Resilience, July 5-8, 2017, Ketchum, ID
June 29, 2017 | 8:00 a.m.
EnerBlü and Iteros will familiarize Forum guests with their innovative hybridized power generation platform and Smart Grid Energy Management Solutions to help build and spread approaches at speed and scale in support of leaders everywhere to accelerate the transformation to resilience.
EnerBlü, Inc. (EnerBlü) and Iteros, Inc. (Iteros) today announced that the companies will be presenting a collaborative solution for integrating and orchestrating large-scale energy storage systems and other distributed energy resources (DERs) from July 5-8, 2017, during the Sun Valley Forum in Sun Valley, ID. Together, the EnerBlü and Iteros teams will be educating Forum guests and the Sun Valley community about building energy resilience utilizing the companies’ respective hardware and software technologies in a “hands-on” Microgrid Lab.
“Presented by the Sun Valley Institute, an organization focused on advancing resilience via policy leadership, public engagement, and targeted investments, the Sun Valley Forum brings together innovators, governments, and business leaders from around the globe to accelerate the transformation to a more prosperous, equitable, and sustainable world,” said Aimée Christensen, Executive Director of the Sun Valley Institute.
On display at the event will be EnerBlü’s Advanced Energy Storage Unit (AESU), which combines a traditional fossil fuel powered generator (like those used globally to generate power) with onboard energy storage to provide a mobile energy delivery system ideal for military, rural, and commercial electrification applications. When integrated with a genset(s), the AESU, which also has the ability to incorporate renewable energy sources (i.e., solar PV, or wind), provides customers with dramatic reductions in both genset fuel usage and emissions while ensuring access to reliable energy when and where they need it. Also on display during the Forum will be EnerBlü’s zero emission Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV), which is a Class 4/5 commercial model that is also produced as both a shuttle bus and as a Class A/B/C school bus.
With the Iteros software platform, AESU owners gain access to real-time information and systemwide performance data, demand-side management capabilities, and the ability to respond to market signals and participate in ancillary services. The platform includes templated controls and code-free engineering features that reduce integration costs and provide access to valuable energy data within minutes of interconnection.
Daniel Elliott, EnerBlü’s CEO stated, “The quality of the people and their intimate level of understanding of the challenges ahead of us constitute the perfect venue to bolster the fact that transformational power generation systems and innovative clean vehicles are viable solutions that can impact tomorrow’s future today, and empower consumers to create cleaner, sustainable communities not only in the United States but also in countries that are in the process of building their infrastructure. EnerBlü is involved in all those fronts.” Jennifer Worrall, co-founder, President, and CEO of Iteros added, “We are thrilled for the opportunity to showcase our smart grid-enabling energy management capabilities with EnerBlü’s innovative products.”
