CLEAResult and Virtual Peaker announce partnership to better serve utilities
Austin, TX and Louisville, KY (September 1, 2022)—CLEAResult, the largest provider of energy efficiency, energy transition, and decarbonization solutions in North America, and Virtual Peaker, a cloud-based SaaS company with the friendliest distributed energy platform on the planet, announced a new partnership today to supercharge customer engagement for demand-side management programs.
The two companies are offering an end-to-end, distributed energy resource (DER) management solution that meets the rapid increase in demand and changing operational needs utilities are preparing for, especially in light of the Inflation Reduction Act. CLEAResult’s proven experience with customer outreach and engagement for energy efficiency and decarbonization programs complements Virtual Peaker’s SaaS platform, which includes demand forecasting, customer engagement, and distributed energy resource management system (DERMS) solutions.
“Together, our teams will deliver the best of both worlds–easier program participation for customers and simpler management for utilities,” said Divakar Jandhyala, CLEAResult’s Chief Product & Technology Officer. “We’re proactively removing participation barriers to improve the experience for everyone.”
The partnership integrates the CLEAResult ATLAS™ platform with Virtual Peaker’s distributed energy platform, connecting customers’ smart devices with advanced demand management tools that give utilities a simple and easy-to-manage overview of customers’ energy habits.
"We’re excited to partner with CLEAResult and look forward to working together to rapidly scale demand side management," said Kirsten Millar, Director of Policy and Partnerships. "Today's partnership announcement advances our mission to accelerate the adoption of DERs. By working with industry leaders like CLEAResult and bringing our technology platforms together, we will provide quantifiable cost savings and efficiencies to our utility clients.”
The CLEAResult-Virtual Peaker partnership brings utilities powerful solutions to address growing energy efficiency and demand challenges like engaging with hard-to-reach communities, individual device management, program optimization and more.
