PhoenixET’s EDX Demand Manager provides maximum energy reduction by managing demand across multiple systems to meet energy cost and load objectives without sacrificing customer comfort or installing additional hardware or meters.

PhoenixET announced today the introduction of its breakthrough EDX Demand Manager™ software module, an addition to its popular Enterprise Energy Management (EEM) platform EDX. Demand Manager allows Energy Managers to handle more demand events and more complex load reduction strategies, across more locations, with minimum effort.

“EDX Demand Manager, is the next big step in the evolution of demand management,” said Glen Schrank, CEO of PhoenixET. “EDX is already a strong player in energy management, with remote commanding and reporting across the largest number of building automation systems, and with Demand Manager, we’re extending its capabilities even further. Now with Demand Manager, Energy Managers can create and establish strategies that automatically adjust, in real-time, to changing conditions and deploy multiple tactics across a company’s enterprise to establish maximum savings.”

PhoenixET’s CTO Keith Gipson, added, “Energy managers are under competing pressures to meet budgets, reduce energy costs, meet carbon footprint goals, and manage customer comfort, all with a lack of visibility, messy control systems, and local users complaining or manually changing the controls. Even with the right technology, including control systems with programmable capability and meters to react to, managing hundreds or thousands of locations is challenging without a dedicated team. Phoenix Energy Technology’s Demand Manager puts you back in control.”

EDX Demand Manager features: 

  • Location Dashboard: At-a-glance view of locations’ kWh capacity and usage as well as outside temperature, withDemandManager the ability to create clusters of locations by multiple attributes.
  • Strategies Dashboard: Complex rules engine allows Energy Managers to architect a series of tactics including set point changes and resets, lighting curtailment, and more to meet goals without adversely affecting operations or customer comfort.
  • Events Dashboard: Participate in utilities’ demand reduction events by automatically deploying created strategies and easily reporting outcomes.

“We’re excited to add features such as real-time price (RTP) and automated demand response event notifications (ADR) in the very near future. We have so many launches coming up this year, it’s an exciting time at PhoenixET,” added Gipson.
