With increased renewables and more costly extreme weather events, when energy is used is more important than ever. Changes in how electricity is produced, stored, managed and used are forcing the nation’s utilities to adjust how the grid operates. In 2020, the deployment of distributed energy resources (DER) outpaced that of centralized generation for the…
New paper outlines how real-time grid intelligence empowers utilities and their customers to manage peak demand and accelerate energy efficiency (Download here) BOULDER, Colo. — (March 22, 2021) — Copper Labs, a Boulder-based company offering patent-pending wireless real-time energy management (WREM) solutions, today announced the release of “Building Real-Time Grid Intelligence,” a new white paper…
The backdrop of last month’s devastating power outages across Texas paints an ominous picture, and the timing for Copper’s next phase of growth couldn’t be more critical to help address these challenges. Now more than ever, utilities need better ways to manage demand and connect with consumers in real time. And that’s exactly what we do: help utilities take control of energy demand by engaging consumers with real-time meter data.
BOULDER, Colo. and LOS GATOS, Calif. (March 11, 2021) — Copper Labs, a Boulder-based company offering patent-pending wireless real-time energy management (WREM) solutions, today announced an oversubscribed $2 million funding round led by National Grid Partners.
