“Estamos dando pasos en forma deliberada para alentar e impulsar a nuestros clientes residenciales y comerciales a ahorrar dinero y evitar el desperdicio en el consumo,” afirmó Michael Grasso, director de comercialización de TXU Energy. "Mientras algunos clientes perciben los beneficios individuales de ahorrar dinero, otros claramente reconocen el impacto que sus esfuerzos personales de conservación tienen para Texas y para la confiabilidad de la principal rejilla eléctrica del estado.”

Productos

  • Brighten® iThermostat – Los clientes residenciales y comerciales que usan esta solución para ahorros de energía de TXU Energy pueden controlar un termostato inteligente completamente integrado en su hogar o en forma remota, a través de Internet o a través de aplicaciones gratuitas para teléfonos inteligentes, que les permite reducir el consumo y el gasto en electricidad, incluso cuando no están en su hogar. Los clientes residenciales que tienen iThermostats también participan en un programa de conservación que ofrece TXU Energy. El programa permite que decenas de miles de clientes de TXU Energy participen en eventos de respuesta a picos de demanda en todo el estado, los cuales desactivan temporalmente las unidades de aire acondicionado. Cuando ERCOT advirtió que los niveles de demanda podían generar cortes de energía durante el verano de 2011, nosotros llevamos a cabo 15 eventos de ciclismo diferentes, cada uno de los cuales redujo entre 30 y 45 megavatios de demanda de la rejilla.
  • TXU Energy MyEnergy DashboardSM – Entre otras cosas, “el panel” permite a los clientes rastrear los detalles de su utilización y encontrar oportunidades para reducir el consumo. Para los clientes con medidores inteligentes, también ofrece un pronóstico basado en los patrones actuales de utilización sobre cuál será su utilización y su costo a fin de mes, brindándoles información valiosa que puede ayudar a reducir el consumo general mes a mes. TXU Energy MyEnergy Dashboard también está disponible para algunos clientes comerciales.
  • SolarLease® Service Package (Paquete de servicio SolarLease®) – En conjunto con SolarCity, el servicio SolarLease de TXU Energy le ofrece sistemas de energía solar a los propietarios del norte de Texas para que puedan abastecer de energía a sus hogares con ahorros de costos inmediatos.

Este programa les proporcionó más de 10 millones USD a los dueños de las empresas para que puedan usar menos electricidad y ahorrar más dinero.

Planes

  • TXU Energy Free Nights (Noches gratis de TXU Energy) – Los innovadores planes de Noches gratis de TXU Energy crean un incentivo para que los clientes cambien su consumo eléctrico de las horas de pico de demanda y de calor por un consumo nocturno, cuando la electricidad eólica está más disponible y los precios del mercado son menores.
  • TXU Energy Texas Choice Wind (Texas elige el viento de TXU Energy) – TXU Energy ofrece planes de servicio que incluyen el 100 por ciento de energía eólica. Los planes tienen precios garantizados, así como también acceso al conjunto de soluciones gratuitas de la compañía para monitorear y administrar el consumo.

  • Alertas de administración de energía – Estas alertas automáticas gratuitas permiten que los clientes sepan en qué momento su consumo está por exceder los límites establecidos en forma individual y limiten su consumo para poder continuar dentro de sus preferencias de gastos.
  • Brighten® Asesor personal de energía – TXU Energy ofrece a todos los consumidores residenciales de electricidad el acceso gratuito a recomendaciones, consejos, herramientas e instrucciones de proyecto personalizadas para reducir el consumo a través de una mejora en la eficiencia.

  • Brighten® Tienda de Energía en línea – TXU Energy ofrece una tienda cómoda y completa con una amplia selección de productos con precios competitivos que pueden ayudar a los consumidores a ahorrar energía y a hacer que sus hogares sean más eficientes en términos de energía.

“Invertimos y continuaremos invirtiendo en planes de servicio, tecnología y recursos educativos que faciliten a los clientes la comprensión y el control de su consumo”, agregó Grasso. “Hemos observado una aceptación enorme de cientos de miles de nuestros clientes, quienes se involucraron con nosotros para administrar su consumo de energía de maneras nuevas y diferentes”.

TXU Energy también juega un papel importante para conservar y evitar el desperdicio en el consumo. Entre otras cosas:

  • El edificio de las oficinas centrales de la compañía en Irving cuenta con la certificación LEED® Silver del U.S. Green Building Council® (Consejo de edificios verdes) de los Estados Unidos y utiliza energía renovable.
  • Las luces de las oficinas están controladas por sensores de movimiento.
  • Las luces del edificio se atenúan durante los períodos de picos de demanda.
  • Las cortinas de las ventanas se bajan durante los períodos de picos de demanda para evitar la pérdida de temperatura.
  • Los termostatos se incrementan durante las horas pico de verano y fuera del horario normal de trabajo.

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

Most people haven’t heard the word, “gamification,” even though they probably, and perhaps unwittingly, participate in it every day. Gamification is “the process of adding games or game-like elements to something (as a task) so as to encourage participation.” Further, gamification is about bringing game mechanics – rules, constructs, processes, and methods – into the real world in an effort to engage people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robert Endo, owner and engagement manager of Intrepid D...
Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

WebRTC: together these advances have created a perfect storm of technologies that are disrupting and transforming classic communications models and ecosystems. In his session at WebRTC Summit, Cary Bran, VP of Innovation and New Ventures at Plantronics and PLT Labs, provided an overview of this technological shift, including associated business and consumer communications impacts, and opportunities it may enable, complement or entirely transform.
There are so many tools and techniques for data analytics that even for a data scientist the choices, possible systems, and even the types of data can be daunting. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Harrold, Global CTO for Big Data Solutions for EMC Corporation, showed how to perform a simple, but meaningful analysis of social sentiment data using freely available tools that take only minutes to download and install. Participants received the download information, scripts, and complete end-t...
For manufacturers, the Internet of Things (IoT) represents a jumping-off point for innovation, jobs, and revenue creation. But to adequately seize the opportunity, manufacturers must design devices that are interconnected, can continually sense their environment and process huge amounts of data. As a first step, manufacturers must embrace a new product development ecosystem in order to support these products.
Manufacturing connected IoT versions of traditional products requires more than multiple deep technology skills. It also requires a shift in mindset, to realize that connected, sensor-enabled “things” act more like services than what we usually think of as products. In his session at @ThingsExpo, David Friedman, CEO and co-founder of Ayla Networks, discussed how when sensors start generating detailed real-world data about products and how they’re being used, smart manufacturers can use the dat...
When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...
