“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 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.

A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, wh...
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, will demonstrate how to move beyond today's coding paradigm ...
Ask someone to architect an Internet of Things (IoT) solution and you are guaranteed to see a reference to the cloud. This would lead you to believe that IoT requires the cloud to exist. However, there are many IoT use cases where the cloud is not feasible or desirable. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, will discuss the strategies that exist to extend intelligence directly to IoT devices and sensors, freeing them from the constraints of ...

Digital transformation is too big and important for our future success to not understand the rules that apply to it. The first three rules for winning in this age of hyper-digital transformation are: Advantages in speed, analytics and operational tempos must be captured by implementing an optimized information logistics system (OILS) Real-time operational tempos (IT, people and business processes) must be achieved Businesses that can "analyze data and act and with speed" will dominate those t...
The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...
