FEATURES AND BENEFITS

BluWave-ai SaaS provides attractive OPEX, CAPEX and environmental benefits through a full set of features:

  • Provides real-time simulation and dashboarding for current states and future predictions of microgrid assets (for example, 5/15/60 minutes ahead, 6 hours ahead, 1 day ahead)
  • Predicts electrical load, including negative load from distributed solar PV assets and battery storage availability
  • Predicts renewables generation from distributed solar PV and wind assets
  • Formulates AI model to manage the energy mix of the microgrid generation assets (fossil fuel, distributed solar, battery energy storage) to minimize energy cost, minimize greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and maximize utilization of renewables
  • Performs systems integration to aggregate device and sensor data from:
    • Upper grid live electricity market and pricing
    • Distributed solar generation and battery assets
    • Microgrid fossil fuel and thermal power plant generation
    • City-wide and substation load
  • Produces near real-time energy dispatch signals
  • Provides demand-response signals for commercial and industrial partners
  • Helps with load shedding, peak shifting management and planning
  • Strategically controls battery energy storage assets for energy arbitrage and grid stability

 

 

Like so many responsible energy  producers, large institutional, commercial, and industrial campuses and plants with grid-tied microgrids are considering how to reduce energy costs and greenhouse gas emissions. Increasingly, operators are looking to integrate renewable energy assets, such as solar photovoltaic (PV) ones, and storage systems with dispatchable load and generation, to lower harmful emissions and displace grid import.

Using AI models trained with site operational data to predict load and generation, as well as energy pricing, BluWave-ai optimizes the use of dispatchable assets, energy storage, and import/export of grid power in real-time. By intelligently managing energy storage and local generation, loads can also be shifted to avoid peak demand periods and reduce demand charges. The net result  is a reduction in energy costs and greenhouse gas emissions of up to 20%.

BluWave-ai also helps reduce battery storage requirements and maximizes battery lifetime, to reduce and/or delay future purchases. BluWave-ai leverages industry standard technologies to ensure interoperability with SCADA and IoT devices, and to work with external data sources such as weather, planned schedules, event signals, market pricing, and performance objectives.

BluWave-ai’s software-as-a-service (SaaS) model allows for rapid deployment with a low upfront cost, immediate operating savings, and an improved return on existing infrastructure investments.

BluWave-ai Edge provides IoT and SCADA data collection and pre-processing, AI inference, prediction and optimization. BluWave-ai Center provides user interface and configuration provisioning and management, and AI model training.
