January 9, 2024

2023 was a year for the books in more ways than one. The country weathered its hottest summer on record. But renewables also generated a quarter of the power supply during the first half of the year.

In the utility industry, virtual power plants (VPPs) are demonstrating they are up to the task of navigating more variable loads and higher peaks. EnergyHub celebrated more than one million devices under management, expansion into Ontario, and advances in EV managed charging. 

Read on for a look at our most popular content from the past year.

1. VPPs prove their mettle

During the hottest summer ever recorded, EnergyHub clients called 1,831 events and shifted 68 GWh out of peak times, while keeping the grid reliable and utility customers safe. Against this background, virtual power plants (VPPs) proved they are a key part of the utility resource stack.

Learn more about last year’s results.

2. There’s a calc for that (carbon impact)

Accounting for the long-term carbon reduction impact of VPPs is challenging, but critically important to understanding the technology’s full potential. EnergyHub’s methodology can help utilities better understand the value of flexible load programs.

3. Defeating EV distribution challenges

This white paper breaks down electric vehicle (EV) grid challenges and solutions, and explores how managed charging can help utilities upgrade distribution infrastructure strategically and affordably while delighting customers.

4. Is your DERMS a team player?

Internal teams have unique expectations and requirements for distributed energy resource management systems (DERMS). Learn how to select a platform that benefits  distribution operations, power supply, demand response, and IT departments.

Learn how DERMS can empower multiple utility teams.

5. A cool million (and counting)

In April, EnergyHub became the first DERMS provider to manage more than one million thermostats, EVs, energy storage systems, and other distributed energy resources (DERs). The platform delivers more than 1.35 GW of flexibility across the grid–more capacity than a medium-sized nuclear plant.

6. Partnering on Peak Perks

Last summer, EnergyHub partnered with Ontario’s IESO grid operation to defeat peak loads by delivering the Save On Peak Perks program that rewards residents who opt in. The program enrolled more than 100,000 customers in its first few months.

7. You had me at Test-la

There are test labs. And then there are test-la labs. EnergyHub’s device lab–the industry’s largest–is equipped with everything from smart thermostats to solar inverters to simulate how client VPPs will perform under real-world conditions.

Learn more about the lab.

These seven resources highlight some of the ways EnergyHub is working to accelerate the expansion of multi-DER VPPs to deliver flexibility and progress toward decarbonization goals. But scale matters, which is why we’re partnering with the industry to extend the benefits of VPPs further, faster.
