New York, NY – May 8, 2017 – EnergyHub announced today that it has expanded its partnership with Nest by integrating with Nest’s new dispatch API, making Mercury the only DERMS in the industry with that capability.
EnergyHub’s integration with Nest now provides EnergyHub utility customers with an even greater ability to manage Nest Learning Thermostats from EnergyHub’s Mercury platform, including the ability to both enroll and dispatch Nest Thermostats as part of demand response programs managed by EnergyHub."Adding this capability is a big win for our utility customers," said Seth Frader-Thompson, President of EnergyHub. "Nest is consistently a popular choice for consumers in our utility programs, and we’re pleased that Nest chose us as the first DERMS to have this enhanced capability."
More than 30 utilities around the country use EnergyHub’s Mercury DERMS and program management services to run successful demand response and DER programs.
Nest Thermostats offer a wide range of features that help customers stay comfortable while managing home energy consumption. It remembers what temperatures customers like, creates a custom schedule for the home, and turns itself down when everyone is away. Nest Thermostats have been proven by independent researchers to save customers, on average, about 10 to 12 percent on their heating bills and about 15 percent on their cooling bills.
"We were very excited to provide EnergyHub with this expanded capability,” said Jeff Hamel, Head of Energy Partnerships at Nest. “We have a strong partnership, and that’s because we’re both constantly looking for innovative ways to improve demand response for utilities while protecting customer comfort."
The Nest dispatch API integration is now live for EnergyHub’s utility customers.
