Demand Response

In smart grids, a fundamental shift is occurring for utilities. The historical one way electric power system (with a linear relation between generation, transmission, distribution and retail) is transforming into an autonomous, integrated and interactive energy cloud. In this energy cloud, multiple actors collaborate and compete to offer advanced and integrated services like demand response management, smart meter (data) management, and grid optimization and automation.

There is a need for common platforms and shared real-time data (and actuation) throughout this energy cloud to be able to create such encompassing services. The World Wide Streams platform is designed to support multiple stakeholders to collaborate in a marketplace of real-time information and actuation streams. The platform allows energy cloud actors to compete by onboarding and applying their specialized algorithms and application logic.
