pTrack™ DER

Distributed Energy Resources or DER’s are assets such as battery storage systems, natural gas generators, solar, wind and geo-thermal technologies that allow you to help balance the Ontario grid.

Effective use of your asset can generate significant savings and revenue via participation in IESO programs such as the ICI program for Global Adjustment (GA) savings.

pTrack™ for Distributed Energy 
Resources

To optimize DER solutions such as Battery Energy Storage and take full advantage of all the benefits a DER can provide, you need the right software. Edgecom Energy’s pTrack™ DER software maximizes DER performance in a few ways:

Advanced Algorithm and API

pTrack’s algorithms model the grid in real time and make predictions of demand, energy prices and other events on the grid. This data allows pTrack to optimize how the DER should be operated.

Network Operation Center

The pTrack™ operation center, monitors the grid in real time via a secure connection and helps you optimize your resources in real time.

Advantages of pTrack™ DER

Large energy consumers can reduce rates, improve power reliability and reduce their dependence on unreliable power grids. These systems also help the power grid by providing fast responding voltage regulation and other ancillary services to the local and regional power grid.

  • Reduce Energy Costs

  • Improved energy reliability

  • Improved power quality

Ontario Class A Customers

pTrack’s accurate prediction engine has been maximizing Global Adjustment savings since 2016, never missing an Industrial Conservation Initiative CP (Coincident Peak) and minimizing the number of times curtailment is required to maximize savings. hit all 5 CP’s

pTrack™ Combined with a Distributed Energy Resource Can:

  • Lower Energy Costs with improved visibility

  • Improve energy reliability in your operations

  • Provide access to other IESO revenue streams while help to balance the Ontario grid

FAQ

What is pTrack™ ?

pTrack™ is Edgecom Energy's ICI program peak prediction service for Class A consumers in Ontario. It uses machine learning to accurately predict electricity pricesthe top 5 CP’s (coincident peaks) of the year . Our advanced NOC (Network Operation Center) and API (Application Programable Interface) can then send this information to your devices on site assets to optimize how they behave to maximize savings.

What is a DER?

Distributed Energy Resources are commonly referred to as DERs. These are devices such as battery storage systems, NG generators, solar, wind and geo-thermal technologies which are usually installed behind the meter on a customer's site and are used to offset demand on the grid and maximize energy savings opportunities.

What is the right DER solution for my facility?

DERs are not a one size fits all solution. There are pro’s and cons to each technology. Often the proposed pricing model which includes the length of term, shared savings percentage and potential revenue streams help identify the best alternative
