Solutions / EMS-Energy Management System
Energy Management System
Ubiik’s Energy Management System (EMS) is an integrated vertical solution leveraging Ubiik’s own connectivity and cloud platform, to monitor and dispatch customer’s power loads and distributed energy resources (DERs) to constantly bring values to the customer.
With Ubiik’s Energy Management System (EMS) deployed, it simultaneously delivers cost savings, energy security, additional revenue stream,
/ Behind-the-meter (BTM) batteries are connected behind the utility meter of commercial, industrial, or residential customers, primarily aiming at electricity bill savings or provide power security in case of power outages. However, in countries with deregulated
electricity markets, BTM can also participate in the wholesale
markets to provide capacity or ancillary services, by cutting the
cutometer’s load, or directly exporting electricity to grid system.
/ Front-the-meter (FTM) batteries are interconnected to distribution
or transmission networks or in connection with a generation asset.
They provide applications required by system operators as e.g.
ancillary services or network load relief.
Smart Battery Management
For customers needing basic load management,
Ubiik’s EMS can help them monitor energy consumption in real-time. Customers can also remote control
major appliances to reduce charges during peak demand hours.
In areas where a demand response program is available, our system can also help customers generate additional revenue by automatically or manually reducing load as needed by the electricity grid operators.
/ Optimize power usage (bill)
/ Participate in the demand response market
Customers can have the option to deploy EMS solution
with multiple scenarios:
Ubiik’s Virtual Power Plant (VPP) platform provides EMS customers with the tools and services needed to access the wholesale electricity markets or ancillary service programs. It also helps bring value for local utilities:
/ Defer distribution network CapEx
To deal with growing loads or higher penetration of renewable tie-ins, aggregating Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) or Demand Responses (DRs) can defer or replace the need of distribution network projects. This reduces network costs significantly by reducing distribution constraints at times of peak demand in specific grid areas.
/ Mitigate transmission congestion issue
Utilities can create VPPs by aggregating for each substation, feeder/section, or even transformer. When a power flow issue occurs or a potential outage is identified, the SCADA/DMS
system can execute the appropriate VPP to help address the
power flow issue.
/ Ensure capacity/resource adequacy
Utility companies are normally required to fulfill Resource Adequacy (RA) requirements based on a forecast of future peak demand and reserves. They are obligated to maintain a certain amount of capacity/reserve available at different time-frames
to ensure power reliability. By aggregating DERs or DRs, utilities can fulfill RA requirements without procurement from the
wholesale market or without building additional new power generation capacity.
