Unprecedented changes are occurring to the electricity grid motivated by environmental priorities, renewable integration, electric vehicle adoption, and Smart Grid deployment.

Meeting the challenges created by these changes requires more than smarter use of electricity, it requires responsible use. Demand Responsible™ is utilizing Smart Grid and the modern Web to enable responsive demand using consumer outreach; classic demand response; dynamic rates and market signals; energy efficiency; and smart integration of storage and PEVs, enabling a cleaner energy future.

To support responsible demand, Olivine delivers technology, operations, programs, and consulting services in an innovative wrap-around approach to tackle all sides of a problem from regulatory to implementation down to consumer use cases. This approach, part of the Olivine Way™, allows Olivine to make a bigger impact by ensuring ultimate value in the projects we undertake.

That’s why Olivine has developed capabilities to support pilots and activities in the wholesale DR market. Olivine’s Remote Intelligent Gateway (RIG), for example, has been fully validated by the California ISO. Olivine is also a registered Demand Response Provider (DRP) Scheduling Coordinator (SC) in the California market and is pursuing similar certifications in other markets. Maintaining these applications and credentials allows Olivine great flexibility in helping clients navigate through myriad issues in DR implementation — from regulatory, to design, operations and more, Olivine has the tools to “wrap-around” the problem.
