US based Consert, a provider of energy management technology for residences and small businesses, has signed a commercialization agreement with the Fayetteville Public Works Commission (FPWC).

Consert provides consumers with real-time wireless energy management technology to conserve energy and present it back to the utility as a source of power generation to improve the efficiency, reliability and safety of electricity delivery and use.

FPWC, a municipal electric provider in North Carolina, US will provide the Consert technology for voluntary adoption to interested residential and small commercial members.

The company’s energy management technology allows the customers to control their high energy use appliances from any internet web-portal and authorize FPWC to cycle their appliances off for brief periods during peak energy consumption events.

Prior to the commercialization deal, FPWC conducted a one-year pilot program with the company, performing control events to briefly turn off high energy use devices during times of projected peak energy demand.

Consert CEO and president Jack Roberts said with the company’s solutions, customers will manage their energy consumption and at the same time support the future of energy integration and clean technology.
