Built on Echelon’s open standard, multi-application energy control networking platform, the deployments feature control operating system and application software and services from its local partners Grene Robotics and Power Meter Technics.

The micro grid deployments involve managing demand and energy supply mix for a residential community and a retail mall to deliver reliable service, the company said.

The model micro grid deployments are at Palm Meadows in Hyderabad, India, and Clearwater Mall in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Palm Meadows is an 86-acre integrated gated community with 335 homes and residential services and Clearwater Mall in Johannesburg is a retail building with more than 240 stores.
