Carrier and REGEN Energy Inc.™, developer of the patented wireless Swarm Energy Management™ electrical demand management and dynamic load control technology, have signed an agreement to provide a field-installed accessory to assist with energy management on Carrier’s commercial rooftop units. Carrier, the world’s leader in high technology heating, air-conditioning and refrigeration solutions, is a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).
Swarm Energy Management™ by REGEN Energy can now be integrated into the Carrier® WeatherMaker®, WeatherMaster®, and WeatherExpert™ product lines, dramatically reducing peak electrical usage when installed as accessories to these rooftop units in commercial and industrial properties. Swarm Energy Management controllers utilize REGEN Energy’s patented swarm logic to provide intelligent load management and substantial energy savings – all without sacrificing occupant comfort. This system programs each unit in the network to communicate with each other every few minutes, with individual elements making an operating decision every 10 minutes to ensure units support the most efficient use of energy.
This accessory offers customers the ability to avoid load stacking and to smooth out spikes in power usage. In addition, the system offers customers the opportunity to participate in Automated Demand Response requests from local utility providers to further reduce peak energy demand. The energy management technology also enables Carrier customers to easily access their analytics through a secure, web-based portal.
“Our customers turn to Carrier for market leading, energy efficient solutions,” said Greg Alcorn, vice president, commercial sales and marketing, Carrier. “Our agreement is a significant step forward in energy management and we are delighted to add the Swarm Energy Management technology into our product offerings.”
