Montreal (Quebec), March 18th, 2016 – The Centre of Excellence in Energy Efficiency (C3E) invests 250 000 $ in Systemex Energies for the commercialization of its SOFT-R3 technology that provides grid stability through its “ultrafast frequency response” technology by monitoring grid frequency and applying predetermined load modulation patterns which activates the load and turns it into a highly valuable asset to the grid operator. SOFT-R3 can be easily embedded into residential, commercial and industrial, single watt to megawatt, electrical loads. SOFT-R3 can be installed on any electrical device which power is not too sensitive when energy is provided. Water heaters, baseboard heaters and AC units are good examples, but the charging stations of electric vehicles are another obvious application especially given their energy intensity.
« This 250 000$ investment from C3E will allow to adapt recharges electric vehicles more intelligently through energy management and power both for the electricity network and the user » explains M. Donald Angers, C3E’s CEO.
«The unique SOFT-R3 technology will allow Systemex Energies to position itself advantageously with electric utilities worldwide. We believe we can become the benchmark of excellence in intelligent charging », says Systemex Energies’ Business Development Director, M. Marc-Antoine Pelletier.
