Stem brings the hardware options, the software, the expertise and support customers need to participate successfully in DR programs. And with hundreds of systems in more than 40 utility service territories, Stem seamlessly integrates with utility dispatch platforms.
Stem was the first energy storage provider to launch a battery storage Virtual Power Plant and integrate it into California wholesale markets as a DR resource. Stem’s Athena, the first AI for energy storage, has logged thousands of DR dispatches over tens of millions of runtime hours.
Stem helps Fortune 500 enterprises and commercial and industrial customers participate in leading DR programs across North America, including California’s Demand Response Auction Mechanism (DRAM), Massachusetts’ ConnectedSolutions program, and Ontario’s new Capacity Auction.
DR revenues are one of several potential value streams, and DR programs can shift over a project’s lifetime – as can tariffs, incentives, and wholesale market rules. Stem’s Athena software co-optimizes value streams in real time and adapts to changing conditions to maximize project ROI.
