PR Newswire, October 04. SANTA CLARA, Calif., Oct. 4, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the demand side management (DSM) industry, Frost & Sullivan recognizes REstore with the 2017 North America Product Leadership Award for its products, FlexPondTM, a data-driven platform that enables utilities to interact with residential, commercial and industrial (C&I) end users, REstore is a relative newcomer to North America, but has exhibited tremendous success in Europe, with offices in Benelux, France, the United Kingdom, and Germany. The company recently opened an office in San Francisco, California. Distributed energy resources (DER), as part of the energy generation mix, are steadily increasing. DER consists of distributed photovoltaic (PV), wind, combined heat and power (CHP), generator sets (gensets), and industrial batteries. Power curtailment programs in the form of interruptible load, capacity bidding, and behavioral demand response (DR) are included as well and are expected to play a greater role in the near future. In addition to end users benefitting from DER, progressive utilities have also seen significant savings from these projects.
