Savant Power’s Bold Approach to Smart Energy
A rising number of power outages caused by an aging energy infrastructure and weather volatility along with a growing concern for the environment are driving significant investment in more resilient and sustainable power solutions. These factors, combined with an increase in renewable generation and EV adoption are forcing a paradigm shift in power distribution and consumption in order to lower cost and provide improved resiliency.
Savant Power brings a robust and scalable software platform to manage distributed energy resources such as solar, storage and flexible load management. By reimagining the concept of smart energy through an advanced automated platform, Savant Power brings to market the key components needed to achieve a smart living experience as well as a modernized energy infrastructure.
“The way we produce and consume power is changing in ways not seen since the inception of the grid well over 100 years ago,” said Anna Demeo, President, Savant Power. “Thomas Edison famously remarked that he hoped we didn’t wait until supplies of oil and coal were exhausted before utilizing alternative resources such as solar and wind. Now, Savant Power is poised to make these solutions a reality alongside GE lighting, a Savant company, while improving quality of life and energy resiliency around the world.”
