Solar Storage Project by Vaughan Headquartered Utility Firm, PowerStream, Connects Neighbours

Solar Storage Project by Vaughan Headquartered Utility Firm, PowerStream, Connects Neighbours | Doing business in Vaughan | Scoop.it

Calling your home a power plant because a few solar panels have been slapped on the roof is a bit of a stretch.

But what if your home also had a way to store that solar energy and was connected to tens, hundreds, even thousands of other homes in a community?

What if your local electric utility could manage how that collection of houses deploys the power they generate and store?

You’d have, in essence, a virtual power plant — part of what visionaries like Tesla Motors founder Elon Musk call the “Internet of energy.”

It’s a future that Neetika Sathe, vice-president of smart grid technologies at PowerStream, is starting to build today.

Clearbridge Mobile, an award-winning mobile app design and development studio, and Urban Airship, the leading mobile engagement platform, today announced a technology partnership that will bridge the disconnect between initial app development and post-launch user engagement.

Successful mobile application projects require solutions that consider both the development of the app, and strategies for engaging customers and measuring market performance. There is often a gap between mobile application production and user engagement strategies once the app has launched, requiring brands to source multiple vendors to cover both development and post-development. The partnership eliminates this gap, allowing clients to have their mobile engagement strategy built-in to the original development project at the product definition stage.
