The partnership combines both companies' expertise to provide utilities with a comprehensive platform for real-time management and optimization of the electric grid.

Advanced Microgrid Solutions (AMS), a pioneer in the use of energy storage systems for electric utility grid support, and Opus One Solutions (Opus One), a leading smart grid software engineering company, announced an agreement to jointly offer a cutting edge suite of solutions for the distribution grid. The partnership combines both companies' expertise to provide utilities with a comprehensive platform for real-time management and optimization of the electric grid.

AMS and Opus One will pair advanced energy storage systems with real-time grid level energy management software to bring utilities an unmatched degree of grid visibility, control, and optimization. This industry-leading solution set will support widespread deployment and operation of distributed energy resources, including renewable energy. In addition to the benefits to utilities, the solutions provided by AMS and Opus One will help customers optimize their energy strategies while contributing to a stronger, more resilient grid.

The agreement brings together AMS's advanced analytics software, Armada™, and Opus One's GridOS®, a first-of-its-kind real-time distribution energy management platform. AMS will develop and manage distributed energy resources for commercial, industrial, and large aggregated customers. Opus One will oversee electrical grid energy management solutions, including grid and microgrid monitoring, control, and optimization.

The shift from centralized to distributed generation has presented utilities with new challenges, including the need to manage two-way powerflows and capacity issues. Grid edge solutions like those developed by AMS and Opus One are critical to helping utilities as they develop new business models in response to this changing environment.
