webSmartEnergy: Changing Industry Series: A Year in Review – Smart Energy Developments in 2016
Dec 06, 2016
OATI would like to thank all of its customers for their continued loyalty this past year. 2016 has been an impactful year in Smart Energy developments at OATI.
OATI continued to expand its portfolio of webSmartEnergy solution modules with the OATI Distributed Energy Resource Management Solution (DERMS) and our microgrid optimization solution.
Our innovative Microgrid Technology Center located in Bloomington, MN, which broke ground in Q3 2014, is now nearing completion. We hosted the first official tours during the IEEE ISGT Conference in September and began commissioning in late fall. We appreciate all who have followed along and supported us as we further our commitment to developing Smart Energy solutions.
OATI was heavily involved in the industry’s top Smart Grid events throughout the year. At the 2016 Energy Conference in October, OATI’s Farrokh Albuyeh, Senior Vice President of Smart Grid Projects, demonstrated how grid modernization is driving market changes in the industry. OATI thought leaders delivered grid modernization presentations at a variety of events, including the IEEE ISGT 2016 Conference, Microgrids Convergence Conference, the 2016 CAISO Stakeholder Symposium, and many more.
In 2017 the OATI Academy will host additional infosessions, trainings, and webinars for our loyal customers. We wish everyone Happy Holidays and look forward to continuing our commitment to service in 2017.
