Consert Inc. was formed in 2008 and offers the most complete real-time, energy management and conservation ecosystem available today. Consert’s Energy Management Solution gives energy conservation the attributes of generation and offers utilities the opportunity to gain operational savings, address peak load with measurable and verifiable certainty, and realize new revenue streams, all by empowering consumers to set, monitors and reduce energy consumption.
Over the years, Consert has proven itself time and time again with major utilities, including the nation’s largest municipal power and gas company. In addition to full-scale commercial program initiated as pilots for among others, Fayetteville Public Works Commission and Wake Electric Membership Corporation, Consert has partnered with CPS Energy of San Antonio – and its more than 700,000 customers – to reduce peak demand by more than 250 megawatts over the next three years.
What people are saying about Consert
“The Consert Solution is the step beyond what everyone else is doing [with smart grid]. It adds the economic component of generation, where everyone else is looking at the transmission and distribution side of things.” – Keith Lynch, Power Supply Manager, Fayetteville Public Works
“Consert’s technology connects homes and small businesses through existing communications networks, enabling utilities to balance electricity demand, increase energy efficiency and drive consumer savings.” – Kevin Skillern, Managing Director of Venture Capital, GE Energy Financial Services
“A variety of companies have been trying to find the secret sauce for making energy management somewhat (even slightly) interesting for consumers. Consert seems like it has at least part of those crucial features. The service is automated, so the consumer doesn’t have to do anything. The consumer can see 10 to 20 percent savings on their energy bill. And in areas where dial-up is prevalent, the service also offers a faster Internet connection.” – Katie Fehrenbacher, GigaOm, “Consert: The 3G Smart Home Startup”
