NV Energy Implements Itron’s Cloud-Based Demand-Side Management Solution

Utility Finalizes Implementation of Itron’s Next-generation Demand Response Management System, Modernizing Legacy Systems for Improved Load Management Capabilities and Enhanced Cybersecurity

LIBERTY LAKE, Wash. — Sept. 6, 2018 — Itron, Inc. (NASDAQ: ITRI), which is innovating the way utilities and cities manage energy and water, contracted with NV Energy to implement Itron’s IntelliSOURCE® Express™ demand response management system (DRMS).

Taking advantage of the latest technology in demand management, NV Energy successfully implemented IntelliSOURCE Express to manage the utility’s agricultural demand response program that is designed to help ensure a stable grid and energy supply. Itron helped migrate the Nevada utility’s legacy Comverge load management system to Itron’s newest cloud-based DRMS, which features enhanced cybersecurity capabilities.

IntelliSOURCE Express is a robust software platform that includes state-of-the-art cybersecurity protections for both the software and the devices it controls for the Nevada utility, which provides energy services to 1.3 million customers and more than 40 million tourists visiting the state each year.

“With IntelliSOURCE Express, NV Energy benefits immediately by using a powerful and secure software platform. Now, they have an extensible solution that enables the utility to incorporate two-way communications to devices, bring your own thermostat customer programs and integration of other distributed energy resources,” said Steve Hambric, Itron vice president of distributed energy management. “We are excited to extend our partnership with NV Energy to implement our latest demand response software to help them more effectively manage both energy supply and demand.”
