AutoGrid, a flexibility management software provider for the global energy industry, announced today a collaboration with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to bring artificial intelligence-powered distributed energy management to its energy-industry customers.

AutoGrid, which recently became a member of the AWS Partner Network (APN), will employ the suite of AWS IoT services in its AutoGrid Flex™ platform to detect, collect, organize, and run sophisticated data analytics. AWS services will deliver new insights into operations across energy facilities that will optimize production and improve process efficiencies of distributed energy resources and demand response.

AutoGrid’s customers will use Amazon SageMaker, a fully-managed service that provides developers and data scientists with the ability to build, train and deploy machine learning models quickly. Those models will help optimize operations in a modular design that can be scaled for all types of customers—from large investor-owned utilities to small municipal utilities, electric cooperatives and retail electricity suppliers.

“Our customers in the power and utility space are increasingly looking in applying IoT, machine learning, and artificial intelligence to improve their productivity and efficiency. We’re delighted to welcome AutoGrid to the APN Program to accelerate the adoption of AutoGrid Flex across the global power and utility industries.”Said Rolf Gibbels, Global Head of Worldwide Business Development – Utilities, Amazon Web Services, Inc.

AutoGrid’s relationship with AWS would reportedly allow AutoGrid clients to rapidly deploy new services in demand-response, microgrid management, and electric vehicles (EV) charging management for their end customers.

“We are very pleased to see a deeper relationship between AutoGrid and AWS,” said Austin R. Bryan, Senior Director of Innovation at CLP. “As an APN member, AutoGrid will help us leverage artificial intelligence-based flexible energy applications to benefit our customers across our region, including in Hong Kong, South East Asia, Greater China, India and Australia. This ultimately allows us to focus our efforts on delivering key business outcomes for customers knowing we have a robust, reliable and secure technology platform for running our data-driven applications.”

“AutoGrid operates one of the world’s largest AI-powered flexible energy resources optimization networks. This collaboration is part of our strategy to develop relationships with technology leaders like AWS to accelerate our global expansion. And it provides significant cost-saving and time-to-market benefits to our mutual customers.”Said Dr. Amit Narayan, AutoGrid Chief Executive Officer.
