Direct Energy Business and Phoenix Technologies Partner to Create PowerCommand™, the Next Generation in Energy Management Technology
Pittsburgh, PA... Direct Energy Business, one of North America's largest commercial and industrial retail energy providers, and its strategic partner, Phoenix Energy Technologies, based in Irvine, CA, are announcing the release of a joint offering: PowerCommandTM.
PowerCommand is a next-generation enhancement to Direct Energy's PowerPortfolio®offering, already well-known in the industry. Powered by Phoenix's EnterpriseDX®, PowerCommand is a robust enterprise energy system that drives real time decisions to optimize a customer's energy portfolio on both the supply and demand sides.
PowerCommand delivers the first marriage between real time energy supply and real time energy demand. Customers have direct access to the wholesale energy market and real time demand data - all in a single interface.
"We were able to take a sophisticated energy procurement offering from Direct Energy Business and combine it with Phoenix's EnterpriseDX technology to deliver a product that can change the way customers use energy," says Mike Senff, Vice President of Direct Energy Business. "PowerCommand is the full integration of demand and supply that will materially increase the ability of energy managers to optimize both energy use and procurement."
Lisa M. Varga, CEO of Phoenix Technologies, is excited about what this product means to the way companies think about their energy usage. "The PowerCommand offering is a game changer and we are excited to bring it to the marketplace with one of the leaders in the industry. Having the ability to see what customers use, when they use it, and to then find the best prices, all in one place is truly going to revolutionize the way companies think about consumption," she said.
PowerCommand will be officially launched at the EEI conference this Sunday, March 20th, in Atlanta, GA. For more information on PowerCommand, please visit http://www.phoenixet.com/power-command.htm.
