Microgrid interface developer Xendee has partnered with the Department of Energyâ€™s Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory to develop a platform for energy management and analytics to support Department of Defense applications.
TheÂ Facility Energy Saving and Security Technology initiative tasks a team that includes Xendee, LLNL and the University of Michigan – Dearborn to create an energy management system intended to collate data from various sources to help DOD users visualize and monitor energy efficiency, Xendee said Monday.
The company will integrate its microgrid technology with the FEST distributed-energy system and help establish metrics for efficiency, security and resiliency that will enable full-spectrum energy operations and planning.Â
Specifically, the team will develop concepts for integrating large amounts of information such as smart meter data that will be used to gauge energy recovery following natural and man-made events.
Adib Nasle, CEO of Xendee, said the integrated energy management technology is meant to address the DOD's â€œsmarter energyâ€ needs that require recasting big data from energy and resources and using those for cognitive co-processors that optimize the cyber, physical and economic domains.
The team will receive support from the White Sands Missile Range for the FEST effort.
Headquartered in San Diego, California, Xendee develops generative design algorithms for automating portfolio optimization and techno-economic modeling applications.
