Connected Devices Request for Information
If you are a qualified and experienced vendor with a new connected device that would help our customers improve their energy efficiency, or help them earn money by using less energy through demand response, please respond to our request for information and tell us about it.
We’re looking for “smart” devices or appliances that can be controlled remotely through the Internet, or a platform or service that can integrate with and enhance existing connected devices. Base-building systems are not included, unless they’re required to install the connected device.
Please share your interest in and qualifications to supply us with connected devices and/or customer-facing, Con Edison-facing, or software platforms for managing connected devices that are device-agnostic for compatibility. You may submit additional technologies separately.
This is not intended for third-party providers or integrators of connected devices that you do not manufacture, such as providing a solution for a third-party product.
Connected devices used for smart usage rewards (demand response) must have a platform that can integrate with our Demand Response Management System, using an application program interface (API) provided by Con Edison.
