Connected adhoc Smart Appliances
In the era of renewable energy, the Internet of Things, Big Data, Artificial Intelligence, CaSA is a Canadian company that set out to disrupt consumer’s relationship with electricity throughout the world.
CaSA designs and manufactures residential energy management equipment to provide intelligent control over a home’s electricity use while providing grid operator-level software solutions to shape and control demand.
At the heart of it all: a commitment to comfort, cybersecurity and efficiency.
Because electricity is the life and blood of our modern society. It’s what makes us happy, what keeps us safe and makes us comfortable. We’ve never been so dependent on electricity and electricity has never been so relevant in its role for the planet’s future.
But the advent of renewables, electric vehicles, smart meters and so on means the grid is now asked to perform a job it was never designed to do. That’s where CaSA’s cutting edge technology comes into play.
By making high-demand loads controllable and communicating, CaSA enables homeowners to engage with their energy provider, allowing demand to be modulated without sacrificing comfort, privacy or security.
CaSA’s patented and proprietary control systems and algorithms mean that potential is only used if it’s available. No compromise on comfort !
CaSA is the only North American IoT provider to have successfully completed the CSA Cybersecurity Verification Program. When we say safe, we mean it.
Nothing beats Wikipedia for simple explanations ! Here is a definition of what “demand-side management” is:
Demand response is a change in the power consumption of an electric utility customer to better match the demand for power with the supply. Electric energy cannot be easily stored, so utilities have traditionally matched demand and supply by throttling the production rate of their power plants, taking generating units on or off line, or importing power from other utilities. There are limits to what can be achieved on the supply side, because some generating units can take a long time to come up to full power, some units may be very expensive to operate, and demand can at times be greater than the capacity of all the available power plants put together. Demand response seeks to adjust the demand for power instead of adjusting the supply.
CaSA creates a link between you and your energy provider for DR programs. You can now play an active role in the relationship, one that goes beyond just paying the bill !
CaSA ensures optimal comfort, while allowing your utility to leverage the energy potential of your home during peak demand times.
Thanks to CaSA’s patented algorithms, our equipment can project the expected energy usage according to your house’s performance, your habits and the weather. This means we’re taking the guesswork out of creating your schedules, setbacks or other energy saving habits.
Your privacy is in good hands: CaSA is the only energy management device operator that leaves you all rights to your data.
That’s right, you own all your data, we don’t.
Demand-Side Management for dummies
Electricity demand varies from one hour to the next, specially when its very cold or very hot outside. Just like morning traffic, we tend to have the same habits in the morning and in the evening, with our homes running idle during the work day.
For your energy provider, things are a bit more complicated as electricity generation cannot be modulated as easily as you turn off the lights at home. So electricity is generated in excess, typically in a “worst case” scenario.
If however we harness the consumption of a very large number of smaller electric loads, thanks to some of CaSA’s unique technology, we can direct electricity demand where it’s needed for comfort while ensuring the remainder of demand is put off to a time where there’s less of a peak.
This means electricity generation can be more predictable, be less wasteful and more environmentally friendly, all while reducing the energy provider’s cost, and inevitably your bill.
