As Saint John Energy nears a century of service, it is creating the utility of the future for its customers – driving innovation in smart energy products, forging new renewable energy opportunities and developing advanced artificial intelligence to create a smart grid for the city.
With its Smart Energy Project, it is leveraging artificial intelligence and other technologies to advance Saint John’s electric grid and to connect its evolving smart energy product line.
Its advanced smart grid will allow it to manage and shift peak demand by relying on artificial intelligence, weather forecasts and other data to smooth peak energy events. As it softens peak demand, it will help its wholesale supplier of electricity lower GHG emissions associated with high-emitting generation plants brought online in times of peak demand.
Saint John Energy’s smart grid is ushering in a broad array of intelligent devices and products – from hot water heaters to heat pumps, smart thermostats, advanced batteries and home electric vehicle chargers.
