Demand response: SGRC’s new four-step roadmap to effective programs

By Metering International

SGRC Demand Response 4-step plan

Utilities with customer engagement demand response (DR) strategies that are supported with analysis of individual programs are much more likely to achieve customer engagement targets and realize utility and customer benefits, says a new study released by the Smart Grid Research Consortium (SGRC) this week.

SGRC says its evaluation of utility customer engagement DR programs has identified new technologies and opportunities for utilities with both advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) and older automated meter reading (AMR) and …read more

Micro-spectrometer C12666MA

Bridgewater NJ, USA & Hamamatsu City, Japan — Hamamatsu’s new micro-spectrometer model C12666MA is an ultra-compact spectrometer head developed based on the Hamamatsu MEMS and image sensor technologies.

The adoption of a newly designed optical system has achieved a remarkably small size, less than half the volume of the previous mini-spectrometer MS series (C10988MA-01).

This product is suitable for integration into a variety of devices, such as integration into printers and hand-held color monitoring devices that require color management. Continue reading
