Energy platform developer Innovari has kicked off a demand side management project in Argentina in partnership with Punto Tigre Mall, a shopping center in Buenos Aires.

The company says its Interactive Energy Platform was recently deployed on site at the mall within the service territory of Argentine electricity distributor Edenor (Buenos Aires, Argentina).

The intention is to improve the site’s interaction with the power grid in terms of energy efficiency and performance, and ensure that renewable and distributed energy resources can be integrated more easily.

“Working with Innovari [Austin, TX, USA] on this initiative will support our commitment of excellence to better serve our customers while making the best use of our energy resources,” said Adrian Simonotti, the president and chief executive of Galeria El Yaguarete and owner of Punto Tigre Mall.

Innovari claims there is a growing need for its technology, with peak time power demands and extreme weather conditions putting continued stress on the power grid.

It believes the use of its platform will help Punto Tigre to meet reliability, financial, efficiency and sustainability goals.

“We’re looking forward to serving Punto Tigre and Argentina’s grid to ensure long-term grid reliability and affordable power that meets their exact business needs, without impacting operations,” said Manuel Arancibia, Innovari president of Latin America.
