Research Projects

Energent engages in research projects to extend the firm’s capability in energy management information systems (EMIS) and engage more deeply in ‘smart grid’ initiatives.

Energent also undertakes customer-specific product development to create customized energy information solutions. If you have a current research project or are considering a new initiative and would like to get Energent involved, please contact us.

The Energy Hub Research Project

Participants in the Energy Hub Management System (EHMS) project are working to develop a Internet-based information backbone for enabling any energy-consuming building (called an Energy Hub) to make real-time decisions to optimize their energy supply/demand.

In essence, the EHMS will extend the electricity grid to incorporate and engage the Energy Hub as an active "smart" participant. At Energent we're currently working on an Energy Hub Research Project!
