Echelon joins the Demand Response and Smart Grid Coalition, offering metering systems and networking technology to utilities.


Echelon Corp. Demand Response and Smart Grid Coalition (DRSG). The DRSG is a trade association for companies that provide products and services in the demand response and smart grid area. The group aims to raise awareness among policymakers, stakeholders, and customers of how smart grid technologies and demand response practices will modernize and strengthen the national electricity system.

Echelon is the only company to provide both an advanced metering system and networking technology that can extend energy management applications down into individual devices inside homes and businesses.

Echelon’s Networked Energy Services (NES) advanced metering infrastructure system is used by utilities worldwide as part of their effort to modernize their grids.
