Portus Preselected for 3551 Entrepreneur Program in Wuhan China

Portus Meets with Partners and Steering Committee in Wuhan.

Wuhan - March 7, 2014 - Portus CEO Tim Lindquist presented to the Wuhan 3551 Entrepreneur Program Committee in Wuhan today. This followed a number of meetings with Wuhan technology and business partners during the week ahead of the committee meeting.

Portus is pursuing an Intelligent Energy vision that revolves around intelligence in the home that manages all residential demand response potential and storage capacity, such as that embodied in electric vehicles, in a holistic manner. Portus also promoted an intelligent integrated management approach to diverse demand response and storage capacity resources available at the residential level. By taking such an approach, Portus' solution can respond to the demands of intermittent renewables, by managing electric vehicle charging to occur at times of increased wind or solar generation, or by providing demand response at times of insufficient supply. Careful management of these processes will allow Portus to deliver firmness of response, and also to respond to caps on upstream assets, such as distribution transformers and feeders. Ultimately, Portus technology can deliver more capacity to the grid when needed, and enable greater penetration of intermittent renewables onto the grid.
