DICKINSON, N.D., Aug. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- This past week the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office issued a patent to the Steffes Corporation for its design of a system to use domestic water heaters and other appliances to store renewable wind and solar energy.
This patent was awarded for the Steffes "GETS" Dynamic Dispatch™ energy storage system which provides utilities with second-to-second precision control (0 to 100% charging) of fleets of specially instrumented water heaters and appliances. Cloud aggregation of the water heaters makes this fleet appear as a fast-ramp virtual generator to the utility operator who matches the charge / discharge of the water heaters to the volatile supply of renewable wind and solar energy. Modulating energy in this way not only optimizes the utilization and storage of renewable energy but simultaneously helps to stabilize the grid.
We are excited to assist utilities and homeowners integrate larger amounts of green, renewable energy into their systems," said Paul Steffes, CEO of the Steffes Corporation. "With dozens of successful trials under our belt, we have been able to perfect our Dynamic Dispatch™ energy storage system. The interest by utilities has been just amazing!"

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
