Emulate is excited to announce our partnership with National Information Solutions Cooperative (NISC), a leading provider of software solutions for utility cooperatives in the US. We anticipate pilots with beta participants will commence before year-end, at which point the API will be made available to the rest of NISC’s Members.

Empowering Co-ops with DER Management

“Our partnership with NISC is a pivotal step toward empowering co-ops to harness the full potential of distributed energy resources,” said Shwan Lamei, CEO of Emulate Energy. “The increase in generation from intermittent renewables introduces volatility that can be managed by leveraging the growing number of residential DERs. These resources will play a key role in reducing energy transition costs and ensuring a world-class consumer experience.”

Enthusiastic Support from NISC

David Bonnett, Chief Solutions Officer at NISC, shared his enthusiasm for the partnership.

“Our Members are continuing to see increases in consumer adoption of Distributed Energy Resources (DERs). Now, more than ever, they need a solution to help them better understand and manage these resources, and we’re thrilled to partner with leading DERMS providers like Emulate to provide our Members a way to manage this.”

NISC launched its DERMS Partnership Program in 2023 to integrate leading DERMS providers with its suite of solutions, including NISC Marketing, Multi-Channel Messenger, Meter Data Management, and SmartHub. This collaboration between Emulate and NISC will expand NISC’s Distributed Energy Resource Management System (DERMS) Partnership Program, enabling NISC Members to better manage the increasing adoption of Distributed Energy Resources (DERs).
