Abstract

As energy distribution conservation becomes increasingly more important, energy consumers (such as appliances, HVAC systems, etc.), energy generators (such as power plants, solar arrays, wind arrays), energy storage arrays (such as batteries, water storage systems, etc.), and energy distribution systems need the ability to be proactive in the use, generation, storage, and distribution of energy. This invention allows these systems to be proactive in communication of energy needs, availability and use.
