BluWave-ai was awarded a contract to advance the City of Summerside’s system utility manager software to integrate a new 26‐megawatt solar and battery project in 2021.
The company’s focus is on green technology such as renewable energy and electric transportation. Their solutions apply artificial intelligence (AI) cloud software to optimize the cost, carbon footprint and reliability of renewable and non-renewable energy sources.
They work with customers such as utilities, fleet operators and electricity system operators to improve their energy-related decision-making to decrease costs and their carbon footprint.
In August 2022, Summerside, in partnership with BluWave-ai, hosted the first solar energy powered concert in North America. The concert, with Canadian musician Bryan Adams, was held at Credit Union Place and ran indoors at night using solar and battery solutions.
This event was part of the Canadian Smart Grid AI Center of Excellence at the City of Summerside, a shared project with BluWave-ai and Summerside. The Center of Excellence works with Summerside’s wind farm, solar array, battery storage, grid connection, and smart metering assets.
The cloud-based AI optimization platform delivered a 100 percent solar powered concert. They were able to predict solar production during the day of the concert and store sufficient solar capacity in a battery to cover the projected energy demand, such as lighting, audio equipment, and air conditioning.
