Programs that Work

No matter where you are in your demand response journey, creating and optimizing your program is easy with Virtual Peaker. One platform, a plethora of devices, real-time data, and reporting that you can trust to help you make the right decisions.

Event Calling At Your Fingertips

Calling events with Virtual Peaker is simple. With the ability to call events for all devices or build out smaller groups we call “platoons” for individualized events. Once the devices are selected you can then set the goal of the event and set when you would like it to run.

The Devices You Want

Our device partners are among the most innovative manufacturers in the industry. We are constantly adding more partners, and working with our current ones to optimize their devices on our platform.

Find Value in Reporting

Once your program is going, it is crucial to measure your success. Our reporting offers device-level data, customer performance data, event aggregate data, and real-time connectivity reporting, and more! Build a successful program that is informed by data.
