Ziphany Onboard – Demand Response & Advanced Metering Coalition

Ziphany, LLC, a leading technology and software solutions provider to curtailment service providers, has joined the Demand Response & Advanced Metering Coalition.

Buffalo, NY, May 14, 2008 --( Ziphany has spent the last several years developing its demand response (DR) offerings to answer the needs of the rapidly growing industry. Now, as Ziphany grows its brand within the industry, the company has joined DRAM – the Demand Response & Advanced Metering Coalition - as a technology and software solutions back-office provider to DR companies.

Dan Delurey, Executive Director of DRAM, welcomed the addition of Ziphany to the organization. “The Demand Response industry is seeing significant growth, but it is also beginning to diversify, with new types of companies with new products and services operating in the demand response space,” said Delurey. Ziphany is an example of this, with its suite of services that helps enable demand response providers to make their operations more efficient and effective. As a result, Ziphany can play a vital role in helping the industry to grow in the coming years”.

DR is quickly changing industry, but it has not come about without its share of challenges; some of which are related to reliability, communication, and scalability. The decision to join DRAM came out of Ziphany’s realization of its growing role in addressing these challenges.

“Naturally, we’d like to service all DR providers, but most importantly, in order to ensure its future place in worldwide conservation efforts, we all need to work together to streamline DR processes, says Brian Palka, President and CEO of Ziphany. “A creative, technological approach to DR must collide with the plans and expertise of leading DR organizations, and we believe that DRAM provides great company for such affiliation.”
