Embedded Systems Manager


Embedded Systems Manager


Who we are:

Innovari has built an advanced technology platform that helps utility companies manage and deliver reliable, affordable energy in real time. The company’s Interactive Energy Platform™ (IEP™) uses artificial intelligence, big-data analytics, proprietary optimization routines and deep knowledge of the utility business to deliver capacity and address demand variables. Innovari’s solution, which adds intelligence to both the generation and consumption side of the grid, behaves like a virtual power plant and securely sits alongside other regulated utility company assets and business models. With extensive machine-learning capabilities, the Interactive Energy platform adapts quickly to demand changes such as those brought about by weather, rapid urban growth and the inconsistencies of alternative energy generation.

Innovari is conducting utility projects on four continents and has 15 utility partners on its expanding list of customers. The company has signed contracts to provide hundreds of MW of electricity capacity to its utility partners, mostly in the form of demand reduction at large customer facilities. Today Innovari counts four of the top eight U.S. retailers as part of its demand management programs which are integral to the IEP system.

Innovari is headquartered in Portland, Oregon with additional U.S. offices in Wisconsin, Missouri and manufacturing centers in Austin, Texas and in Taipei, Taiwan.
