About us

Murata Energy Solutions Americas, Inc.

Murata Energy Solutions Americas, Inc., a subsidiary of Murata Electronics North America, Inc., delivers end-to-end solutions combining Murata’s wireless IoT hardware with cloud-based software to the Energy market. Murata Electronics North America acquired Vedero Software on February 23, 2015. Vedero now operates as a subsidiary of Murata Energy Solutions Americas.

Based in Dallas, Texas, Murata Energy Solutions Americas combines state-of-the-art cloud-based software with wireless sensor technology to automate power load management, peak load management, emergency power supply monitoring and test, and metering and verification for commercial buildings including hospitals, educational facilities, and datacenters. Offered as subscriptions to a Software-as-a-Service platform, our solutions provide access and control anywhere there is an Internet connection – be that in a facility’s operation center or across the globe.

Previously, commercial buildings were ill-suited for automated load management and participation in demand response programs due to the relatively small loads that were present coupled with an inability to shut off building systems because of concerns regarding tenant comfort and satisfaction. The PowerConnect solutions overcome these obstacles in three main ways:

  • The PowerConnect platform aggregates multiple buildings into a single demand response or load management entity with enough curtailable load for demand response participation to make economic sense.
  • The use of industrial-strength wireless technologies reduces installation costs to lower the amount of curtailable load required to generate an acceptable ROI.
  • Rather than simply turning building system devices off, our PowerConnect platform has the intelligence to adjust set points to reduce power consumption meaning that oftentimes tenants are unaware power is being reduced.

For hospitals or other facilities with on-site generating capabilities, the PowerConnect platform provides the ability to automate the testing and monitoring of both generators and automatic transfer switches. Combined with PowerConnect’s reporting capabilities, accreditation and environmental audits are greatly simplified.
