RANCHO CUCAMONGA, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, December 5, 2022 / — MicroNOC Inc. announces its Year End conference in Rancho Mirage

The conference will discuss Grid Balancing, Super Chargers, and Electrification Regulatory Overview. For investors and building managers, our speakers will discuss top level overview on the must know building code changes and compliance reporting requirements. Coverages include Federal, State, Local, Utility, and Electricity markets. Of course, the financial benefits of the Clean Electricity Incentives will detail incentives from the regulatory policy enforcements including new passing of Inflation Reduction Act and what that means to you.

We will discuss how the IRA enables a New Real Estate Opportunity by turning buildings into ‘Clean Virtual Power Stations’. How to leverage your existing portfolio, profession, and expertise into a sustainable income source for self and communities as we transition into electrification in the USA and do our part to give a better tomorrow for future generations.

MicroNOC also takes pride in announcing US Patent 11177661 covering systems to manage power consumption from a grid with a building switchgear; an independent system organization (ISO) meter coupled to the building switchgear, the ISO meter including a telemetry unit to communicate with an ISO; and an energy storage system (ESS) coupled to the building switchgear, wherein the ESS selectively provides power in response to a customer power demand to prevent a customer grid power consumption from spiking and peaking at grid imbalance highest cost on peak times.

The system advantageously mitigates the cost for both grid and customers is to reverse some of the grid balancing reliance from power energy supply side to demand load side. As each commercial, industrial, and agricultural customer’s demand and energy usage are being balanced and managed using the power consumption management method stated above, the meter(s), resource equipment, and load data of customer’s time of use of grid power versus the time of use of the optimized and controllable resource capacity are then networked in an aggregated energy pool with location identification like a map providing utilities and grid operators real-time information of reliable and available energy at specific times. This synchronization with grid operation method reduces the need to rely on excess and expensive power supply for grid operators while reducing fuel costs for power producers with more accuracy on load capacity needs. Other advantages may include the following as well. Buildings equipped with QBR capable systems helps to defer/reduce the upgrade cost for utilities because the QBR system better matches demand with supply and reduces the extra capacity that the grid must hold in reserve for peak power consumption. As the system incorporates a high degree of control for all parties, grid operators can decrease/defer the cost of upgrading grid capacity. An aggregation of smart switchgears in buildings turn the buildings into smart powerplant, further reducing utility upgrade costs.

The patent allowance was procured by the IP law firm of PatentPC in Silicon Valley. Mr. Bao Tran, Principal at PatentPC, congratulated MicroNOC on its patent award and noted that:

“Having a patent application can be a valuable asset for a startup, as it can provide protection for the company’s innovative ideas and technologies. This can be particularly important for attracting investors, as it can demonstrate the company’s commitment to protecting its intellectual property and can potentially increase the company’s valuation. Additionally, having a patent application can also help to prevent competitors from copying the company’s ideas and can provide leverage in negotiations with potential partners or licensees. Overall, securing a patent application early on in a startup’s development can be an important step in protecting and growing the business.

Securing a patent early can provide several advantages for a startup. One of the main advantages is that it can provide legal protection for your idea and prevent others from copying or using it without your permission. Additionally, having a patent can give your startup credibility and can potentially increase its valuation when seeking funding from investors.

Another advantage of early filing is that you are not required to disclose your “best mode” of implementing the invention in the application. The “best mode” requirement is a rule that states that the inventor must disclose the best way they know to make and use the invention. By filing your application early, you can continue to explore different implementation options and can potentially improve your invention without the need to disclose it in the application.
