LOS ANGELES, Nov. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- CODA Energy, a developer and manufacturer of highly adaptive, scalable and reliable core energy products, announced a new relationship today with Stem, a leading provider and innovator of energy optimization services. Deployed as part of Stem's energy optimization system, CODA's lithium-ion battery architecture with battery management system (BMS) technology is a part of Stem's solution for effective management of energy usage and cost of electric power for the InterContinental Mark Hopkins Hotel and the InterContinental San Francisco Hotel. The deployment marks the first commercial collaboration between CODA and Stem.



"We're excited to be at the core of Stem's innovative energy optimization solution for a forward-thinking and energy conscious hotel group such as InterContinental," said Ed Solar, CODA Energy senior vice president. "Our project with Stem showcases the adaptability of our core technology, and demonstrates how it helps to solve real energy challenges. We look forward to applying our cost-effective energy solutions to future Stem and other energy optimization projects that mitigate impact on the electrical grid and commercial electricity budgets."

The Stem systems delivered to the InterContinental Hotels include a CODA Core™ of lithium-ion batteries and BMS technology integrated with Stem's energy optimization solution. This foundational CODA Core storage technology also powers the all-electric vehicles manufactured by CODA Automotive, CODA Energy's sister company, and is designed to maximize available energy and provide a long-lasting and durable solution. Ideal for commercial and industrial customers, the new deployment by Stem helps improve power reliability and quality, reduce peak demand charges and optimize time-of-use rates.

"We're pleased to be working with CODA Energy on our first customer installation," said Tad Glauthier, vice president of sales and marketing of Stem. "Stem's data, predictive analytics and energy optimization system, along with the CODA Core, optimizes electricity use for the InterContinental hotels, allowing them to save money without requiring changes in behavior or operations."
