As the grid changes from a centralised to a distributed one, we need to help support the new configuration with a highly agile market.
We develop software for our clients and partners that allows consumers and producers to track, trace and trade every kilowatt of energy.
We are developing systems that bring resilience and flexibility to electricity grids. Our technology is helping clients like TDED in Thailand, CUB in Australia and ekWateur in France bring new ideas and forms of energy to powering their clients and workplaces.
Our mission is to create markets that remove the obstacles to 24/7 renewable energy.
When you observe the current energy crisis, or talk to any energy expert, the sense of market failure becomes apparent. Think a little further and it becomes clear that we are going to need markets considerate of the time and place that renewable energy is generated and used, in order to solve problems such as curtailment or fuel poverty.
Our mission is to empower ordinary citizens and corporations alike, so that their renewable energy generation, storage and buying power is harnessed in an optimal way. Our mission includes bringing continuity in transmission and distribution that is less liable to conventional grid failures.
