Energy Internet is commercializing a software platform for decentralized scheduling of energy-producing or consuming assets on the electricity grid. Energy Internet's utility clients will use our software to optimize the value of storage, generation and consumption assets in their area of operation.
The platform connects a network of residential, SMB, industrial and commercial users with generation and storage capacity to offer decentralized, coordinated demand management and energy services. The suite of products will include:
- Enhanced Demand Response: Optimizes electricity generation scheduling and provisioning to reduce expensive peak demand.
- Virtual Power Plants & Storage: Continuously connects a network of electricity producers and consumers to balance supply and demand.
- For utilties, new distributed generators (like solar power systems) and intelligent loads (like electric vehicles or smart appliances) are creating a need for control systems to manage these devices without disrupting the existing grid infrastructure. However, traditional centralized control systems cannot scale to handle so many resources. Energy Internet’s system can uniquely provide utilities with the ability to effectively control these assets, with the added benefits of faster reaction times and information security for end users.
Energy Internet is the winner of the ACC Clean Energy Challenge and was accepted to the NSF I-Corps 2014 Summer program.
