The energy transition in response to climate change and the challenges of our society must be an effective, efficient and just transition. The energy sector is evolving towards a decentralized, decarbonized, digitized and democratized model, where energy flexibility will be a key element in meeting the challenges of this transition. In this context, the role of demand aggregators is key to enabling and providing demand flexibility to the system.
We want to contribute in changing the current energy model towards a model in favor of people, society and the planet. Our purpose is to support the transition to cleaner energy sources by providing technological solutions (social-economic-environmental).
We developed an energy optimization technology platform for aggregation of demand flexibility to enable consumers to actively participate in the energy system and provide ways to monetize flexibility.
With our software platform we offer optimal flexibility management, from day-ahead trading to real-time flexibility operation.
10 years of experience in technological startups, energy field, and flexibility markets. A balanced team in business and technology skills with outstanding publications and projects. The three researchers and the CEO are a great combination of business research and development that will ensure that the company does not miss any opportunities in both fields to successfully apply as the best technological solution for aggregation.
