We are an aggregator controlling heatpumps and space/water heaters

Pitch

We help electricity consumers and utilities save money, while allowing for the integration of more renewables. We offer a vertically-integrated platform, from in-house local device module, over a scalable and secure communication platform, to our patent pending control algoritm. First, we target end-users via utilities and appliance manufacturers. Their benefits are energy insight via the dashboard, local energy efficiency improvement, and energy payouts by participating in energy markets (up to €200/year). To the manufacturer we offer a universally-applicable local module. To society we offer grid stability and the solution to reach the 20-20-20 targets.
