Managing home energy demand without accelerating obsolenscence


OpenWatt enables the rapid integration of legacy equipment into 21st-century electricity networks. Targeting fridges and electric heaters, OpenWatt aggregates domestic appliances to sell demand response services to electricity grid operators. This provides a low-carbon alternative to carbon-intensive grid balancing services, a need which is expected to grow dramatically in the future.
