Packetized energy


 

Smoothing the transition to a renewable future
- one packet at a time

Packetized Energy designs and deploys human-friendly systems to enable distributed energy resources such as water heaters, electric vehicle chargers, battery storage systems and pool pumps to balance supply and demand in the power grid. As a result, people can better manage their energy costs and the grid can run reliably with renewable energy.

Why choose Packetized Energy?

 

Advantages of our patent-pending system, Packetized Energy Management (PEM), include:

 

LOCAL DECISION-MAKING  

Home or business manages its own devices based on unique needs
 

PRIVACY  

Personal energy usage information is never shared with anyone, ever
 


FAIRNESS 

All users have equitable access to the grid’s resources
 


SCALABILITY 

Software systems that scale up to manage millions of devices
 

ADAPTIVE  

Loads adapt to rapid changes in supply and demand with minimal coordination

Leveraging modern communication networks

PEM leverages core ideas from modern communication networks, in which data is divided into small packets and then transmitted through networks. We also use ideas from control and system theory, machine learning and optimization to enable electricity demand to balance, in real time, with renewable supply, one packet at a time.
