Packetized Energy designs and deploys human-friendly systems to enable distributed energy resources such as water heaters, electric vehicle chargers, battery storage systems and air conditioners to solve grid problems and produce valuable market services. As a result, people can better manage their energy costs and the grid can run reliably with renewable energy.
Our patent-pending DER coordination software platform, Packetized Energy Management (PEM), provides a number of distinct advantages, including:
Our bottom-up design makes it easy for utilities to solve grid and market problems and easy for customers to manage their energy needs without sacrificing privacy or security.
Leveraging ideas that run the Internet enables us to affordably coordinate millions of energy devices.
Packetized Energy's software is ready to coordinate millions of DERs today and is paving the way for the future of energy with peer-to-peer transactions.
PEM leverages core ideas from modern communication networks, in which data is divided into small packets and then transmitted through networks with randomization. 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.
Our solutions create flexibility from distributed energy resources by dividing energy into small chunks (packetization) and spreading these chunks in time (randomization), enabling demand to follow supply, making energy more affordable and providing non-wires alternatives to expensive infrastructure investments.
