Our cloud-based software service works in harmony with a building’s BEMS and provides a simple bolt-on solution to intelligently control and optimise complex building energy loads
The critical innovation is the introduction of predictive AI learning algorithms that are not found in conventional BEMS and which enable accurate prediction of a building’s future energy profile so that generation and storage assets can be controlled optimally in real time.
Our software empowers building owners to realise the true value of their energy assets:
We Turn Buildings Into Batteries:
Grid Edge software is about much more than just saving energy — it also enables building owners to create new revenue streams by turning their energy equipment into high-value assets for the electricity grid.
The electricity grid requires constant balancing of supply and demand to ensure a safe and reliable flow of power to consumers. If too much power flows through the grid there is risk of damaging sensitive equipment; if demand outstrips supply there is a risk of blackouts. This second-by-second balancing of the power grid is made more challenging by the difficulty in forecasting the supply of electricity from the increasing deployment of intermittent renewables.
Demand-side response (DSR), where energy consumers are paid to manipulate their energy demand in order to re-balance the grid, is a fast growing market worth £1billion per year in the UK.
Grid Edge enables building owners to grab a share of this growing market by making their complex building energy loads available for DSR for the first time.
