What are we looking for

Energy production is progressively becoming more distributed and decentralized. In particular, the emergence of local communities, micro-grids and aggregates of consumers are offering the possibility to locally optimize energy usage and reap the benefit of flexibility at an aggregated level.

We’re looking for solutions to better forecast and steer groups of locally (or virtually) aggregated consumptions and productions with the aim of creating additional value for our customers on the different energy markets (spot, intraday, balancing, ancillary services). Solutions can range from hardware, platforms, analytics and algorithms, or include the whole stack of enabling technologies.
