LOCAL ENERGY SOLUTIONS

 

We work with utilities and retailers to deliver a local energy marketplace that meets the demands of modern energy customers.

Our technology platform, Pando, offers a simple way to pool local distributed energy resources and enable customers to buy and sell local energy and optimize the grid at a community level.

LEARN MORE ABOUT PANDO
WHY LOCAL ENERGY
We combine industry expertise with advancements in technology to deliver a new frontier in energy. Below are just a few of the benefits of local energy.
Engagement
Increase consumer engagement and/or acquisition by providing a feel-good local energy sharing solution with a compelling user experience.
Resources
Provide smaller generators and consumers with a platform to sell/purchase environmental attributes, breaking down historical barriers to entry.
Partnerships
Connect with local regulators and municipalities to grow local energy benefits through a community-focused product.
Responsiveness
Combine time variant rates and/or demand response programs with renewable power programs using a spot market for renewable energy.
EXERGY: THE DATA OF ENERGY

Through blockchain technology and our own innovative solutions, we’ve developed Exergy, a permissioned data platform that creates localized energy marketplaces for transacting energy across existing grid infrastructure.

We’re just beginning to uncover the potential of the Exergy platform to influence the energy model of the future, and already the possibilities seem endless.

Peer-to-Peer
On the Exergy platform, prosumers—generating energy through their own renewable resource—can transact energy autonomously in near-real time with consumers on the platform in their local marketplace.
Microgrid
A microgrid is an ecosystem of connected prosumer and consumer energy assets. Energy is generated, stored, and transacted locally, creating more efficient, resilient and sustainable communities.
DSO
The distributed system operator is granted access to consumer data like building management systems. Using price as a proxy, the DSO manages energy use, load balancing, and demand response at negotiated rates.
EV Charging
When a charging station—public or private—or an electric vehicle has a surplus of energy, it is made available for purchase on the local network. Consumers can set budgets and be alerted to the availability via mobile app.

Imagine the possibilities of an energy-secure future.

“It means a lot to us. The environmental impact, and the fact that you can produce more energy than you’re consuming and sell it to your neighbors.”

– Joanna Erdos, Brooklyn New York

“In dangerous situations, you and your family could remain ok. Literally powered by your community’s microgrid.”

– Daniel Power, Brooklyn New York

“To be able to provide energy, for emergency services, or someone in need, that’s how a neighborhood comes together.”

– Noah Elgart, prosumer and Cobble Hill Cinema owner

“Park Slope/Gowanus is very progressive in terms of renewable energy and other such projects, and Brooklyn Microgrid is part of that.”

– Debasish Roy, prosumer and landlord
