We're really excited about Green Tech and Smart Grid Technologies.. How about you? We've representing a very exciting client that is developing a massively distributed web service that will communicate with individual residences and offices all over the world, gathering more than 20,000 data points regarding the structures thermal performance and from advanced smart analytics can help reduce heating, cooling and overall power consumption by more than 50% by automating adjustments on the occupants behalf.
While the above services are aimed towards the individual consumer, these services also provide energy distributors and grid operators demand response, forecasting and measurement services - example: imagine a service that can over time learn and predict the power consumption of all the residences in Southern California and based upon the historical behaviors adjust the distribution to and from the grid on-demand instantaneously based upon different elements such as weather, temperature, load, etc. In the event of a possible failure of the grid the service can also help to balance (stager) consumption from it's consumers to decrease the load on the grid during peak times.
How darn cool is that?
The company has raised it's first significant round of financing from reputable institutional investors and has several revenue generating customers, including a $4 billion energy producer here in the United States. They've received significant interest in overseas/foreign energy producers and grid operators.
