Making end-consumers responsive

Shared Electric develops solutions for electricity utilities to make their consumers more responsive in usage with minimal investment. Responsive consumers bring energy savings, optimal grid operation and reduction of carbon footprint.

We are a start-up based in Switzerland. Our product is custom software built on top of smart meter networks to provide utilities a means to interact with and engage their end-consumers in a meaningful participation towards a more sustainable grid.

Benefits

More Sustainable Grid

SharedElectric Applications No Blackouts

Having responsive consumers enables utilities to integrate renewable energy cheaper and faster, reduces overall consumption and shifts it towards hours with production peaks from renewable Energy.

Lower Procurement Costs

SharedElectric Applications No Blackouts

By moving consumption dynamically away from hours with high prices towards more favorable hours, responsive consumers decrease the procurement cost of electricity.

More Engaged Customers

SharedElectric Applications No Blackouts

Customers who interact with the electricity utility and understand their consumption are happier and a valuable asset for the utility for years to come.

Load Management

See the impact of responsive consumers.

21 October 2014:
This simple demo is meant to show how powerful tool responsive consumers can be in reducing CO2 emissions while not affecting costs.

This assumes a normal load profile and power plants for a town in India.

Drag the columns up and down to influence the load profile. You can see which power plants need to be dispatched and on the right you see the CO2 emission change and the fuel cost change.

Just make sure that there is no load mismatch (that the units sold are the same before and after)

Field Work

Know more about our work in India

12 September 2014:
We have completed our first field test in India. In April 2014, homes in Balangir, Odisha were refitted with a simplified version of our technology. This lowered the capacity needed for supplying electricity to those homes and increased consumer participation.

The end-result: we validated end-consumer acceptance and operational feasibility of our idea.

Meetings with several stakeholders have helped validate our product and develop it together with them. A full-scale pilot project will be installed with a major utility partner in the city of Rourkela in India in February 2015.

Product Development

Learn what we have been up to.

1 August 2014:
We are ardent believers of learning-by-doing principle. So we did dive into electronics design and developed the several versions of our product from scratch. We use this for testing our technology in a laboratory setting and to select the best components and processes suitable for our final product.

After designs are made final, we are collaborating with partners to manufacture our product (DEAM) for installation in pilot projects.
