Amp X and Enode partnership unlocks grid flexibility and customer savings
Unlocking flexibility at scale
Amp X’s innovative technology is aimed at unlocking flexibility from the edge of the grid at a large scale, and includes offerings for energy customers who want to save money, reduce their carbon footprint and contribute to the full decarbonization of the grid, without sacrificing comfort.
Using state-of-the-art machine learning, advanced data analytics and a proprietary autonomous control system architecture, the Amp X platform can dynamically shape the load around customer appliances and devices – including electric vehicle (EV) chargers, electric heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC), etc. – scheduling their energy use to coincide with output from low-cost and low carbon electricity production, such as solar PV and wind. Customers can also participate in demand-side response programmes operated by local and national system operators to help provide stability and resilience to power networks.
Simplifying access to energy device data
Enode’s cutting-edge software provides a link between Amp X’s platform and hundreds of energy devices – EVs, thermostats, solar inverters, batteries – with a single integration. Through Enode, Amp X can simplify the system architecture and securely access uniform energy device data across hundreds of individual devices, without complicated integrations and maintenance. Enode enables Amp X customers to easily connect their energy devices without complicated manual processes, so Amp X can help customers optimize their device usage, save money and reduce their carbon footprint.
Amp X’s behind-the-meter digital energy assistant, ALICE (Agent for Lifestyle-Based Intelligent Control of Energy) can then leverage artificial intelligence to ensure that the customer’s preferences are catered for at the lowest cost, and with minimal need for the consumer’s active engagement – lowering their energy bills, and even earning them a revenue stream from participation in flexibility markets.
Easing the transition to a sustainable global energy system
Amp X CEO, Dr. Irene Di Martino, said, “Amp X was founded to deliver a user-centric solution to the challenges of net-zero energy transition. Consumer engagement is key in delivering the cost savings available from participation in energy and flexibility markets from behind-the-meter, ensuring optimal energy management and dynamic load shaping in residential, commercial and industrial premises. This partnership with Enode is a key milestone in our journey towards a fully transactive grid, enabling seamless integration between flexible assets and the markets, with no adverse impact on the needs and lifestyles of the end users.”
Enode co-founder and CRO, Thorvald Thorsnes, added, “Enode’s mission is to accelerate the transition to a sustainable energy system by connecting and optimizing the world’s energy devices. By providing digital infrastructure and connectivity across energy devices, we can enable a seamless experience for Amp X’s customers, making it simpler to manage their energy needs, save money and use more renewable energy sources. We look forward to working with the talented team at Amp X to support a more sustainable global energy system that benefits us all.”
