Upside were recently announced as one of the winners of EDF Blue Lab, EDF Energy’s innovation accelerator, created to harness the latest technologies, developing energy services and testing the new business models of tomorrow.
EDF are a major player in the energy markets and we believe that the EDF Blue Lab association and close collaboration will have huge benefits for Upside.
Many of our target device owners are EDF customers; these are homes with PV and battery (or planning to acquire a battery), commercial operations of various sizes, especially communication tower operators, higher education, public sector, utilities and facilities management companies.
We’ve developed our cloud service to run advanced algorithms for distributed storage and demand response management, in order to enable households and small business sites to participate in schemes for demand response by using existing assets to time-shift existing electricity demand, thus reducing energy costs and CO2 emissions.
We are looking forward to collaborating with EDF to help grow our business, with support and advice from industry experts.
