Upside Energy is an award-winning UK start-up. The energy system is going through dramatic change and Upside aims to be at the forefront of this transformation, helping create a world of cleaner, cheaper energy for everyone.
Upside Energy provides flexibility to the energy system. It has built a Cloud service that uses advanced algorithms and artificial intelligence to orchestrate hundreds of thousands of energy storage and other electrical devices – uninterruptible power supplies, solar panels, electric vehicles, domestic heating systems, etc. – to create a Virtual Energy Store™. This enables the grid to manage supply and demand for electricity more effectively, thus enabling wider deployment of renewable energy. Upside’s systems can directly eliminate hundreds of thousands of tonnes of greenhouse gases.
Upside works with stakeholders across the system — device owners, manufacturers, transmission and distribution networks, energy suppliers — to unlock the value in equipment already installed in households, commercial and industrial sites, thus increasing security of supply while reducing the cost and environmental impact of energy.
