Empowering Distributed Energy Markets

Electron is an Entech company accelerating the transition to Net Zero.

Technology

Our technology enables operators of networks, systems, local energy markets and distributed energy assets to unlock value in decarbonising energy systems.

Platform

Our platform, ElectronConnect, makes granular, market-based interactions possible. It enables users to create, operate and participate in multiple network optimisation markets, in which thousands of products and services can interact with millions of diverse energy assets.

01

Global energy systems are reorienting & digitising

Global energy systems are being transformed by the need to reach Net Zero.

As a result, energy systems are rapidly shifting towards renewable, intermittent energy generation, energy assets are increasingly distributed and located on lower voltage local networks and network capacity is increasingly constrained.

Today’s top-down, semi-analogue energy management tools are increasingly unable to realise cost and carbon efficiencies in complex systems comprising millions of distributed energy assets.

02

Value is already shifting into local energy markets

As renewable-dense regions experience rising network constraints and are forced to curtail, and therefore waste, renewable generation, it is increasingly recognised that local solutions are needed to address these market inefficiencies.

Local market optimisation projects are being commissioned in more progressive regions and network operators are funding marketplace solutions to these challenges.

03

Electron provides transformative solutions, available to all energy market participants

Our current projects deliver immediate solutions for local network constraints, with the ElectronConnect platform enabling multiple, repeatable market solutions, designed by the users themselves.

ElectronConnect enables new markets to be easily created to solve the challenges associated with a decentralising grid.

Ultimately, our technology will deliver global, system-wide market infrastructure offering opportunities for innovation and efficiency which are not available in the undigitised systems of today.

Who We Serve

Our customers are existing and emerging electricity market participants looking to create and optimise marketplaces to maximise value of local resources, making efficient use of network capacity and zero carbon, zero marginal cost power.

Our flexibility platform enables

Network and System Operators:

To improve visibility of distributed energy assets and manage the intermittency, congestion and power quality challenges they present.

Asset owners, operators and traders:

To access new revenue streams, ‘stacked’ across national balancing, local congestion and financial vectors.

Retailers and aggregators:

To develop differentiated service models for customers, recruit new assets and hedge risks with better granularity.

Consumers:

To benefit from a low-cost, low-carbon energy system thanks to more efficient use of clean generation and network assets.
