VCharge is an alternative energy social enterprise with technology that benefits consumers, businesses and the environment. We make energy use more efficient, provide valuable grid-balancing services to utilities, and are laying the foundation for a more sustainable energy future.
It's great to support renewable energy like wind and solar, but consider the practical problems associated with these intermittent power sources: What happens when the wind isn't blowing? When the sun isn't shining? When the wind blows in the middle of the night and there is no demand for the energy being produced?
That's where we come in. VCharge uses decentralized, market-based principles to enable residential thermal storage heaters, electric cars, and other "transactive" loads to respond dynamically to grid conditions and improve overall system efficiency. We smooth the demand for energy and buffer the sudden and unpredictable peaks and valleys caused by intermittency. This enables greater use, preparing the world for 70-80% renewable generation.
Our goal? Changing the world by redefining the ways all of us think about and use energy by helping:
People heat and cool their homes and businesses, and power their vehicles
Renewable energy generators deliver and sell their output
Electric grid operators and utilities provide secure, stable, and reliable power
