Future-proof your business

Nexergy's local energy trading and control platform provides a customer-friendly way to moderate behind-the-meter distributed energy resources to ensure your business thrives in the rapidly changing energy ecosystem
The Problem
In the past energy flowed one way, with energy transmitted from generators to consumers. Now, we're entering the age of distributed generation, with the number of prosumers—people both produce and consume energy—increasing rapidly. New Internet of Things devices are increasingly finding their way into households. Innovative new models are needed to maintain relevance in this rapidly changing energy ecosystem.
Grid & load defection
Plummeting solar and battery prices along with uncertain feed-in tariffs are prompting householders to install distributed energy resources, with a view to going "off grid". This results in lower retail consumption, leading to revenue uncertainty and other challenges to traditional retail business models.
Bridging the consumer-trust gap
The energy industry is one of the least trusted globally. So much so that in Australia annual customer churn rates are as high as 23%. A recent Choice survey reports that 81% of energy customers are "very or quite" concerned about energy costs.
Engaging behind-the-meter
We've witnessed an explosion of new behind-the-meter (BTM) distributed energy resources in the past 10 years. This is expected to continue to grow with 36.8 GW of PV and 33.3GWh of storage forecast to be BTM by 2040*. This presents significant challenges to the profitability and resilience of electricity retail businesses.

The Solution
Nexergy provides a local energy trading and control platform that enables people who own distributed energy resources (DER) to trade their energy. Utilities, energy retailers and network service providers can access the platform to incentivise aggregated DER in a virtual power plant. By providing incentive price signals to market participants (prosumers), you can coordinate behind-the-meter DER in a customer-friendly way.
Control of DER to reduce OpEx
By facilitating active load and generation management, Nexergy allows you to control BTM resources in aggregate and in an economically efficient way. This is invaluable in managing spot market exposure and retail liability.
Increase customer choice
Engaged and happy customers means a long-lasting success for your business. Through Nexergy, customers provide an invitation for you to manage your business as effectively as possible whilst increasing consumer trust.
Make your business resilient
Our energy infrastructure is changing – and fast. Give your business the opportunity to thrive in the changing energy ecosystem, improving performance and building greater resilience into your business for the future.

Expressions of Interest
We're commencing trials of the Nexergy platform in 2017 and are currently scoping sites with potential partners, including microgrid utilities, retailers, networks service providers and precinct-scale utilities. If you're interested to learn more about how the Nexergy platform can help improve your business, or to discuss the potential for a trial with your customers, please contact us.

About Us
We envisage a more economically efficient energy system, where distributed energy resources play a large role in optimising energy retailing and improving the customer experience. We believe a market-based energy management platform is the most effective way of coordinating DER to maintain the value in your customer base and support the resilience of your business.

The Nexergy team was recently selected to participate in the Energy XO accelerator program, led by Pollenizer and supported by Horizon Power.
