Optimise your business

Nexergy's local energy trading and control platform provides a customer-friendly way to moderate behind-the-meter distributed energy resources to reduce the costs of running and managing your energy systems.
The Problem
In the past energy flows went one way, with energy transmitted from generators to consumers. Now, we're entering the age of distributed generation, with the number of prosumers—people who 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 an increasing number of households installing distributed energy resources, with a view to going "off grid". This results in lower utility consumption, leading to increased costs for all—a negative feedback loop which is challenging traditional utility business and operational models.
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 38 GW of distributed capacity forecast to be BTM by 2040*. That's 36% of total capacity in distributed energy resources and this presents significant challenges to the reliable and affordable management of your networks.

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.
Encourage DER to reduce Cap/OpEx
Local energy trading has been shown to provide better returns to prosumers which encourages investment in DER where it is needed most. This optimises the use of the network infrastructure and reduces the need for costly network augmentation.
Control of aggregated DER
By facilitating active load and generation management, Nexergy allows you to control aggregated BTM resources at scale and in an economically efficient way. This is invaluable network management as well as managing retail liabilities.
Increase customer choice
Engaged and happy customers means long-lasting success for your business. Through Nexergy, customers provide an invitation for you to manage your business as effectively as possible whilst building their trust.

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 reduce your CapEx and OpEx, or to discuss the potential for a trial on your network, please contact us.

About Us
We envisage a more economically efficient energy system, where distributed energy resources play a large role in optimising network usage, reducing long-term CapEx investment and on-going OpEx. We believe a market-based energy management platform is the most effective way of coordinating DER to maintain the value in electricity networks whilst increasing levels of reliability.

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