AutoGrid’s mission is to organize the exponentially increasing amount of energy data produced from a networked and automated grid and make it useful and actionable for electricity generators and providers, grid operators, and their customers.

To do this, we’re building a highly scalable software system capable of processing the petabytes of data being generated, making real-time predictions, and running complex optimization algorithms across millions of variables.

Our first application on this platform enables electricity providers and consumers of all sizes to forecast generation, consumption, and other grid conditions at unprecedented levels of granularity, and to utilize these forecasts to optimize demand and cost through flexible demand management programs.

AutoGrid’s solution can be deployed in weeks not months or years, doesn’t require expensive capital investments, and has an immediate ROI. Our unique approach is hardware-vendor neutral, utilizes open standards, and is able to communicate with all customer segments and load types via any communication channel and protocol – providing the most flexible system for optimizing and personalizing management of electricity demand available today.

AutoGrid is a Foundation Capital portfolio company.
