A New Type of Energy Company
Clarity Grid Solutions Employees and Advisors represent a team with decades of experience in the energy field. This experience combined with the evolution of the electric grid and advances in technology has allowed us to create a dynamic platform poised to serve a broad range of industry participants: from the most sophisticated market participant to the smallest residential consumer.
As the physical infrastructure of the eletric grid evolves, the key driver of the value creation going forward will be infusing the Grid with intelligence through data analytics and seamless execution capabilities in order to deliver on the promise of the Smart Grid.
Most consumers of electricity in the U.S. give no thought to the construction of the Electric Grid and its associated costs. In fact, the complexities of alternative regulatory pricing structures, grid operations, and varying competitive market structures have historically made cost comparison difficult, if not impossible, to understand.
Clarity has, for the first time and on an open access basis, combined the vast amount of data necessary to give key insights on the operation of the Electric Grid and its associated costs in a standardized format across the US. Our analytics layer helps you make sense of the vast amounts of disparate data and gain value from those key insights.
Clarity Grid’s map-based open access platform couples complete visibility of the electric grid with mission-critical data and analytics to deliver actionable solutions to decision makers across the grid.
Data aggregated at most granular levels in the three key areas: wholesale energy, tariffs, and consumption profiles combined with analytics to provide key insights into the market.
Clarity Grid Solutions – Why We Started
The electric grid is a changing. As the physical construction of the grid has matured, the evolution of smart meters, smart thermostats, solar, wind, and distributed generation at the edge of the grid have and will continue to increasingly drive the evolution of the electric industry.
While the wholesale markets administered through the ISOs have become more efficient and comprehensive, the benefits of the grid to the ordinary end user have been difficult to understand. Through technology, data, and analytics the true benefits of the wholesale markets can be translated across the spectrum from the most sophisticated industry participant to the smallest residential consumer. Visualization of the grid using Clarity Grid’s map-based interface allows users to identify with specific geographic areas of the grid and benefit from associated meta data such as: anchor customers, adjacent traditional or renewable generation, facility ownership, etc.
The delivery of this information in standardized formats across the US coupled with advanced analytics allows energy consumers and the grid stakeholders who serve them to create actionable solutions. Through this visualization process Clarity Grid presents the information to reduce costs, operate more efficiently, and promote a green and smart electric grid.
