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.
