The equiwatt team is on a mission to make clean energy more affordable and accessible to everyone. We are inspired by the opportunity for homes and technology to play an active part in reducing the cost of energy and lowering CO2 emissions through renewable energy usage.
The impact households can have on our Net-Zero ambitions is significant. We want to help every home support a reduction in household energy usage at peak times and shift it to times when cleaner, renewable energy is more abundant. Rewarding action and helping homes to see the impact they can have is engaging people across the country to change their energy habits.
The equiwatt team are inspired by the opportunity to make clean energy solutions more accessible and affordable for more homes. Our app is free and doesn’t require any expensive installations or tariffs that make life complicated for consumers. We connect to existing smart technologies to make connected appliances and electric vehicles easy. And we make it fun to change habits through rewards, prizes, and competitions.
During times of peak demand, equiwatt automatically switches off appliances or pauses smart charging at the same time across our community. This collective energy saving effort is helping to build a virtual power plant that balances demand on our grid, reduces the need for polluting power plants and rewards our users for the difference they make to our energy systems.
