ELECTRIFY is a Singapore-based energy innovation company established in March 2017 to address the need for transparency and security against the backdrop of increasingly liberalised electricity markets around the world. ELECTRIFY has developed a utility-grid wide peer-to-peer (P2P) energy trading platform that will potentially drive the adoption of renewable energy.
ELECTRIFY launched Electrify.SG in July 2017, Singapore’s first retail electricity marketplace. This marketplace was built to help electricity consumers select the most suitable energy plan for their needs. The cloud-based platform has transacted over 60GWh of electricity since its launch and helped over 500 commercial and industrial companies in Singapore save a combined S$1.5 million.
ELECTRIFY’s longer-term vision is to drive a sustainable energy future built around energy-innovation technologies, such as IoT, AI and blockchain. Using real-time data, it has developed a contracting platform which facilitates P2P energy trading across an existing city-wide grid. Individual producers of energy, such as owners of solar panels, will be empowered to sell excess power to other consumers across the power grid. In February 2019, ELECTRIFY completed a successful alpha test with 12 consumers and three producers.
Following a strategic investment from TEPCO Frontier Partners, a subsidiary of the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), ELECTRIFY entered a Memorandum of Understanding with TEPCO to explore the deployment of its technology for the Japanese market.
ELECTRIFY is poised to play a significant role in the Asia-Pacific energy landscape for years to come with upcoming projects in the region.
