The Project

Grid Symphony will save billions of dollars for utilities by reducing 60-80% of energy lost in transmission and distribution by avoiding structural redundancies, strengthening grid resiliency and lowering electricity costs for all. The team’s forecasting software predicts demand, battery capacity, and weather to control and optimize electric grids at every scale.
