Portugal, 15th June 2021:
As part of the continuing internationalization of Cleanwatts, the Portugal-based company announces a partnership agreement with the Norwegian company NODES aimed at deploying the benefits of distributed generation and flexibility services around the World.
“Cleanwatts team is excited and energized about entering this partnership with NODES.
Combining the competences and strengths of Cleanwatts and NODES in terms of energy
systems, software development, digital services, operations management, we are able to
transform the complexity inherent in the energy transition into a simple value proposition for our customers: clean, smart, locally sourced energy and at a lower price than the grid”- says José Queirós de Almeida, Cleanwatts CMO.
Together, Cleanwatts and NODES are now well positioned to address a range of new and
rapidly emerging market needs triggered by the ongoing transition towards decentralized
generation, storage and consumption of clean energy. Cleanwatts will deploy Kiplo® (Virtual Power Plant platform) designed to provide aggregation services, grid-level balancing and wholesale energy trading in support of local energy communities and smart city projects.
“NODES is pleased to be working with Cleanwatts and to recognise them as a partner as part of our NODESconnect program. Working with companies like Cleanwatts is extremely
important in developing the energy system for the future, where technology and innovation will allow us to realise the decentralization and decarbonisation of our society” – concludes Richard Sarti, Director Marketing and Sales of NODES.
Cleanwatts was founded in 2020 through the incorporation of Virtual Power Solutions (VPS) and several startups operating in the area of digitalized energy management. The company’s mission is to simplify, amplify and accelerate energy decarbonization for clients around the world.
Cleanwatts achieves this by focusing on two vectors that drive financial, environmental and social benefit for its clients: smart energy efficiency delivered as a service and affordable clean energy also offered as a service. Cleanwatts currently manages more than 2TWh in over 2000 locations across various industries, international airports and local communities.
Cleanwatts offerings are designed to reduce operating expenses, complexity, volatility and unpredictability in respect of energy procurement, consumption, generation, storage,
balancing and trading. The company delivers its services through a suite of wing-to-wing
proprietary software platforms that allow clients to manage, optimize and control energy use in real time, from behind the meter applications to front of the meter balancing services.
Acting as a smart utility, the company also offers zero capex solutions that deliver affordable clean energy to local communities through multi-year service contracts.
