Company Summary

VCharge offers rapid and scalable power management for Transactive Load. Modern electric grids are characterized by substantial physical and economic volatility, a problem exacerbated by wind and solar generation. VCharge’s VNet technology allows ETS heaters and other Transactive Loads to take advantage of this volatility, allowing them to buy electrical energy when it is cheapest, and simultaneously providing balancing services to grid operators
