Peter is motivated by the vision of creating a market place for the distributed energy world. By utilisation of existing assets, Origami Energy is able to generate new revenue streams for customers and partners, increase the marginal capacity of the network, improve security of supply and reduce carbon emissions by reducing the need for "dirty" peaking generation plants and enabling more renewables to be connected to the grid. The company is developing the technical and financial mechanisms by which fleets of distributed energy assets (including generation, energy storage and demand side response) can interact directly with each other and transact peer-to-peer. The company is trialling this smart technology platform initially in the UK and then aims to roll it out globally. He was recently elected board member of the Energy Systems Catapult. His perspective if crucial if you’re interested in how we can use data to enable and improve the current energy system.
