FSIGHT Energy and SOLARIA enter into a partnership for the US market. The goal is to develop the leading AI-based platform for distributed energy communities and renewable energy generation and storage. Support is provided to FSIGHT and Solaria from the BIRD Foundation.
The BIRD Foundation (Israel-U.S. Binational Industrial Research and Development (BIRD) Foundation) has awarded FSIGHT Energy Ltd. of Tel Aviv, Israel, and Solaria Corporation of Oakland, California, a grant for the purpose of jointly developing capabilities in Distributed Energy Resource (DER) management and energy trading. The two companies succeeded in an international tendering process.
FSIGHT and Solaria will develop a combined hardware and software solution for households, businesses, and microgrids that optimizes and manages energy consumption, storage, and trading. Project development, to include solar panels, smart storage devices, and software, starts in Q1 2019 and is expected to be completed by early 2021.
Solaria, a provider of high-efficiency rooftop photovoltaic (PV) platforms, will provide the hardware components, including solar panels, power inverters, and storage devices. Solaria’s systems technology is based on its flagship PowerXT® which is a high-performance Pure Black™ solar panel – a sleek and attractive option for property owners interested in transforming their rooftops into onsite power plants.
FSIGHT, an innovator in AI and big data for the utility sector, will provide the energy management software based on its advanced Energy AI product suite. Energy AI modules automatically determine the best energy utilization strategies in terms of service and cost and allow end users to achieve fully-automated energy management and trading using Blockchain technology for financial transactions, either peer-to-peer or peer-to-grid.
“A core value shared by FSIGHT and Solaria is the global promotion of green, sustainable energy production and end user trading,” said FSIGHT CEO Emek Sadot. “This is materialized through DER elements which drives grid efficiency and cost saving.”
“In the future, a passive connection to the grid won’t be good enough for solar-electric systems,” said Solaria CEO Suvi Sharma. “Active coordination with other systems and connections to trading markets will become vital capabilities. I’m tremendously excited to be working with FSIGHT to usher in a new era of advanced capabilities for smaller-than-utility-scale solar generation systems.”
