Reducing humanity’s carbon footprint is both a corporate and a social responsibility. By helping companies and utilities reduce their carbon emissions, we can fight global warming – and the negative effects associated with it, including rising sea levels, endangered wildlife, drought, disease, respiratory problems, malnutrition, and macroeconomic implications. GridCure helps cities utilize their energy more efficiently, incorporate renewable energy resources, and make better operational and financial decisions.

  1. GridCure can help cities meet the increasing energy demand: The Energy Information Administration (EIA) predicts the world’s power demands will increase 48% between 2012 to 2040. GridCure can help utilities plan for, generate, distribute, and store energy in an effort to address increasing energy needs. In particular, GridCure can help cities incorporate distributed renewable energy on their network. Without an adequate energy supply, prices can skyrocket, resulting in macroeconomic turmoil and even worse, consumers may go without basic necessities.
  2. GridCure can help cities conserve energy: The EIA also predicts that fossil fuels will still account for about 78% of the energy market in 20401; there are many environmental concerns associated with burning fossil fuels, e.g. acid rain, air pollution and global warming. By helping utilities conserve energy, we can reduce energy waste and can better control the amount of fossil fuels being burned.
  3. GridCure can help cities utilize renewable resources: Renewable energy technologies have much lower environmental impacts than traditional energy technologies, and many utilities will be required to incorporate renewable resources on their grid. Using GridCure’s platform, governments, utilities and enterprise consumers can plan for, generate, distribute, and store renewable energy to both optimize their grids and maintain the stability of their networks as they incorporate more distributed resources. Having a renewable energy plan helps us be more sustainable and secures our future.
  4. GridCure can help cities make better operational and financial decisions: GridCure’s software can help utilities mitigate power outages and transformer failures, which can have lasting devastating consequences on the environment. GridCure’s platform can predict when assets need to be serviced or replaced, helping with capital expenditure costs, operational planning, and preventing environmental hazards associated with avoidable transformer failures and plant explosions.
  5. GridCure can help cities optimize their data: GridCure’s technology can help cities optimize their energy data. For instance, decisions about placement of electric vehicle charging stations can have a large impact on the stability and efficiency of the electrical grid. GridCure can help cities place charging stations where they are needed while limiting any negative impacts on the grid.

Bonus – GridCure can increase the ability to collaborate on common problems: Perhaps the most important impact of our platform will occur simply by giving cities and utilities the tools to collaborate on shared problems. Advancing the sophistication of an entire field will be our most significant contribution long term.

Here at GridCure, we strive to build sustainable solutions that not only help businesses but that will also benefit humanity and protect our environment. We’re saving the world – one electron at a time.
