Expert judges assessed the ability of the technologies to deliver environmental benefits at scale, with a focus on successful deployments in the real world. Kaluza’s platform plays a crucial role in the world’s largest roll out of vehicle-to-grid technology and is optimising a rapidly-growing number of electric car smart chargers across the UK.

Yoann Martin, Director of Product and Engineering at Kaluza, commented:

“With a ban on combustion engines by 2040, we need scalable intelligence to successfully transition to electric cars and unlock the full potential of smart charging for a zero carbon grid. Winning this award is testimony to our platform’s ability to optimise smart charging to support the grid and enable people in their homes to make money from surplus energy.”

Kaluza is one of the world’s first intelligent energy platforms that responds in real time to the grid’s energy supply, demand balance and wholesale prices, optimising the energy use of single devices, including home heating systems and electric cars. Connecting and controlling these devices at scale, the technology creates flexibility to help push demand away from peak times, whilst meeting consumer needs and reducing carbon emissions.
