Welcome to the faraday grid
Faraday Grid Limited is dedicated to systems design that enables human choice, because we believe human prosperity can only be sustained through increasing individuals' freedom to choose.
We design by first principles, not by precedence. We apply our method called Design by Rationalised Constraint to solve critical systems.
The company was formed from the desire to solve global challenges facing our society and environment.
Current electricity distribution networks are under mounting strain to balance affordable and reliable energy while integrating variable renewable energy sources. The Faraday Grid is the rebalancing and reimagination of electricity grids via our unique deep tech IP – the Faraday Exchanger and the Faraday Grid.
the Faraday GRID is Not another smart grid
The Faraday Grid is an autonomous, responsive, electrical meta-network, agnostic to generation and consumption, with its own inertia, enabling more productive, resilient and stable electricity transfer.
Put more simply, it is the network effect of the deployment of multiple Faraday Exchangers throughout an electricity network.
the faraday exchanger: more than simply a "smart transformer"
The Faraday Exchanger is a single hardware device designed to address volatility at sub-second level.
It is a managed, high speed, power flow control device that dynamically maintains target voltage, frequency and power factor efficiently over a range of operation.
What is the energy trilemma?
Decarbonisation of the global electricity system has created a trilemma at the very center of the modern economy. Globally, grids have become unstable due to volatile, intermittent generation and less predictable demand leading to blackouts, brownouts and curtailment.
The conflation of three factors that define a sustainable energy system - reliability (security), affordability (equity) and reduced emissions (environmental) has come to be known as the Energy Trilemma.
