The Faraday Grid is the redesign of the electricity network; the transformation from fragile, generator-centric hub and spoke, to a resilient distribution platform. It provides the common ground where the emerging energy ecosystem can be realised, connecting grid edge innovators with generators and consumers.
Countries around the world share an aspiration to decarbonise their economies and produce cleaner forms of energy. Renewable energy sources have a critical role to play, and it is important this is achieved at the lowest cost so that the transformative benefits of electricity can continue to be enjoyed by all.
Utilising existing infrastructure, the Faraday Grid is underpinned by our patented Faraday Exchanger technology, and is the foundation for the Emergent Transactional Platform; a truly scalable transactive grid for the energy market.
the faraday exchanger
On 12th December 2017, we demonstrated live our prototype of the Faraday Exchanger.
The Faraday Exchanger addresses short term volatility, dynamically managing voltage and power factor, and removing harmonics. Deploying Exchangers across the electricity grid will enable significantly greater capacity to integrate renewable energy; increase grid stability; and contribute to reduced cost of energy for consumers.

the enabling technology for a new energy platform
EMERGENT transactional platform
Allows any supported device or agent to participate in the trading of energy.
Solves intermittence - by meeting supply and demand via price signalling.
Runs as a software protocol over the top of the Faraday Grid.
Faraday GRID is the ultimate smart grid
Lifts the tolerance of the grid for renewables and variable, distributed energy sources.
Solves short term volatility, has its own inertia.
Is a network of Faraday Exchangers across electricity distribution.
Acts as an autonomous system node, like a router in the internet.
Solves bi-directional power flow; is the underpinning technology for the Faraday Grid and Emergent Transactional Platform.
Is located in the network at any point of connection.
