Operating system for renewable energy

Founded in 2019 by Frederik Merz, Florian Strunck and Erik Nitschke, ampere.cloud works with the mission to transform the energy space, tapping into the multi-billion renewable energy market. It is building the operating system for renewable energy, which will empower the transition to a sustainable energy future.

With its operating system, owners and operators of renewable energy plants can manage their entire portfolios on a single platform, and deliver increased efficiency. The platform connects the full value chain from local communication and remote control for operators via IoT, to automated monitoring, to connecting the facilities to energy traders.

ampere.cloud’s platform enables renewable energy companies to grow as they put their plant operations on autopilot. By establishing a connection between the plants and local grid operators and offering remote control to the energy markets, it helps stabilise the local grids and matching supply and demand of fluctuating energy generation. These are essential to prevent blackouts in a future world that relies largely on renewable energy.
