ZOME Energy Networks, Inc.:
Fast Facts

ZOME is a cloud-based software solution for the residential and commercial energy sector. We work with building owners and energy providers to uniquely and viably monetize energy efficiency / management in a recurring revenue model that is a win for building owners, energy providers, and the environment.

Supply/Demand Issues
in Renewable Energy

As renewable energy generation investment grows, and traditional energy slows, the supply of energy becomes less predictable, creating a significant challenge for energy providers:

Profitable renewable energy
management is possible

In addition to selling to and satisfying building owners, ZOME helps energy providers balance supply and demand by bridging the evolving energy ecosystem and consumer smart energy devices (and gets paid for doing it).  ZOME uses cloud computing, algorithms they have developed in the field that work, and API-interoperability with low cost IoT equipment (like smart thermostats) to connect and control smart energy devices directly with the electric grid and energy markets.

Key Features / How It Works

ZOME enables profitable energy management that helps the deployment of renewables by:

Our ZOMEKit solution connects smart thermostats and networked on/off adapters for hot water heaters to our custom network and connects them all together, both in the building and out to the cloud.

We interface to the energy wholesale market, know when they pay for “demand response” and ”ancillary services” and signal thermostats and hot water heaters to adjust when appropriate.

We are paid by the energy market and share the revenue with the building owners and occupants.
