VIRIDOM is a cloud-based platform providing energy management and data analytics for buildings, especially those involving local electricity production systems (e.g. photovoltaics) and/or battery storage. These environments are called Nanogrids. VIRIDOM’s vision is to help people (i.e. nanogrid users) understand and control their electricity consumption and production, realize financial gains, and enjoy a better, greener environment. VIRIDOM serves as the bridge between the nanogrid electricity user and the power utility. More specifically, VIRIDOM puts nanogrid electricity users in realtime control of their consumption, production and storage, while at the same time it facilitates true automated demand-side management and fuels customer engagement for the utility companies. In this way, VIRIDOM provides the basis over which utilities could rebuild trust with their consumers.
