The supply of renewable energy like wind and solar is constantly changing. Energy demand caused households also varies, but not at the same rate. Utility companies react to this by ramping-on/-off mainly fossil-fired power plants. Excess supply on the other hand needs to be stored, sold to neighboring countries or reduced by temporarily cutting off wind or solar plants from the grid. This is both costly and an unsustainable solution.

A rising proportion of the population feels the urge to consume more sustainably and is willing to take action. The home with all its energy consuming appliances is in the focus of consumer awareness.
However, switching to a green electricity provider alone does not solve the problem described above. Many consumers are not aware of the varying supply of green energy, nor do they have a way to adjust their consumption accordingly.

A rising proportion of the population feels the urge to consume more sustainably and is willing to take action. The home with all its energy consuming appliances is in the focus of consumer awareness.
However, switching to a green electricity provider alone does not solve the problem described above. Many consumers are not aware of the varying supply of green energy, nor do they have a way to adjust their consumption accordingly.

Waive is a ML-driven assistant that matches a household’s near-time energy demand and relates it to the expected supply of green energy.

This Information is used to:
- ACTIVATE & educate the eco-conscious user by predicting the “greenest” energy consumption windows and nudging them to shift electricity consumption to this time period.
- AUTOMATE & optimize the users home by shifting energy consumption of devices (heat pump, EV charger, domestic hot water system, battery storage, etc.) to optimal use of green energy from a PV or - if not available - from the grid.

Smart apartments or individual smart devices may consume Waive’s functionality via API’s to offer “Go Green” services to their customers and differentiate themselves from competition. Furthermore, utility companies and grid operators benefit from a more balanced consumptions, due to flattened demand peaks and might therefore be additional partners. The user on the other hand reaches personal sustainability without increasing electricity bills in the long run.
