Leap’s mission is to stop climate change by creating the demand flexibility required to have a reliable electric grid that runs on clean energy. The electric grid is transforming from a model based on dirty (but largely predictable) fossil fuel generation to one that relies on clean (but often less predictable) renewable generation. As the grid absorbs all of this new variable energy, it will need need more flexible demand and supply to help maintain stability and reliability.
Leap’s marketplace unlocks access to the wholesale energy markets for IoT-connected distributed energy resources, enabling our partners to get paid for providing flexibility to the grid. Our platform connects market-pricing signals with the end-customers’ ability to shift load. We act as an aggregator of aggregators and partner with some of the best-known and most innovative players in clean energy and IoT. Working with these partners, we’ve helped a variety of new resources (think batteries and electric vehicles, but also irrigation pumps, smart thermostats, food processing centers and commercial refrigeration, to name a few) earn revenue by helping to balance the grid, smoothing the path for more renewable energy to come online.
Founded by Dutch entrepreneurs with experience in technology and energy, we are based in San Francisco with an engineering office in Utrecht (NL). Leap is a privately-held tech company with funding from well-known energy entrepreneurs and VCs.
