The FlexMeasures platform

Build real-time energy flexibility services, rapidly and scalable. On top of open source.

Developing energy flexibility services (e.g. to enable demand response) is crucial, but expensive.

To enable rapid creation of scalable services, we offer our FlexMeasures platform. For free.

FlexMeasures reduces development costs with real-time data integrations, uncertainty models and API/UI support.

Energy Flexibility?

The developers of energy flexibility services turn flexibility which exists in the operation of assets into CO₂ reductions or cost savings.

In effect, energy consuming assets are turned on when the energy mix in the grid contains the most renewable energy (e.g. when the sun is shining) or when energy is the cheapest. Next to operation of processes, another prominent use case of energy flexibility are buffers and batteries.

Usually, this requires the software to plan a few hours ahead. No one likes assets to turn on and off suddenly.

Value drivers

How we believe FlexMeasures can make a difference

Real-time updates & advice

Energy flexibility services need to interact multiple times per day or hour. We equipped FlexMeasures with:

  • Support for real-time updates

  • Forecasting for the upcoming hours

  • Schedule optimization

Uncertainty models

Dealing with uncertain forecasts and outcomes is crucial.

FlexMeasures is therefore built on timely-beliefs, so we model this real-world aspect accurately.

Service building

Building customer-facing services is where developers make impact. We make their work easy.

  • Well-documented API

  • Plugin support

  • Plotting support

  • Multi-tenancy

Features

A more detailed view

Dashboard

An online dashboard shows maps, graphs and an order book to act on new intel.

Asset management

Manage their assets manually through the dashboard or automatically through the API. Group them to view aggregated data (e.g. per building or microgrid)

Open-source

By consisting entirely of open-source digital technologies, your platform will gain new feature opportunities at no cost.

Compliant

The API design follows the Universal Smart Energy Framework (USEF), which provides a strong and widely accepted architecture to define roles and processes in modern smart energy systems, and connect them with markets.

.

Automatable with APIs

A well-documented Application Programming Interface (API) allows your sensors and other software to communicate with the FlexMeasures platform in an automated fashion.

Monitoring 24/7

Your platform is monitored continuously such that operators can be notified immediately if problems occur.StatusCake logoSentry logo

Robust benchmarking

Insightful evaluation of new prediction models and information sources, by plotting their probabilistic performance against time of day and time ahead.

Secure

Your platform is only served over HTTP Secure and uses a secure hashing algorithm to store user credentials.

Predictive analytics

Machine learning models which allow robust forecasts of energy, weather and pricing data are part of FlexMeasures. When we design custom smart schedules we can schedule actions that take risk into account.

Stable codebase

Low technical debt and a high coverage of functionality via automated tests.
