A new chapter: envelio expands into the USA

Cologne, 24.04.2024: Today, we are excited to announce our expansion into the USA. This strategic move not only symbolizes the global growth of our company but also embodies our firm commitment to accelerating the global energy transition.

The USA faces the challenge of significantly advancing the expansion of renewable energies in order to reduce the climate-damaging emissions of CO2. This is precisely where envelio steps in: Our technology aims to considerably accelerate the grid interconnection processes through digitalization and automation, thus making a substantial contribution to transforming the energy supply in the United States.

Dr. Simon Koopmann, co-founder and CEO of envelio, emphasizes the importance of this step: “The U.S. grids are facing a huge wave of interconnection requests creating an urgent need for efficient grid analysis, effective grid expansion, and creative grid integration concepts.”

With the Intelligent Grid Platform, envelio aims to help US grid operators significantly reduce the massive queue of solar and wind projects, which together comprise more than 1200 gigawatts of capacity waiting for grid interconnection, and thus substantially contribute to accelerating the energy transition in the USA.

On the Path to Global Sustainability

In Germany, our IGP has already automated 55,000 grid interconnections within the last 12 months, which corresponds to a saving of more than 50,000 hours of work for engineers and technical planners. As we expand our operations into the USA, we‘re striving to achieve similar successes and establish the foundation for a demand-driven expansion of the distribution networks and the development of flexible smart grids.

Our expansion into the USA and becoming a winner of the 2024 BloombergNEF Award mark the beginning of a new chapter for us. These developments represent a crucial milestone in our mission to make a significant contribution to the transformation of the global energy landscape and thus to the reduction of CO2 emissions. With this step, we are now notably closer to our vision of “intelligent grids for a sustainable future worldwide.”
