Many organizations have begun investing in a brighter future using Particle's IoT platform
Shifted Energy is driving the energy economy to 100% renewable. Electric water heaters can act as a battery to temporarily store renewable energy during the day, which utility companies can use to shift energy loads during peak demand hours.
With Particle’s platform, Shifted Energy is retrofitting already deployed water heaters into energy storage units.
Opti helps prevent urban flooding before it happens. Their “smart” system proactively monitors weather forecasts and actuates drainage valves to minimize sewer overflows and environmentally hazardous run-off.
Opti’s Particle-powered solution controls the flow of water to preemtively drain resovoirs before a storm comes.
Envirofit improves the lives of millions of people living in extreme poverty that must prepare their food over an open flame. Their cookstoves are smarter, safer, and minimize toxic emissions.
