Geli is creating an end-to-end platform for the energy storage ecosystem. They do this by providing a software suite targeting the full life of storage and microgrid deployments, from design through monitoring, and managing assets. Founded in 2010, Geli now actively manages megawatts of projects around the world and has recently added a office in Australia to address the Asia-Pacific market.
Geli’s software suite is comprised of three connected tools: 1) Geli ESyst is an online project design tool that incorporates components from different OEMs as well as opportunities for project finance to quickly determine whether a site makes sense for energy storage, 2) the Geli Energy Operating System (Geli EOS) automates energy storage systems, dynamically importing protocols from Geli ESyst analysis as projects move forward, and 3) the Geli GENI platform monitors energy storage operations, reports operational and financial performance, and aggregates fleets of systems to provide grid services.
Geli is working with Hawaii PV developers to customize their ESyst platform to fit the regulatory environment. They currently have 20+ Hawaii installers working on ESyst, modeling and right-sizing solar-plus-storage systems in order to provide solar and storage to more markets at lower cost. Hawaii has one of the highest levels of PV in the nation, with nearly 30% of single family homes having installed solar, so new systems on multi-family housing and other locations often require storage in order to connect to the grid.
