Ylem picks Origami’s flexible energy platform

Ylem MD Ian Gadsby

Ylem Energy will use Origami’s technology platform to manage its behind the meter solutions. The platform also enables Ylem’s customers to participate in energy flexibility markets.

Ylem provides funded behind the meter generation and storage, and has recently deployed what is believed to the first battery co-located with engines at a landfill gas site.

The company is working on a pipeline of gas engines and storage, either separately or together as a hybrid behind the meter at industrial and commercial (I&C) companies, as well as standalone gas peakers.

“Through the Origami platform, our customers will be able to control and schedule the availability of onsite generation and storage assets in order to reduce their energy costs, increase the reliability of their supply and generate new sources of revenue,” said MD Ian Gadsby.

“Increasingly, the timing of energy use is becoming more important than the quantity of energy used.”

Origami chief executive Peter Bance said the firm is “delighted” to partner Ylem and said technology is “key to ensuring that energy assets are used to their optimal potential.”
