Gentrack and Evergen partnership allows utilities to launch VPP-based offerings


Gentrack said the alliance with Evergen expands its partner ecosystem and brings cutting-edge distributed energy resources management (DERM) technology and advanced energy solutions to consumers and utilities globally.

Evergen provides a smart energy management platform that uses machine learning algorithms to optimise the use of renewable energy assets. Their software predicts energy needs and market conditions to automatically adjust systems to maximise energy efficiency and cost savings. The platform is hardware agnostic with cloud-based APIs for commercial and residential applications across distributed energy resources (DERs).

Gentrack offers product-to-profit software solutions for utilities worldwide, through its innovative g2.0 offering. The low code/no code composable architecture is built to adapt quickly and support ever changing market conditions with new products and services while automating processes by design to reduce cost-to-serve.

Gentrack’s g2.0 offering is integrated with Evergen’s energy management system and is already live in an Australian Tier 1 Energy customer, providing an end-to-end Virtual Power Plant solution and empowering consumers to fully benefit from rooftop solar and energy storage. As a result, customers can improve their self-sufficiency and resilience to external market fluctuations, and work towards a more sustainable future.

The partnership between Evergen and Gentrack will bring the strengths of both companies together to offer comprehensive DERM solutions allowing utilities to innovate at pace and combining expertise to ensure a simple and seamless customer experience for the end user.

Evergen CEO and Managing Director, Ben Hutt said “our partnership comes at a time when the need for renewable energy is rapidly increasing globally.”

“By partnering with Gentrack, we’re well-positioned to empower utilities with the innovative tools they require to meet this growing demand — accelerating the transition to renewable energy and creating a brighter, more sustainable future for all,” he said. “Together, we’re excited to drive positive change in the industry and bring the benefits of renewable assets to utilities worldwide.”

Alasdair Firth, VP Global Partnerships & EMEA, Gentrack, said “utilities are right in the thick of an exciting and ever-changing market. They are running businesses in a time of unprecedented shifts, all while trying to transition to net zero. Our partnership with Evergen demonstrates the sort of innovative proposition which will be required in the future as people look to change the way they consume energy – it’s going to help utilities stay ahead of the game and be leaders in this exciting transformation.”
