Business Development Manager

Boston, MA
Full Time

At Peak Power, we’re making dirty power plants obsolete.

The current, centralized electricity system is not sustainable. Between the climate crisis, state-wide blackouts, aging infrastructure, and rising costs, the system needs a huge overhaul. The demand for electricity is high – and getting higher – and big power plants aren't meeting our needs. We say it's time to disrupt and decentralize.

At Peak Power, we're energy nerds that develop software for the real estate sector. Our tech turns commercial buildings and industrial facilities into mini, virtual power plants in a new, decentralized electricity system.  

Peak Synergy is our energy efficiency software platform. It analyzes grid conditions in real-time and sends notifications for high demand hours. The platform also looks at how dirty the grid is at any moment. If a building has batteries and EVs chargers onsite, Peak Synergy manages their usage to meet sustainability goals and participate in complicated energy market programs. 

Peak Synergy benefits stakeholders across the energy and building sector. Commercial real estate and industrial companies have the insights required to meet net zero goals while generating revenue and lowering operational costs. Battery developers and investors add value with a cost-effective asset operation tool. Utilities increase resiliency, accelerate renewable adoption, and defer or prevent infrastructure upgrades.

At the end of the day, this means cleaner, more reliable, and more affordable electricity for everyone. We’re powering the clean energy revolution.
