David Cohen's Bio

Redefining and Visioning the Grid Edge!

We strongly believe that a highly distributed energy system is the solution for now and the future


The electric grid is transforming from a centralized system to a decentralized system to a distributed system in which Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) such as distributed solar, energy storage, and electric vehicles are converging together into SmartGrid developments in the form of Nanogrids and Microgrids that need to integrate the the Grid.  This is termed the GridEdge.

Our Managing Partner, David A. Cohen pioneered the SoftGrid, the convergence of the SmartGrid with software-based intelligence enabling many new business models and applications such as Peer-to-Peer energy sharing and blockchain-based Microgrid control systems.
