EIT InnoEnergy Master School alumnus Jacob Dalton examined a truly innovative idea for his master’s thesis. He wanted to show how average households (with electric vehicles) could pool together and create a Virtual Power Plant (VPP) that could turn on/off in an orchestrated manner, to help stabilise the electricity grid. The implications of such a customer-centric solution towards an optimised, decentralised and sustainable energy system were so fresh and different from the status quo – that it caught the eye of the progressive digital energy company Tibber. After having Jacob write the thesis for them, they hired him in 2018 to help make this exciting idea a reality!
