From the decommissioning of high-carbon power assets, accelerated expansion of renewable energy resources as baseload power, to the advent of the prosumer. The rapid changes on today's energy grid have never been greater. WattBridge was conceived by power industry experts to enable the sustained integration of highly efficient, reduced carbon power generation assets in power markets.
The transformation from our legacy power generation past to a cleaner, greener, more optimized energy future is happening now on every grid across the planet. But it’s not an easy task. Our grid was built piece by piece over the last century. Even with today’s latest technologies we can’t simply flip the switch to a carbon neutral power grid, it must be done pragmatically, strategically, and safely to ensure the lights never go out. This is why we created WattBridge.
Provide a single source solution for energy customers to safely and cost effectively transition from high-carbon producing power assets to cleaner, greener, sustainable energy resources.
Create a proven pathway for the integration and enablement of renewable resources such as wind and solar as baseload power.
Accelerate the innovation timeline of carbon-neutral power generation technologies including hydrogen power and energy storage with the speed and scale our planet requires.
The progressive integration of renewable energy resources as baseload power is a positive change in our global energy landscape. However, it also creates challenging supply gaps for utilities when the wind stops blowing or the sun stops shining. Increasing the utilization of renewable energy assets on the grid today requires the increased deployment of quick-start dispatchable power as back up.
To accelerate the sustainable adoption of renewable power generation assets as baseload WattBridge is solving the dispatchability gap through the installation of highly efficient and reliable peaker plants engineered specifically for this application. The integration of clean and reliable natural gas powered aeroderivative turbine technology serving as back-up to wind and solar is a critical step in reducing emissions while maintaining safe and reliable energy production.
Peaker plants must be always at the ready to fill intermittent and sudden power gaps. When called on, they can ramp to full power in minutes and power down just as efficiently, however these units spend a great deal of each day idle. For this reason, the installed cost per kW of a peaker plant is crucial to enabling the sustainable adoption of carbon-neutral assets as baseload. Until PowerFLX, the industry did not have a cost-effective, scalable solution. Instead, it has relied on high operating cost older inefficient units to provide dispatchable power.
For the past decade, WattBridge through its parent company ProEnergy, has developed and refined a modular, flexible, power package that delivers the lowest installed cost per kW in the industry. WattBridge has created a simplified, integrated, and cost-effective pathway to support large scale renewable power generation utilizing high-efficiency LM6000 aeroderivative gas turbines.
Providing our customers with a single source point from inception through COD drives cost savings even higher and reduces costly errors. The vertical integration of industry leading manufacturing and EPC entities provides unmatched speed and precision in the development of critically needed peaker power stations.
At WattBridge we're not tied to a single technology. Our mission is to accelerate a reduced carbon energy future and we have the capabilities, resources and technical expertise to deliver. We’re already hard at work on the next level of responsible, green, energy production and storage technologies.
