Shared Electric

Catalyzing the Indian Solar Revolution with an affordable energy monitoring device

Shared Electric GmbH is a company founded by two graduates from ETH Zürich, Switzerland in 2014. For more than a year they have been working towards the future of electricity grids with demand-side participation, renewable energy and a smarter grid.

Right now, they are the team behind Solar Family, a new project that will be officially launched at Lift India, where energy data from every single solar installation in India will be gathered in one place in real-time. Solar Family will catalyze the Indian Solar Revolution. A step in this process is reaching out to solar rooftop PV installers in India. They do it by providing them with an affordable energy monitoring device, app for client engagement and other services.
