Smart cities deserve smart energy solutions
By 2050, more than 6.5 billion people will live in cities - over 2 billion more than today.1 That’s a lot of vehicles, buildings and infrastructure devices and lights. And 50% of the energy required to power it all will be renewable.2
The appetite for energy puts enormous pressure on the grid. We see an opportunity to deliver smart energy solutions anywhere while making our urban centers safer, cleaner, better places to live and work.
Working with leading companies in renewable energy, mobility infrastructure, grid management and lighting, we deliver complete and customized smart energy and solar solutions that will power our cities today and into the future.
We bring cutting-edge technologies, manufacturing at scale and circular economy supply chains to your projects. We build solar products that help minimize your impact on the grid.
Markets we serve
- Metering and grid edge
- Mobility infrastructure
- Smart and industrial lighting
Metering and grid edge
Increasingly, cities are turning to silicon-based digital grids to replace electromechanical devices. These digital systems require complex hardware and sophisticated software. We build smart meters, digital controllers, sensors and state-of-the-art protection devices.
But modernization is not just about new technology on existing energy sources. It’s also about leveraging alternative energy. We help leading energy companies transform the electricity grid at scale – speeding the transition toward a decentralized, distributed electric grid.
While much discussion is around electric and autonomous vehicles, mobility itself is transforming – and so is the means of powering it.
We support the most innovative, global companies in the design, manufacturing and distribution of charging infrastructure solutions to enable the move from carbon to lithium-based transportation.
We have over a decade of experience in the design, production and optimization of solar modules and inverters. We put our knowledge to work every day to design and build next-generation solar module technologies based on our cutting-edge photovoltaic solutions.
NEXTracker, a Flex Company, provides the world’s most advanced single-axis solar trackers helping many of the largest utility companies with supply chain and manufacturing solutions that optimize both costs and performance.
