Who we are:

Innovari has built an advanced technology platform that helps utility companies manage and deliver reliable, affordable energy in real time.

Innovari’s solution, which adds intelligence to both the generation and consumption side of the grid, behaves like a virtual power plant and securely sits alongside other regulated utility company assets and business models. With extensive machine-learning capabilities, the Interactive Energy platform adapts quickly to demand changes such as those brought about by weather, rapid urban growth and the inconsistencies of alternative energy generation.
