Tantalus

There are many ways to make our use of electricity more sustainable: increase renewable generation, intelligently manage demand instead of firing up additional generators, or alternatively simply reduce our use and demand where possible. Each of these solutions require a much smarter grid and Tantalus, led by Eric, provides the hardware and software solutions to enable one.  Deployment of TUNet (Tantalus Utility Network) smart metering/grid solutions  has proven effective in motivating consumers to cut back energy use by 10% and electrical heating use by 18% while simultaneously allowing utilities to manage resources more effectively in real time and driving down operational costs.  Through Eric’s work in helping grow the organization, form industry partnerships and build strategic relationships with utilities across North America, he has continued to demonstrate the value of the CleanTech sector in ensuring sustainability in Canada’s future.
