People powering people

Shine creates the future of people powering people. Shine’s innovative software enables customers to actively take part in the undeniable journey towards de-central energy production and consumption.

Shine advises its customers where to best source local energy from, informs when and how it makes sense to produce own energy and optimises all the energy flows in the house to reach the maximum benefit. It aims to be the single point of contact for every consumer for all power and energy needs.

The innogy Innovation Hub sees decentralisation and digitisation as the cornerstones for the future energy system: Shine´s vision to create a world of millions of connected energy producing and consuming houses, significantly contributes to this.
