On October 25th, GreenSync brought together hundreds of leaders in energy tech to officially unveil deX Connect - open access middleware for technology vendors.
The landmark event, hosted in GreenSync’s very own industry collaboration space – The Greenroom celebrated all things deX Connect; the open access API, partner integrations and opportunities available for technology partners, today.
Paving the way for plug and play.
One year ago, GreenSync launched deX with a clear vision for decentralised energy and an open invitation to the industry to join the mission. Over the past 12 months, the deX team have brought to life the principles of ‘plug and play’ access for DER technology.
deX Connect enables access to open markets via a single fleet-wide integration completed technology providers using the deX API. This deX API has the potential to connect millions of devices – including virtual power plants, batteries, solar, inverters, monitoring solutions and other new ‘behind the meter’ assets. Through the deX Connect API technology providers have access to markets, partnerships and customers.
