Greenlink was selected by the National Science Foundation to be part of the NSF I-Corps program. With this program, Greenlink has undertaken an intensive 6-months customer discovery process, during which we:
- travelled to 8 cities
- conducted 120 interviews
- surveyed 5 different industries
Our findings so far suggest that an electric system modeling tool capable of integrating consumer electricity use with electricity supply and accurately predicting the financial, social, and environmental impacts of that consumption is a need in the marketplace. We are a GO!
To that end, Greenlink has partnered with the City of Atlanta, NRDC, and the Southface Energy Institute as consultants on the Atlanta 100% Clean Energy plan. We are now using artificial intelligence enabled tool in stakeholder sessions and community conversation as a part of the participatory planning process the City of Atlanta is undertaking with this plan. It is a very exciting time to be doing this work!
