About the future of energy
What is Limejump?
We get asked this all the time.
The answer is that there is nothing precisely like Limejump.
Limejump is the leading Energy Tech company in the world.
Limejump is changing the way the world transacts energy. By embracing technology, machine learning algorithms and human trading ability, we realise the unrealisable, to truly deliver renewable resources where demand requires electricity, in sub-second speed. Limejump’s Virtual Power Platform is an aggregation of flexible energy generation and storage assets of different sizes and technology types. Our goal is to deliver 100% renewable energy at all times to our customers through the direct real-time connectivity between renewable energy sources, storage flexibility such as batteries and demand response. We use our tools, data science and Artificial Intelligence (AI), to fight the impact of climate change, with the ultimate ambition of delivering a sustainable energy future. Limejump created history by being the first energy company to trade an aggregated unit and the first to trade batteries in the UK Balancing Mechanism market. We manage the largest portfolio of batteries in the United Kingdom. With an eye on completing the energy puzzle in the UK between supply and demand for renewables, Limejump is leading the way to a truly renewable future.
