About the company:
Bidgely (which means 'Electricity” in Hindi) is an innovative technology startup which aims for disaggregation of power consumption at a household level.
In countries like USA & UK and Japan there is peak load pricing applicable on electricity bills unlike India(where fixed per unit charge is applicable).To help out the consumers understand when and where they can save the electricity most by understanding usage patterns , hourly analysis, giving notifications if usage is more and bill predictions. It uses data analytics and pattern finding techniques on power consumption graphs to calculate the power consumed by each individual device in a household without plug-in monitors.
Founded in 2011 by Abhay Gupta and Vivek Garud out of a Mountain View garage, Bidgely has come a long way. It got recognized as an Energy Innovation Pioneer at 2015 IHS EnergyCERAWeek for using ground-breaking Saas analytics for transforming energy usage and was also voted as one of the top 100 clean technology companies worldwide by CleanTech.
