The electric grid is experiencing a massive shift from predictable, but dirty, fossil fuel generation, to less predictable renewable generation. In order for the grid to absorb all this new variable energy while maintaining reliability, it requires a massive amount of flexible demand and supply.
Leap aims to make global energy markets accessible to anyone, starting with demand response and expanding into generation and ancillary services.
Leap is a new marketplace where distributed energy resources, such as batteries and electric vehicles, find access to participate in the wholesale energy market to perform these flexibility requirements and get paid for their performance.
Founded by Dutch entrepreneurs (Distimo, Enphase) in San Francisco with an engineering office in Utrecht (NL), Leap is a privately held company with funding from well-known energy entrepreneurs and VCs.
We continue to maintain a (very nice) office in the heart of Utrecht, we have accepted distributed teams as our new normal. We encourage you to apply from outside of The Netherlands.
We’d love to meet creative and curious individuals who are as committed as us to shape the grid of the future.
