LADE, a start-up company for the energy transition, develops AI-based solutions for energy management and charging infrastructure. At the heart of the technology is the world’s first AI-based energy management platform, LADEgreen. The system predicts electricity demand and renewable energy production several days in advance and optimizes consumption accordingly, for example by rescheduling charging processes to times when a lot of renewable energy is available. This makes energy use significantly cheaper and more environmentally friendly than with uncontrolled consumption. LADE was founded in Mainz, Germany, in 2020.
