The trillion $ global energy transformation means when we use energy dictates how clean, cheap or local it is.

So at emhTrade we believe that helping people change when they use power, and rewarding them for it, helps people use more affordable power and improves returns from investments in clean tech.

We do this by changing when energy is used, optimising demand, storage and appliances with what drives costs and carbon in the supply chain.

It's a journey that increases electricity retailer, network and clean tech asset (i.e. PV, EV) owners margins and delivers exceptional engagement!

Our story


We created the Transactive Energy (TE) platform as we saw current electricity solutions were not giving people control to meet their personal needs. This has real impacts - avoidable costs and carbon in the electricity system.

As we decarbonise and digitise power, when people use power increasingly impacts its cost and the climate .

TE enables retailers, utilities, communities and renewables powered businesses to engage consumers, assets and devices to use cleaner, cheaper and local power.

White label retail platform

A New Zealand regulatory compliant retail platform for new entrant retailers. This can provide a full standalone platform for embedded or island micro-grids anywhere in the world where they fall outside other regulatory requirements.


Micro-grids, embedded networks and community energy

We increase returns on your investment in solar PV and batteries. We do this as we optimise resource use and demand to maximise revenues and minimise network, other energy or back up diesel costs.


Peer-to-peer solar share and virtual energy communities

A retail capability to match consumers generating PV with other consumers taking that PV. This allows schools, businesses or other
hosts to share or donate power to specific groups in their communities or anyone with solar to share to others without it.

The TE App - delivering exceptional consumer engagement

Exceptional engagement

We cut costs, carbon driving peaks and customer churn whilst encouraging greater use of intermittent renewables to assist with integration.

Our product delivers a new exceptional engagement experience and we know it resonates:

• 50% demand reduction on an advised critical peak by 15% of users.

• 60-80% weekly engagement rates.

PowerPal is trade marked in New Zealand, and only applies for use in New Zealand. Customers may white label the app or use APIs in all markets.
