Home energy management company NET2GRID supports renewable energy use by offering an energy monitoring solution that utility companies can provide consumers for home use, but scaling to meet demand proved a challenge. The company’s customer base grew by 10 times in under 2 years.

NET2GRID used Amazon Web Services (AWS) to design, develop, and implement a new serverless architecture, reducing operating costs by 400–500 percent and increasing scalability to enable widespread access to energy metering. Through its new architecture on AWS, NET2GRID can offer a more cost-effective, commercially viable solution to utilities, which in turn can offer real-time home energy management to consumers.
