Why would you be interested in Flex Communities

Reduce emissions

Without reducing comfort

Help energy transition


  • Get involved in a promotion for Domestic Hot Water that will help reduce carbon emissions from water heating without having an impact on comfort.
  • If you enjoy the experience and you want more, we will include other electricity demands like space heating, electric vehicle charging and provide a mechanism for integrating solar PV.
  • Your involvement will influence how we develop an approach that will become central to the energy transition over the next 3-5 years.

Stemy Energy

Stemy Energy was created with the mission to reduce the energy bill of end-users, reduce their carbon footprint, and promote a more sustainable energy system, using learning tools to participate in the ancillary services market in real time whilst managing the demand simultaneously.

Stemy Energy was founded by Alvaro, Jaime and Francisco, experts with 20 years of experience working in high performance intelligence in the electricity sector. It was born from a project called SPLODER, which evolved into a commercial product as it proved successful. Stemy has worked with spanish utilities in multiple projects, and has a working platform with homes all over Spain. Now, Stemy's goal is to adapt their platform to the UK electric market, in collaboration with Bath & West Community Energy.
