Why We Exist
Decentralized Energy Future
As a group of utility professionals, we recognized today’s world of centralized energy will be replaced with distributed technology at the source of the demand. Since renewable energy and distributed technology has matured, energy can be generated onsite, eliminating the need for transmission and central generation. Lower costs and improved technology have given facility owners control in how energy is produced and who produces it. Businesses, facilities, and governments can control their energy supply to support sustainability, reliability, and resiliency goals. Maplewell set out to solve this need and deliver distributed energy resources (DERs) with renewable energy, energy efficiency, and energy management. With Energy as a Service, we bring our utility scale expertise to develop and deliver business driven energy solutions.

Dr. Dall'Anese is Maplewell's Chief Technology Officer. He previously was principal investigator on an ARPA-e Nodes program at NREL. His expertise is Optimization Theory, Control, and Signal Processing. A main objective of his research is to advance theory, algorithms, and analysis for decision systems and information processing. Particular focus is on the development of optimization, control, and learning methods for network systems and cyber-physical systems governed by complex physical, behavioral, and computational interdependencies. Current application domains include power systems, transportation systems, and machine learning.
Your Resource and Improvement is Investable
Independence, Efficiency, and Value
Concerned your resource or project is too small to develop? Payback too long?
Our Energy as a Service (EaaS) model shares the independence of an ESCO, the efficiency of a renewable energy developer, and value of a system integrator. With a technology-neutral approach, our professional engineers leverage a combination of technology to create an on-site renewable energy supply, reduce demand with energy efficiency, and control balance with energy management. As a single point of accountability, we develop and deliver projects while shielding financial and technical risk. By leveraging several financial mechanisms: ESPC, PPA, Leaseback, or Owner Financing, we structure financing to align with your operational needs. Projects can be funded with upfront capital or with future savings and revenue.
