Pittsburgh-based start-up kWantera and GE Renewable Energy have announced a technology alliance in which kWantera’s energy trading solution will complement GE’s Digital Wind Farm offering.

GE Renewable Energy says it is developing a partner network and engaging the start-up ecosystem to enhance its Digital Wind Farm and other digital products on its Predix platform.

According to the companies, the alliance will allow them to co-develop digital solutions that allow renewable energy customers to better manage operational risk and scheduling decisions.

“We are excited to partner with GE Renewable Energy to bring kWantera’s energy market enhancement technology to wind operators across the U.S.,” said Kyle O’Connor, CEO of kWantera.

kWantera uses technology and predictive analytics to build software tools for companies that buy, sell or consume energy in markets across North America. GE Ventures is an investor in the company.
