About Drift

Building a 100% renewable energy future together

The new energy market

We believe in a world that runs on 100% renewable power. All day. Every Day.

We believe that when people have the tools to do what's right, they can save the world.

We believe that renewable energy generators should be paid a fair price.

Since 2015, we have been building a smart energy marketplace that can handle the data volume and trading speeds needed to complete this mission.
