Better tech, better decisions, a better world – we’re making it happen.

Unlike any other organization, Pecan Street is focused on advancing original research and accelerating climate and conservation solutions.

One of a Kind.

Pecan Street conducts groundbreaking data research and product testing in the energy, water, transportation and agriculture sectors.

Our network of volunteer research participants across the nation is the first of its kind on the planet.

Our commercialization lab is an affordable, world-class proving ground for major corporations and startups alike.

And our database, the largest source of disaggregated customer energy and water data on the planet, is used by university researchers, entrepreneurs, and advocacy groups around the world.

Innovation In the Field

Pecan Street’s research network is the only real-world electricity-gas-water test bed on the planet. It includes data from more than 1,000 homes, 250 solar homes and 65 electric vehicle owners. Energy generation and use are measured at intervals ranging from one second to one minute — 24/7/365 – and can be analyzed down to the circuit level to glean insight into how energy is used, generated, and stored.

Innovation In Communities

We started strong in Texas and have strategically grown our network to include participants in 10 states and Puerto Rico. Our expansion has focused on improving racial, house type, weather, fuel mix, urban/rural, and income representation in energy research and leveraging the expertise of local community-based organizations who know the neighborhoods, the neighbors, and the unique energy challenges and opportunities of each region.
