Dr Smood partners with renewable energy technology company Drift

By increasing accessibility to both nutritious food and clean energy, the partnership helps address two of the most pressing concerns of our time: health and climate change.

Not only do we always serve 100% certified organic food, but now we also use only 100% renewable energy. We are excited to share our new partnership with Drift, the renewable energy and technology company, to provide 100% renewable energy to all our New York City cafes, furthering our goals of being as environmentally sustainable as possible. What does that mean? It means that Dr Smood New York City cafes will run on sun, wind, solar, and other bio-friendly sources of energy that aren’t depleted when used and do not contribute to environmental pollution.  

Drift is the only power market in the world that is built to handle the data volume and trading speeds necessary to get to a world that runs on 100% renewables. All day. Every day. The company uses a distributed network of independent energy producers, machine learning, and high-frequency trading to seamlessly match supply and demand in real time. 

The company will monitor Dr Smood’s power consumption and then purchases the matching amount of renewable power, and transfers that power to other Dr Smood locations on the local New York grid. By increasing accessibility to both nutritious food and clean energy, the partnership helps address two of the most pressing concerns of our time: health and climate change.  

“Drift is a fantastic partner, helping us achieve our goal of being as environmentally sustainable as possible,” said Niels Ranum, CCO/Partner of Dr Smood. “Our cafes require a lot of power with refrigeration, ventilation, appliances, and more. The annual emissions avoided by switching all of our NYC locations to Drift is equivalent to the emissions sequestered by 267 acres of forest.”

“We are incredibly proud to have Dr Smood as a customer and partner,” said Greg Robinson, CEO of Drift. “Dr Smood makes it easier for busy New Yorkers to eat healthy foods, and Drift makes it easier for those same people to switch to renewable power. This partnership helps pave the way to a healthier and cleaner future for everyone.”
