Bankable distributed energy project simulations

Gridcognition can help you plan, optimise and track the technical and commercial performance of decentralised energy projects.

Good Energy? Join the Team!

Want to help us accelerate the transition to a decentralised, decarbonised energy future? We’re recruiting now for key roles and if you want to help us shape the future energy system, we want you!

Are you up for it?

What does the future of energy look like?

Check out the Gridcognition Manifesto: The majority of replacement infrastructure will be smaller, smarter assets distributed throughout the built environment: a shift from big dumb machines to small smart machines.

What do you think?

Keep up to date

At Gridcognition, we’re always thinking energy – musings, ponderings, predictions – we can’t get enough of it. Stay up to date and follow our journey as we work to build the software that enables the future of energy around the world.

Don’t miss out!

The world is committed to zero-net carbon emissions by 2050.

A $10 trillion transition of the world’s energy and transport infrastructure has begun.

Building the future energy system needs bold, decisive action, and the leaders investing in these projects need to be confident they are making the right calls. That’s where we can help.

Energy infrastructure used to be owned by only a few large players, but decentralisation is radically enlarging the market. We’re here to help all the players in the new energy system get better outcomes from their decentralised energy projects.


We help energy providers offer customers more options, integrating distributed technology into supply agreements.

Plan & optimise multi-site, multi-asset decentralised energy projects.


These projects integrate energy markets, power networks, customer facilities, and highly flexible & steerable assets.

We’re here to help accelerate the transition to a decentralised, decarbonised energy future.

We’re here to help the people rolling out new energy assets to get both the best economic outcome for their stakeholders and the best environmental outcome to tackle the climate crisis.


Create a digital twin to explore and optimise your new energy options, before you change a thing.


As you implement your projects, you can update the digital twin to automatically synchronise with your deployed assets.


Automatically track technical and commercial performance of assets to continually re-optimise the project design.

Stay up to date and follow our journey as we work to build the software that enables the future of energy around the world.

A world first? Probably.

A world first? Probably.

Only a few years ago debate was running hot over whether even relatively low levels of renewable energy in the world's electricity grids was achievable, and back then "renewables" typically meant large utility-scale assets. Back then few people would have seen this...

Climate Tech 1000? We’re on the list!

Gridcognition was recently named in the Climate Tech 1000 “a list of the 1000 most promising Climate Tech startups and companies around the world”, and Top 100 in Australia New Zealand. The research project is a joint venture between HolonIQ and Climate Salad, with...

Reasons to be cheerful

So COP26 has kicked off this week in Glasgow.  The 2021 version of the Conference of Parties (that’s what COP stands for) likely heralds another round of geopolitical posturing, mudslinging and pledging from our world leaders.  The whole point of the COP events is to...
