A new energy future is coming, ready or not.
Gridcognition is powerful software to help all the players in the energy system navigate the transition to a decentralised and decarbonised future.
VIRTUAL POWER PLANTS
COMMUNITY ENERGY SYSTEMS
We believe the future energy system will be renewable, electrified, and fully distributed.
The $3.5 trillion a year fossil fuel industry will disappear by 2050 and over $10 trillion will be invested in solar, wind and batteries ﹣ and this investment will be increasingly be in smaller, smarter, and more distributed assets.
Solar systems and battery storage scale down and are being installed close to loads to reduce energy transport costs and to enable co-optimisation with loads: electric vehicle charging, industrial and commercial load control, and home energy management systems.
Large-scale generators and large centrally managed power grids will increasingly give way to expanding distributed energy systems within microgrids, embedded networks, virtual power plants, community energy systems, and behind-the-meter renewable power systems.
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.
Aussie energy tech startup Gridcogniton have closed a $675k pre-seed investment round this week with some of Australia’s leading tech and clean energy investors. From a standing start in February 2020, co-founders Fabian Le Gay Brereton and Pete Tickler have assembled...
There’s a healthy debate underway in the energy sector around where battery energy storage assets should be located within electricity systems, in order to create the greatest possible value, both for their owners and for society more broadly. As a general rule, the...
There are three kinds of geeks at Gridcognition: energy geeks, data science geeks, and software geeks. I’m the third kind and I thought I’d share what I learnt last week when I was building a file uploader for Amazon S3. Making your own file uploader to s3 can be...
