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.
It's a question anyone who's deploying capital on DER, so assets like solar PV, battery storage, electric vehicle charging, hydrogen electrolysers etc, will be asking themselves. The fact is that distributed energy resources often exhibit quite dynamic behaviours and...
Today, countries representing 78% of global GDP have pledged net-zero emissions by 2060. And we hope that this level of commitment will rise significantly before the end of this decade. Energy from fossil fuels accounts for more than 70% of global emissions and, over...
Shifting the curve - analysing the effects of energy efficiency projects Problem We've been mostly focused on optimising distributed energy assets at Gridcognition, including solar, storage and EV charging. We thought we'd use our Hackathon at last weeks...
