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.
The TL;DR We simulated the same behind-the-meter commercial solar and battery project across the 14 distribution networks that make up the WEM and NEM. We found that there could be up to a 150% difference in the network tariff savings based on the very same...
In September 2020, the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission issued Order 2222, which removed barriers to the participation of distributed energy resources (DERs) in wholesale electricity markets for energy, capacity, and ancillary services. DERs including roof-top...
On 1 October 2021 the National Electricity Market on Australia’s east coast will take the significant step of moving from 30-minute to 5-minute settlement. This will doubtless have lots of interesting ramifications, one of which is likely to be that anyone who...
