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.
Going toe-to-toe with the US election for media attention, this week saw the announcement of another huge battery storage project for Australia. Imaginatively dubbed the Victorian 'Big Battery', the project, which is to be located near Geelong in Victoria on...
After days of counting, today it has become clear that Joe Biden will be the next President of the United States. He has declared that addressing climate change is “the No 1 issue facing humanity” and has promised $2 trillion in climate spending and policies to put...
The transition to decarbonised and decentralised energy systems is occurring in lockstep with the growth in e-mobility. Whether it's countries ratcheting up emissions standards, outright bans on new sales of internal combustion engine vehicles or the auto...
