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.
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...
It was the one year anniversary of Gridcognition this month and we had our inaugural week-long company-wide retreat. This time it was virtual but we're hoping that our next one will be in-person. Gridcognition mission We started the week talking about our...
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...
