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.

What is Gridcognition?

We’re here to help the people rolling out new energy assets to get both the best economic outcome for their stakeholders and the best environmental outcome to tackle the climate crisis.


Gridcognition enables you to  create a digital twin to explore and optimise your new energy options, before you change a thing.


As you implement your projects, you can update the digital twin to automatically syncronise with your deployed assets.


Gridcognition automatically tracks technical and commercial performance of assets to continually re-optimise the project design.

Thinking Energy

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.
