Accelerating confidence in your energy future

At Gridcognition, we believe that the world’s big problems need big nerds to solve them
and that computers do it better.

Where to from here?

With that in mind, our experienced data science and energy minds have created powerful software to simplify the complex data that should inform all new energy decisions.

By creating a powerful digital twin, we can analyse everything from energy system options, to the impact of wholesale markets and climatic variation, creating greater certainty than old school Excel-based planning.

Faster, simpler and more complete, Gridcognition will accelerate confidence in your energy future.

To build the technology that makes all this possible, we’ve assembled a crack team of energy gurus, software engineers and data scientists.
