Join the Team

At Gridcognition, we believe that the world’s big problems need big nerds to solve them.

Mission

There will be trillions of dollars of investment in distributed energy assets over the coming years and decades as the energy system becomes decentralised, electrified, and zero-emissions.

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

We’ll achieve our purpose by providing innovative software to plan distributed energy projects, anywhere in the world, including virtual power plants and microgrids, and to monitor and optimise the technical and commercial performance of distributed energy systems.
