I’d almost forgotten how energizing industry events can be, until the recent Tech23 Showcase held in Sydney.
Australia is leading the world on the deployment of distributed generation and South Australia is the poster child for this; we had events last year where almost all of SA’s electrical load was met by roof-top solar.
Nudged along by Anthony Seipolt‘s post on AGL Australia offering a new retail tariff incentivising residential customers to turn off their solar systems in return for some cash
Only a few years ago debate was running hot over whether even relatively low levels of renewable energy in the world’s electricity grids was achievable, and back then “renewables” typically meant large utility-scale assets.
Gridcognition was recently named in the Climate Tech 1000 “a list of the 1000 most promising Climate Tech startups and companies around the world”
The 2021 version of the Conference of Parties (that’s what COP stands for) likely heralds another round of geopolitical posturing, mudslinging and pledging from our world leaders.
Australia has some of the longest distance and lowest density transmission and distribution networks in the world.
Alice joined the Gridcognition team in March 2021, and it’s safe to say she hit the ground running!
Gridcognition has been announced today as one of eight Australian businesses to receive a share of $3.9 million in funding through the Ministry of Industry, Science and Technology.
WDR has many considerations. The two top priorities for most prospective participants are eligibility and commercial reward.

The federal election is barrelling towards us, or perhaps not coming fast enough. Regardless, you may be wondering what the parties battling for our votes have planned for Australia’s energy system.
We’ve talked about the use-cases for battery energy storage systems, but what are the qualities that make one battery energy storage system (BESS) better or worse for a given use-case?
Our job at Gridcognition is help our customers plan and optimise distributed energy projects.
We’ve been told that battery energy storage systems are an essential part of the world’s future energy system – but how, exactly?
This week Australia’s Energy Security Board released its Post-2025 Market Design Options Paper.
In the recent episode of the Interchange, Smarter Grid Solutions Podcast, host Shayle Kann spoke with Michael Terrell, Google’s Director of Energy about their goal to reach 24/7 Carbon Free Energy by 2030.
The minimum viable product (MVP) is a concept deeply ingrained into startup culture.
It’s a question anyone who’s deploying capital on DER, so assets like solar PV, battery storage, electric vehicle charging, hydrogen electrolysers etc, will be asking themselves.
Today, countries representing 78% of global GDP have pledged net-zero emissions by 2060.
Shifting the curve – analysing the effects of energy efficiency projects
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.
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.
There’s a healthy debate underway in the energy sector around where battery energy storage assets should be located within electricity systems, in order to create the greatest possible value, both for their owners and for society more broadly.

Going toe-to-toe with the US election for media attention, this week saw the announcement of another huge battery storage project for Australia.
After days of counting, today it has become clear that Joe Biden will be the next President of the United States.
The transition to decarbonised and decentralised energy systems is occurring in lockstep with the growth in e-mobility.
For many organisations (like Google with their commitment to 24/7 Carbon-Free Energy) optimising the design and operation of their DER assets isn’t just about dollars and cents; the environmental return is just as important.
