The balance of power in the energy industry needs to change. The intermittency of renewable supply and the constant demands of the grid mean that we still rely on less efficient, more expensive and unsustainable fossil fuels to keep the lights on. At Gridfuse, our mission is to shift this balance through technology. To shift the balance of inputs, so that renewables become the world's main source of electricity. To shift the balance of the grid by building renewable power pools that can balance themselves in the face of unpredictability and intermittency.
It takes a unique team to meet this vision. So, if you’re a data geek who sees the big picture, or a software engineer with a passion for a greener world, or simply someone who sees challenges and thinks in solutions, come join us at Gridfuse.
