What's it all about?

The balance of power in the energy industry needs to change.

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.
