The UK’s energy system is undergoing a once-in-a-generation transformation. New technologies, smarter consumers and bold decarbonisation strategies are bringing rapid change to the energy system.
You can be part of this revolution.
At Grid Edge, we’re leading the way with how data and Artificial Intelligence can help building operators such as Airports, Shopping Malls or Office Buildings optimise their building’s energy, carbon and comfort profile. This empowers them to become active and intelligent participants in the emerging digital energy system.
What’s more, not only is the UK’s energy system going through a transformation, so is our Company. In August 2019, £2.5million of growth capital was secured from leading strategic investors, BP Ventures and Insight Investments.
Working in a start-up means many great things including the ability to quickly make a positive impact; to shape, mould and direct your work.
Our people love working here, and we would love to hire somebody in this new role to join the Grid Edge family who has the passion to help us grow and deliver value to our shareholders.
We also like to have a good time while we’re doing it. We provide fresh fruit and snacks, team days out and a training budget to keep your professional development on point.
If you like the sound of this get in touch, we’re looking forward to having you onboard
Grid Edge is an award-winning start-up company that provides commercial building operators with artificial intelligence software services to harness the power of building, energy and environmental data.
Vision: Empowered consumers. Intelligent flexibility.
At Grid Edge, we want to change the way that people use energy by putting data-driven, intelligent control into the hands of commercial energy consumers. We believe that empowered consumers should be at the heart of the 21st century energy system, and that flexibility should be its most valued commodity.
That’s why we are developing AI technology designed to sit on the consumer’s side of the meter. We focus on empowering consumers to harness the true value of their energy assets, on their terms.
Grid Edge is a ‘spin out’ company from Aston University. It was founded by three friends and colleagues from Aston’s Energy Research Institute – Jim Scott, Daniel Wright and Tom Anderson.
Before founding Grid Edge, Jim, Dan and Tom led a ground-breaking R&D project called ITHECA that demonstrated how complex energy systems could be intelligently optimised and controlled through the application of innovative machine-learning methods. The award-winning research and IP from the ITHECA project continues to inform the development of Grid Edge’s AI technology.
Grid Edge is home to a fantastic team of Data Scientists, Software Engineers and energy industry professionals. The business is backed by global investors including BP Technology Ventures, Insight Investments and Aston University.
