Grid Edge wins 'Best Start Up' at 2016 Silicon Canal Tech Awards 

Tom Anderson, Co-Founder:

"We are delighted to have won the ‘Best Start-Up’ Award at the 2016 Silicon Canal Tech Awards, held at Boxxed, Birmingham on Thursday 3rd November.

Winning this award really caps off an incredible year for Grid Edge. We founded Grid Edge because we saw that poor energy management was costing building owners more than £4billion per year. And it’s a problem that’s getting worse. Building owners not only face the prospect of rising energy costs but they also need to respond to the changing technical environment they find themselves in. We call this problem “buildings behaving badly!” But of course it doesn’t have to be this way. Our Artificial Intelligence software works in harmony with a building’s existing energy management system and provides a bolt-on solution to intelligently control and optimise complex building energy loads.

We proud to be part of Birmingham’s fast-growing tech scene and delighted to be recognised by our industry peers in this way.”

The 2016 Silicon Canal Tech Awards, organised by Silicon Canal, celebrate the best technology companies in Birmingham. Silicon Canal is a not-for-profit organisation with the aim of building a bigger, stronger tech ecosystem for Greater Birmingham.
