Grid Edge was formed as a spin out company from Aston University in 2016.
The founders began their ground-breaking work on intelligent energy management at Aston’s prestigious European Bioenergy Research Institute (EBRI) where they led a £1.1million industrial R&D project (ITHECA) that inspired the first generation of our AI-based software.
