Securing energy supply for a growing global population in harmony with environmental sustainability will be one of the greatest challenges of the 21st century. To tackle this problem will only be possible if renewable generation can be harnessed and dispatched to match consumer needs in real-time. Our aim is for HYDROGRID to be part of that solution.


Empower Intrapreneur­sHIP


A transition to a carbon free future is only possible if renewable energy sources are also profitable. So by helping our customers to increase their revenues, we also encourage additional investment in hydro generation assets. We think win-win in all business relationships and strive to align our interests with our customer’s results. That is why we have designed our business model to be performance based.

Empower Intrapreneur­ship

We take pride in our unique technology, but most importantly, we recognize that it is our team that brings us our success. We want everyone at HYDROGRID to not only be great at their job but also to love doing it and to feel ownership of their role in moving the company in the right direction. To reflect this, we have implemented a compensation scheme that allows everyone at HYDROGRID to share in the company‘s success.


It is a given that we strive to be as financially successful as possible in order to add value for our shareholders. At the same time, we believe it is our duty to also set a goal beyond ourselves: That is why HYDROGRID’s shareholder agreement dedicates a fixed portion of our earnings to projects that bring clean water and sustainable energy to the poorest 10% of the world‘s population.
