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.


What our customers say

Daniel Moll, CEO aventron Norway

"Aventron's business is very long-term oriented, so we like to do a thorough due diligence before committing to a supplier, whether it is power plant equipment or software - but we also like to be 'ahead of the curve'. That's why it's great that we were able to very quickly set up a trial of the HYDROGRID solution and we are excited to follow the results in the online dashboard on a daily basis!"

Rune Otterstad, CEO FosenKraft Energi

"Our ecological responsibility is very important to us at Fosenkraft. That's why I am happy that the HYDROGRID system allows us to automatically manage our water resources in accordance with the requirements of the local community and fishermen."

Wolfgang Kröpfl, CEO enso hydro

“We can wholeheartedly recommend HYDROGRID as a partner for hydro power owners and investors: We were impressed with their power market expertise and rapid operational integration, but most importantly we can count on them to deliver results as projected.”

Oyvind Brattland, CEO Haneseth Energi

Hourly optimization is very resource intense and requires a lot of forecasting and planning tasks - something I have limited time for. I am very happy that my power station Kvina is now being automatically operated in an optimal way. It saves me plenty of time which I can use on other important matters. It is also very easy and fun to follow the forecast and dispatch strategy via the INSIGHT dashboard and observe that we are capturing the full potential of the plant.



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.
