Birmingham-based startup Grid Edge secures investment to support its journey to transform the carbon consumption of commercial buildings.

/grid edge mobileInnovative cleantech startup Grid Edge has just announced closure of a new £2m funding round with participation from bp ventures, Goldacre (part of the Noé Group) and Aston University.

The funding will be used to help accelerate the company’s mission to reduce the carbon footprint of the built environment. It also provides a platform to scale up and mature the business over the next 18-24 months and will enable it to reach more customers, develop new products and further grow its skilled team.

Following COP26, the vital importance of reducing carbon emissions has never been more apparent and with commercial buildings making up 40% of global carbon emissions, this funding marks an exciting turning point in reducing environmental impact in the built environment.

Tom Anderson, co-founder at Grid Edge, said: “This funding round further strengthens our collaboration with bp, Goldacre and Aston University, who have shown equal ambitions in accelerating the growth of Grid Edge. Optimising energy demand to reach net zero is now an essential requirement for businesses. We are proud to provide many leading companies with predictive AI technology to reduce energy consumption and save money.”

Now more than ever optimal energy management is an essential demand of businesses and consumers and so by leveraging smarter digital technologies, we can significantly reduce carbon emissions whilst making buildings more energy efficient. We look forward to supporting the Grid Edge team as they enter this exciting new business phase.”

Nacho Gimenez, managing partner at bp ventures, added : “Grid Edge’s predictive AI technology empowers building managers to reduce their energy demand, decrease costs and lower their carbon footprint, without the need for additional investment. It is a smart, simple and effective solution that is already making a difference to many building owners in the UK. We are delighted to continue to support them as they scale up and help drive forward the energy transition.”

We look forward to seeing how this investment impacts this innovative startup and the next stage of its journey and growth.
