about us

Geniess was founded in 2021 with a simple mission: To enable 24/7 clean electrification via accelerating distributed energy storage.

Energy storage is increasingly becoming an essential part of our energy system. From ensuring that variable renewable energy, such as solar and wind, can produce when consumers need it most to unlocking new forms of electrification, such as fast chargers for cars and even electric ferries. Energy storage forms the keystone of a complete clean electrified energy system. However, problems remain that slow adoption & deployment of energy storage.

Geniess was founded on the belief that better modeling can be used to understand & optimize the business case of a battery storage developer, enabling more profitable projects & accelerated adoption. Geniess combines world-leading expertise in batteries and software to enable better decision making and faster decarbonization.

What we do

Our software helps energy storage developers identify the right customers, right-size battery storage installations, and optimize the overall business case & system configuration. This means their clients can make battery decisions easier, faster and more profitable – meaning more positive investment decisions and tangible bottom-line impact.

Mission

We accelerate the the energy storage revolution by enabling better decision making for battery storage developers

The rapid decrease in costs of energy storage systems has made them more relevant than ever as part of our future energy system. However, with their versatility comes significant complexity. Geniess makes it easy to understand the economic potential of energy storage & microgrid investments; forecasting revenue, understanding the potential value stack, and modeling economic risk. This ensures these projects are bankable & value-adding earlier in the decision process.

Our team

Our shared values and beliefs feed our mission of accelerating the battery energy storage transition. Our team is building leading expertise in batteries and software. Together we inspire, support and set each other up for success.
