Who we are

\n

A quarter of all energy in the world is consumed to heat industrial processes. The majority of that heat is supplied via very large steam networks, which is the biggest opportunity to decarbonise the industrial sector. Gradyent is on a mission to help industrial clients realise energy efficiency gains and decarbonise faster by digitising steam networks with our Digital Twin platform. Backed by a group of top investors, we are scaling the platform globally.

\n

We currently have a team of 60+ people and offices in Rotterdam (the Netherlands), the Nordics, Baltics, Germany, Poland, and Hungary. Our team combines programmers and energy specialists, data scientists and top-tier consulting alums. We are expanding quickly and looking for a Solutions Engineer to help us scale up our initiatives.

\n

What we do

\n

We offer a SaaS solution to create digital twins of heating networks. These digital twins, powered by AI and analytics, optimise (district) heating networks from heat sources to customers. As a result, we are transforming networks by reducing CO2 emissions and optimising operations in terms of temperatures, pressures, and other metrics. These AI solutions minimise energy usage, CO2 emissions and operating costs while maintaining the proper end-user service levels.
