All eyes are currently on the crisis in the energy sector, with towering prices and problematic supply grabbing the headlines. In the background, however, the energy transition remains in full swing. In its special report on Energy Transition Investment Trends 2022, Bloomberg predicts that energy companies will triple their investments in the transition to 100% green, renewable energy by 2025 and double them again by 2030.
In the meantime, the energy transition has sparked an explosion of data amongst energy companies. Solar panels, wind parks, smart meters and other new technologies all generate large amounts of new data, posing a real challenge for energy companies to process it. That is precisely where Gorilla comes in. Gorilla’s cloud-based data processing platform is capable of processing enormous amounts of data without the need for any special IT knowledge on the part of the user, enabling energy companies to make giant leaps forward in terms of efficiency and performance.
Gorilla, a spin-off from Belgian tech agency November Five, only appeared on the scene in 2018. But already, major energy companies such as British Gas, ScottishPower, Shell Energy and Engie are using the scale-up’s platform to generate powerful insights into both the production and consumption of energy. Gorilla currently operates with a workforce of 40 employees at its offices in Antwerp, London and Melbourne.
