We’re at a turning point in history. Climate change is changing the world faster than ever before.

At Gorilla, we’re determined to not stay stand by, but to make a real impact on the utility industry by providing data services that allow utilities to play the role they need to play in the quest for a net-zero society. By building something that solves a real problem, and by being the best at what we do.
