We Fuel Innovation in the Energy Business

There is a revolution going on in the energy business. Utilities depending on yesterday’s business models will be outsmarted by digital utilities that will serve a society in need of smarter energy solutions. With Utilihive we empower utilities to be ready for the future in months instead of years, enabling them to optimize grid operations, embrace the data economy, and to become a platform operator for smart city applications infrastructure.

The Greenbird Story

The founders of Greenbird have extensive experience of systems integration derived from large scale smart metering rollouts in the Nordic countries. It struck them that every utility was starting from scratch when they approached systems integration, wasting enormous amounts of time and resources. They wanted to find a way to fight these inefficient, costly, slow and risky processes. The founders realised that utilities would benefit from using integration as a service. Greenbird and Utilihive were born.
