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. What puzzled them was the enormous amount of time and resources going to waste when every utility had to start all the way from scratch when approaching systems integration. In an effort to fight these inefficient, costly, slow and risky processes, Greenbird and Utilihive were born. The founders realized that utilities would benefit from acquiring system integration as a service.
