Making an impact

The transition toward a smarter and sustainable energy sector is a priority for utilities. Everything we do is designed to empower them to make this transition. We help utilities accelerate their technological shift so they can profit from new renewable power in the grid, optimize network operations and innovate the new services that customers now demand. We strive to meet and exceed our requirements for environmental awareness.

Our trailblazers

Greenbird’s founders 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 realized that utilities would benefit from using integration as a service. Greenbird and Utilihive were born.

Greenbird Begins

Greenbird was founded in 2010 by a group of passionate System Integrators who shared a common goal: to accelerate the energy transition by simplifying integration. Their work on multiple large-scale smart metering rollouts in Scandinavia provided the insights to help them on their quest. Armed with knowledge they realize using an iPaaS will liberate data to help speed up innovation for utilities.
