Do you want to design part of the clean energy grid of the future?

Granular is a fast-growing climate tech startup developing a platform to help electricity consumers, producers and suppliers move towards 24/7 clean energy. Our SaaS platform gives our clients visibility over how electricity was produced on each hour using hourly energy certificates and allow them to trade clean energy with each other. You can find out more about the 24/7 energy space in this article.

We are active across Europe and the US and have partnered with leading power exchanges and grid operators, among others. Following a recent oversubscribed funding round, we are extremely well funded with a long runway.
