About Sympower

Our Story

Sympower was founded in 2015, driven by the mission of shaping an intelligent and green power system via advanced flexibility software solutions that enhance the value of energy assets. Sympower was born international. With dedicated teams based in five countries, we are able to react quickly and create extra value wherever opportunities arise. Our outstanding international cross-sector knowledge and experience is actively contributing to a carbon-free future.

A Sustainable Grid

We unlock revenue streams by maximising the value of flexibility across energy markets and industries. Flexibility means temporarily adjusting power generation and consumption based on its value and the grid’s needs. We buy flexibility to stabilise the grid, rewarding our customers in return. Flexibility is vital for a successful energy transition, that is why we are pushing traditional industries to be more sustainable and enabling the shift from fossil fuels to renewables.

What’s in a name:

Sym- comes from the Ancient Greek word σύν meaning “with”, or “together”. It is the root of words such as symphony, sympathy and symbiosis. Sympower orchestrates electricity consumption and production.
