The Digitalisation of the Distribution Grids Starts with us
“The energy transition takes place in the distribution grid. With our know-how in energy systems, software and AI we create the foundation for distribution grid digitalisation.“
Artur Löwen, CEO and Founder
Observability in Distribution Grids
Full grid transparency at the lowest cost
Preparation of Grid Models
We prepare the grid models so they can be used for following processes. The result is a computable grid model in CGMES format, the digital (grid) twin.
Utilising Measurement Data
The Gridhound software analyses your measurement data and checks for errors and inconsistencies. Measurement data is an essential element for further digital processing, e. g. also for state estimation.
Based on information theoretical methods, our software determines the grid points with the maximum information density. This allows the minimization of required hardware and ensures an optimum selection of the measurment points, also taking into account economic aspects.
Our AI system is able to learn the behaviour of the distribution grid and to estimate the electrical parameters at all other network elements on the basis of very few measurement points. This enables us to establish complete observability in the distribution grid.
Our patented AI processes form the core of our product suite Graice
(GRid Artificial Intelligence Computing Engine).
Our product suite Graice is constantly being improved in cooperation with our customers.
We also grow our solution in research projects, including here:
SOGNO (Service Oriented Grid for the Network of the Future) aimed to develop a cost-effective automation solution for distribution system operators to fully monitor and control the infrastructure. Learn more.
The objective of ADMS (“Advanced Distribution Monitoring System”) was to develop a modern advanced distribution monitoring system. Learn more.
The RESERVE project has developed and tested new technologies that allow a stable supply from renewable resources. Learn more.
You have successfully completed your Master in Electrical Engineering with a focus on Electrical Power Engineering? You have a good understanding of grid calculation, grid simulation and grid components?
Gridhound is a spin-off of E.ON Energy Research Center at RWTH Aachen University and has positioned itself as the leading AI start-up in the field of state estimation for distribution grids.
The use of AI provides the energy industry with much needed data – especially for operation and planning. Gridhound promotes the energy transition through its contribution to digitalisation, automation and transparency in the distribution grid.

Our company advisory board is built up of high-class experts:
Professor Klaus-Dieter Maubach is a member of several bodies of energy enterprises, including the chairman of the supervisory board of Uniper SE, Düsseldorf. As Chairman of the Advisory Board, he supports Gridhound in questions of strategy, financing and energy management.
Prof. Dr. Klaus-Dieter Maubauch
“Gridhound is a true pioneer in the use of AI in the electricity sector. Distribution system operators must keep up with the ever-increasing challenges posed by the energy transition. With Gridhound’s AI-based software, grid operators gain complete transparency, more quickly and at a significantly lower cost, as to how existing grid capacities can be optimally utilised or where grids need to be expanded.”
Robert Hienz is COO of the Mobility House scale-up and previously held various executive positions in German and European energy companies (including CEO E.ON Energie Deutschland GmbH, CFO E.ON France S.A.S.). With his in-depth knowledge of the European energy sector and his many years of management and sales experience, he supports Gridhound in its business development and in further establishing itself in the European market.
Professor Antonello Monti is head of the Institute for Automation of Complex Power Systems at the E.ON Energy Research Center (ERC) of RWTH Aachen University and group leader at Fraunhofer FIT, Center for Digital Energy, Aachen. Before joining RWTH Aachen University, he was a Ph.D. Professor of Electrical Engineering at the University of South Carolina. Gridhound is a spin-off of the E.ON ERC and Professor Monti continues to support the company as a visionary and idea provider.
