What we do
Everything we do supports our mission - 100% clean energy for every organisation.
Being sustainable is a process that is different for every organisation. We create a custom roadmap towards 100% clean energy for every organisation we work with, so that everyone knows what steps to take. We’ll help with project completion, maintenance and offer the advice you need. We’ve got the answers you need to make your organisation more sustainable.
Less energy waste thanks to smart meters and our Waste Alert. Harness the power of the sun and wind and access energy storage. Gain more control and lower costs through smart management. Purchase sustainable electricity automatically and intelligently from producers in your region - without needing the help of a traditional energy supplier. Find all this and more on the Groendus Energy Marketplace. Groendus also facilitates electricity storage in batteries.
We map your entire energy administration in a clear, data-driven platform called My.Groendus. Smart meters and artificial intelligence provide insight and action and Groendus provides all the services you need for smart, sustainable and affordable energy management. Will you join us?

Our investorsThe driving force behind Groendus
APG & OMERS
APG is one of the most active global infrastructure investors and is looking into supporting companies that focus on renewable energy assets and innovative solutions for the energy transition. Jan-Willem Ruisbroek, Head of Global Infrastructure Investment Strategy at APG, says: “APG is excited to announce the investment in Groendus, which is a rare opportunity in the accelerating Dutch energy transition space and fits the core of our strategy. As a pension investor, we are continuously looking for attractive, long-term, responsible investments. Not only do we expect solid returns, it also contributes to APG’s ambition to support the development and scale up of technology enabling a rapid energy transition in the Netherlands as well as the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
We are grateful to NPM for establishing the Groendus platform which serves as a foundation of future growth and look forward to working together with OMERS in the years to come to support Groendus in its mission and ensure a long-term, stable and sustainable investment return for our pension fund client APB and its participants.”
Pension administrator APG and Canadian OMERS Infrastructure announced on 18 May 2022 that they would acquire Groendus from NPM Capital and Meewind in the third quarter of 2022. A press release with more information can be found via the following link.
