Picture this. A world with no limits to growth for renewable energy.

Tensor Energy was born in Japan in 2021, with the idea that our zero-carbon distributed renewable energy future will need an operating system.

By building this operating system, we are accelerating the deployment of solar, wind and battery storage globally, and setting a new standard for long-term management of renewable energy assets.
