Current innovation projects

We have several projects ongoing with research institutes and other companies. Below are some examples of our current projects that are funded by EU or Business Finland.


Industrial Machine Learning for Enterprises (IML4E) project concentrates on software tools and methods making the development and operation of machine learning-based smart software more efficient, scalable and manageable and ML-based smart products and smart services more reliable, safe and trustworthy.

Granlund’s goal in the IML4E project is to advance our machine learning development and operation process and transform our service offering from reporting past events to predicting the future.

This project targets to develop sustainable solutions by innovative heat production, transmission and distribution optimization technologies in district heating and cooling (DHC) systems. These solutions are based on hybrid energy systems using renewable energies, large scale digital twins and high-performance operation control. The development is done in collaboration with Chinese (2 companies and 4 research organisations) and Finnish (1 company and 1 research organisation) partners.

Granlund’s development work focuses on development of energy and sustainability consultancy for hybrid energy systems and buildings in large scale neighbourhoods. Granlund’s already extensive knowledge on simulation and optimization, will be enhanced for larger areas and for the whole life cycle.
