Tygron Geodesign Platform for energy companies

The Tygron Geodesign Platform is fully integrated multifunctional software used for any issues in spatial planning. It’s an integrated instrument that makes topics such as water, traffic, air quality and energy transparent as it’s based on layers of real data interacting with each other in a realistic way. The Tygron platform can be used to review any problem or issue you may have.

The reason for its versatility is that it’s based on layers of real data mutually interacting with each other in a realistic way. The Tygron platform can be used to review any problem or issue you may have. Scenarios are checked based on verified calculation models enabling ample time for thorough analyses of solutions and iterations.

The Tygron Platform provides a powerful tool to explore various scenarios, review plans and involve stakeholders in the decision-making process throughout all the stages of the project. By providing all the necessary tools and resources we are building consensus and thereby saving time and money.

For energy companies, this typically includes topics such as the Environmental Act, energy transitions, stress tests and the environment.

These energy companies are now working with the Tygron Geodesign Platform.


Alliander and Tygron have developed a smart and open energy network in cooperation with the municipality of Zaanstad. This has produced a practical simulation tool displayed as a 3D world called HEAT. “This makes the discussions among all the partners more transparent and helps to come to specific plans and accountability.”

Through Tygron’s interactive game, participants place themselves in different roles with different interests from those they normally have. The resident becomes a public servant, the public servant becomes a developer, the developer takes on the role of a citizen. The game technology provides for joint solutions to complex issues in the energy transition.
