Our history

Sympheny was founded in April 2020 as a spinoff of the Urban Energy Systems Laboratory at Empa, an institute of the ETH Domain.

Sympheny’s core technologies in multi-energy systems optimization and analytics were developed and validated in various research projects carried out at Empa and ETH Zürich over a period of 7 years. Our continued partnership with Empa and ETH Zürich in these areas gives Sympheny an exceptional innovation capacity which enables us to deliver market-leading products and unique value to our customers.

Sympheny’s 4 cofounders – Andrew Bollinger, Matthias Sulzer, Boran Morvaj and Julien Marquant – are former colleagues at Empa with complementary specialties in data science, simulation and energy planning.  Our team combines deep knowledge of Sympheny’s underlying technologies with energy sector & business development expertise and startup experience.
