Summary

Summary: 
The Spanish engineering company created a proprietary technology to manage and save energy in buildings and companies that use smart meters. After several years in the Spanish market, the company seeks partners for licensing agreements in European countries.

Description

Description: 

A Spanish energy engineering company, founded in the year 2014, specialized in innovative, advanced and high technology solutions in the field of energy. The company has carried out different activities such as energy audits, lighting, monitoring of facilities. As energy managers, they have developed a web platform for the realization of efficient management of energy for commercial, institutional, and industrial customers, as well as utilities and electric power grid operators.

The platform uses complex algorithms to make simple, usable sense of the massive amount of energy data being collected by utility smart meters, and private and public energy data sources, providing energy screening for building portfolios targeting the buildings with the highest saving potential, and providing energy saving conservation measures, without going on site, or installing additional connected devices. What makes the difference with respect to other companies is the technological experience in energy analysis, monitoring, and control.

With this product, the company is prepared to improve the productivity of energy analysis through the automation of energy audit processes: data collection, data analysis, and energy recommendation measures. The company has been selling the product in Spain, and now seeks new partners for the European countries.

The expected result of this international cooperation is that the company is related to the collaboration through a mutual benefit by a licensing agreement. The international cooperation is carried out through a "Software as a Service" contract or technological collaborations.

Advantages & innovations

Cooperation plus value: 
Buildings spend billions in energy and are fundamental to the EU's energy efficiency policy, according to the EU Commission Report, almost 40% of final energy consumption and 36% of gas emissions greenhouse gases are in buildings. Today, the efficiency of buildings is largely a manual approach. Energy efficiency engineers spend a lot of time walking around buildings, collecting information and using obsolete tools to identify and evaluate energy savings. The company will help solve the problem, changing from a manual approach to an automated process thanks to the implementation of smart meters. The firm has developed customer intelligence platform that allows the customers to increase savings of energy efficiency in buildings at a cost of 5 to 10 times lower and higher speed than traditional approaches in commercial buildings and industrial facilities, providing energy analysis that provides information and recommendations to help target buildings, attract customers, convert projects and track opportunities more effectively and at scale. The solution designed has a very clear competitive approach: to provide information on the energy consumption for a portfolio of buildings in a fraction of the time and cost. The company aims to reduce costs up to 80-90% of on-site analysis and delivery time up to 80%. The intelligence platform suit of tools provides a closed loop energy efficiency cycle, the organizations can: 1. Target installations or buildings and engage utilities customers. 2. Then assess and recommend energy conservation measures, both operational and retrofit opportunities. 3. Convert energy efficiency projects and finally track the energy savings.

Partner sought

Cooperation area: 
The company is looking for utilities, energy trading companies, engineering companies or energy services, public entities for licensing agreements. The fields of activity on which the company wants to work are Intelligent energy management in buildings, monitoring, and analysis of energy management, analysis of energy efficiency opportunities in building portfolios, measurement and verification of energy savings.
