This SME is focused on the fields of energy and environment. The SME has a wide experience in the implementation of technologies for the generation and management of electrical energy using renewable sources. Furthermore, the SME has a strong knowledge in energy management aimed at reducing consumption and achieving energy savings and is specialized in technologies based in Demand Side Management through machine learning, big data and business intelligence.
Aligned with the energy saving goal, the SME has developed a technology that makes possible to optimise the energy consumption of any type of plant or industrial installation based on the concept of energy flexibility. To do so, it uses artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms, data capture from the plant or facility itself (consumption, specific boundary conditions, time and/or process restrictions, equipment, etc.) and data from other sources that determine the convenience of redefine the schedule of the processes of the plant such as the electricity pool price.
It also has experience in the implementation of smart solutions and digitization.
The SME has extensive experience in the participation in Horizon 2020 projects with roles related to energy efficiency and flexibility, demand response, smart solutions, digitization and generation and management of energy using renewable sources. The SME is interested in joining a consortium in the GREEN DEAL call LC-GD-6-1-2020 “Testing and demonstrating systemic innovations in support of the Farm-to-Fork Strategy” - SUBTOPIC B “Achieving climate neutral food businesses by mitigating climate change, reducing energy use and increasing energy efficiency in processing, distribution, conservation and preparation of food” (IA).
The SME currently participates in 6 projects under Horizon 2020 programme projects and 2 under Life programme, in addition to other R&D&I projects founded at national and regional level. Furthermore, The SME has been awarded as an Innovative SME by the Ministry of Economy, Industry and Competitiveness of the Spanish Government thanks to its high participation in international R&D programmes.
The SME collaborates with a partner that could be an end-user in logistic, distribution and conservation of food. This partner is a large Spanish company which has more than 55 year of experience in international refrigerated road transport and has a 2.500 heavy-duty long-haul truck fleet that operates throughout Europe combined with intermodal transport. Germany, United Kingdom and France are the most common destination, and citric fruits, tomato, peppers and berries the most exported products. In its headquarters there is a 15,000 m2 temperature-controlled crossdocking warehouse, with 106 loading and unloading docks. On top of that, this end user could provide experience and knowledge to the consortium regarding to logistic and transport sector, traffic and fleet management and ecological transition.
