Our vision: to create a more efficient and sustainable industry 4.0
Industry still generates 20% of the world’s CO2 emissions, largely due to factories’ energy usage. For industry, it is no longer a simple option to generate energy savings but a requirement. However, it remains a significant challenge, as it is getting harder to undertake successful energy efficiency projects that promise an acceptable ROI.
Data is already being widely collected within factories, but there is still a lot of underused potential. This is why we created Energiency: we wanted to roll out artificial intelligence in a highly operational, accessible way, to help Operators and Energy Managers save energy and reduce their CO2 emissions on a daily basis.
Our work in key figures
At Energiency, we can also share with you the excellent historical data we have collected since day one.
innovation awards, including the Solar Impulse label
industrial data points have been integrated into our software
energy optimisation projects supported across 2 continents and 6 countries
A deep understanding of industry, energy, and data science is woven into our DNA. Explore our team’s story since 2013 and, together, we will write industry’s future by putting energy efficiency and digitisation at the heart of your day-to-day work.
Energiency was founded in Rennes, France, by Engineers Arnaud Legrand and Thierry d’Allancé: And so the adventure began!
Solution development: Our first Data Scientists and Developers worked hand in hand to make an innovative app that seeks out new potential sources for energy savings.
Energiency’s solution was launched: Version 1.0 won over early adopters including ArcelorMittal Belval and Norske Skog.
A partnership was signed between R&D and INRIA: This alliance with France’s first artificial intelligence lab enabled us to embed AI models into the app.
Capital was raised to launch the business: €2.7 million of funding was supplied by ISAI, Go Capital, and West Web Valley.
The ATL-EN-TIC joint venture was founded by Energiency, Akajoule, Enerdigit, Entech, and NKE Watteco to accelerate industrial manufacturers’ production of energy intelligence.
Energiency secured the “Solar Impulse Efficient Solution” label and won the Industrie 4.0 and Paris Air Forum awards.
€4.5 million were raised in a second injection of capital: Funds were supplied by the Encevo Group and the investment funds ISAI, Go Capital, West Web Valley, InnoEnergy, and 50 Partners. 18 new employees were recruited and work began to develop Energiency in Germany.
Three products – Enlight, Enpower, and Enforce – were launched. Each one is designed to suit the energy progress already made by individual customers. A partnership was formed with EPSA (providing consultancy about operational performance and financing for strategic investment).
Now and in the future, we want to keep helping to make industry more sustainable and carbon neutral by 2050 by transforming energy efficiency into a central concern of industry.
