A Mexican company has developed 'Energy-Management-as-a-Service' to help clients decarbonise and save money
Spotted: The Mexican government has been criticised for promoting legislation that would limit competition and investment in renewable energy. However, cities and private companies have continued developing clean energy solutions at pace – spurred on by public demand and a desire for cheaper and more efficient energy.
One of the Mexican companies helping in this transition is S2G Energy, which provides Energy-Management-as-a-Service (EMaaS) technology. S2G was originally founded to develop opportunities for distributed solar technology due to government energy reform. However, the company also saw an urgent need for businesses to gain a better understanding of how they were using their energy.
To address this, S2G developed a digital solution that helps organisations better manage their energy use in order to generate savings and efficiencies. The company’s platform and sensors can centralise data and provide visualisation for energy and water consumption at both portfolio and site levels to aid in operational control and decision-making. It can also help organisations plan operational changes and equipment retrofits to improve efficiency.
In addition, S2G provides solutions that allow companies to integrate solar generation and storage systems on-site without any initial investment – and to handle supply, management, and control of charging stations. The company also provides intelligence for the transition of fleets, electrical infrastructure, and environmental, social, and governance (ESG) reporting. Former and current customers and partners include large companies such as Walmart, Bacardi, and Mondelez.
The direction of travel is now moving firmly towards greener energy, as companies and individuals realise the cost savings that can be made. Innovations spotted in the Springwise database designed to help this transition include on-site renewable energy and using satellites to track risk.
