Coleshill, UK, 11th March 2019

Energeo have secured funding to develop a geospatially driven, Software as a Service (SaaS) based Energy Project Identification Platform. The platform will help stakeholders and developers determine the most appropriate renewable energy technology mix to meet climate change mitigation targets and understand the impact on our electricity infrastructure. The funding, from DataPitch, is part of a 6-month accelerator programme that will run to September 2019.

“This funding award will enable Energeo to build on our existing web based software solutions and create a truly valuable tool to help stakeholders reduce emissions, save energy and money, mitigate fuel poverty, build property retrofit programmes, and more” commented Energeo CEO, Ian Dee. “It also gives us the opportunity to add further skills in Software Development and GIS/Remote Sensing to the team, which we’ll be announcing in the next few weeks. In addition, this award shows yet again that our innovative approach to problem solving using geospatial data and technology is creating real world value”.

The project will also see Energeo further automate their data interrogation work-flows, and integrate near-real time data feeds from OpenLV. Energeo will work with Local Authority end-users to test the platform in a real world environment across a variety of regions through the UK. If you’d like to know more about the project, or are a Local Authority who would be interested in testing the platform, please contact Energeo on info@energeo.co.uk

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement number 732506

Coleshill, UK, 4th February 2019

Energeo’s recent Electric Vehicle project in Bournemouth is the subject of a new UK Space Agency case study, which you can read here. The project, which leveraged the power of satellite imagery and machine learning to support Bournemouth Borough Council’s EV charging infrastructure implementation plans, was part of the UK Space Agency’s ‘Space for Smarter Government Programme’ (SSGP).

During the project Energeo successfully identified and measured features and assets across Bournemouth’s entire administrative area that influence on-street charge point implementation, including pavement and road geometries, street light column positioning, parking constraints and congestion, and private parking availability.

An Energeo case study on the work is also available - please email info@energeo.co.uk for a copy.

Coleshill, UK, 4th February 2019

Energeo CEO, Ian Dee, last week presented at the UK Space Agency’s Space Applications Networking Event (#SANE19) at St Mary’s Church in London. The event brought together organisations involved in the UK Space Agency’s Space for Smarter Government and International Partnership programmes to discuss applications for satellite intelligence with the wider space community, including data providers, academics, Government bodies, and potential customers.

Ian presented on Energeo’s recent work in Bournemouth, where very high resolution satellite imagery has been utilised, alongside machine learning analytical techniques, to automatically identify and measure features and assets associated with the implementation of electric vehicle charging infrastructure, such as pavement and road geometries, streetlight column positioning, parking constraints and congestion, and private driveway availability.

Energeo also exhibited at the event, and would like to extend our thanks to UK Space Agency for organising a fantastic conference, and to those who took the time to listen to Ian’s presentation or stop by the Energeo booth for a chat.

Energeo CEO's Review of 2018 and Look Ahead to 2019

Energeo CEO, Ian Dee

Energeo CEO, Ian Dee

Coleshill, UK, 21st January 2019

Happy New Year!

Firstly, thank you to everyone who contributed to Energeo’s success in 2018. Be that as a colleague, partner or client, it is very much appreciated, and you have helped drive the business forward greatly over the last 12 months.

2018 was transformational . . .

2018 was a year of growth for Energeo in many ways. Our order intake grew significantly against 2017, we added to our Business Development team, and we have expanded our portfolio of sustainability focused products and services to include intelligence that supports Electric Vehicle (EV) infrastructure deployment and Low Voltage network management. Our reputation as a geospatial innovator continues to grow, which in-turn ensures our credibility and that interest in the solutions we offer grows too.

Our EV focused work has been a catalyst for much of this growth. The service started 2018 as one idea amongst many others discussed with Bournemouth Borough Council but, with support and funding from the UK Space Agency’s ‘Space for Smarter Government’ programme, continued end user support and direction from Bournemouth, and a fantastically innovative approach from the team, blossomed into something I’m not sure anyone involved truly anticipated!

Then UK Science Minister, Sam Gyimah, described the project as “demonstrating the potential of satellite technology to benefit life on earth with innovative solutions”, whilst intelligence specialists Compelo named the work as one of ‘5 key projects readying Britain for take-off’ in the International Space Sector.

The Energeo team attended and exhibited at several events throughout 2018. These included exhibiting at 3PPP’s fantastic ‘Low Carbon Scotland’ and ‘Low Carbon Britain’ shows, and Climate Change Solution’s brilliant ‘Making Places Last’ conference – our 3rd year running at each of these events. We also attended the Cenex ‘Low Carbon Vehicle’ conference, and ‘Fleet Live’. The potential partners, suppliers and customers we met at these events will be critical to continued growth in 2019.

In addition to the EV work, we also worked alongside SmartKlub and the Satellite Applications Catapult on a project – Easy Energy Engager - to assess the feasibility of creating on online brokering system for renewable energy technology, supported one of the UK’s largest housing associations retrofit programme by delivering solar PV and building heat loss intelligence, assessed the rooftop solar potential of over 250,000 buildings across Bournemouth, Barnsley, Newcastle, North Wales and the Scottish Borders, and added locational intelligence to over 60,000 Energy Performance Certificates to allow them to be easily visualised and interrogated.

What’s in store in 2019?

2019 has started very much as 2018 ended – busily! This year we’ll be continuing to develop our EV offering to support point-of-destination infrastructure implementation and grid impact analysis of charging infrastructure installation, amongst other things. Our clients also continue to come up with myriad new uses for the EV data, including facilitation of cycle and bus lane planning and streetlight upgrade programmes. Additionally, we can now deliver the data via a Software as a Service platform, which removes end user need to host and manage data, and provides an intuitive toolkit for data visualisation, contextualisation and interrogation.

We’re hoping to announce significant news on upcoming projects later in Q1, projects which span Public and Private sector and feature delivery of products and services from every part of our portfolio. Also, please keep an eye out for an update soon regarding further expansion to the Energeo team – something everyone involved is extremely excited about!

We’ll again be exhibiting at Low Carbon Scotland, Low Carbon Britain, and Making Places Last, and will also be part of the marketplace at this years Business Energy Efficiency/Low Carbon Opportunity event. In addition, we’re hoping to have a presence at this years Cenex LCV conference, and we’ll also be part of the UK Space Applications event in London this month. We’re really looking forward to meeting old friends, and making many new ones, throughout the year.

On a personal note, 2019 has started with the surprise news that NewSpace People have named me in their 2018/19 Global Ranking of the Top 200 movers and shakers in the space industry – a massive, albeit pleasant, surprise, and I’m honoured to be considered part of such a fantastic group of space innovators. This is a team effort, and this news reflects the hard work of the entire Energeo family.

Once again I’d like to extend my gratitude to the Energeo team, and all our partners, suppliers and customers, for making 2018 so special, and for making 2019 an even more exciting prospect!

Thank you for being part of Energeo’s journey, we look forward to growing with you in 2019.
