Solar Quest - An electric space heater with an integrated battery.
Solar Quest is an efficient heating technology and energy management system. This heater fine tunes to users’ needs while its battery charges off peak or with renewable energy surplus and discharges to prevent it from consuming power during peak hours. Solar Quest’s purpose is to develop the V2 of heater, able to reinject power stored in the battery into buildings’ grid to power other devices. Solar Quest features are heating, storing and its embedded intelligence. With its infrared radiant panel provide an instantaneous warmth feeling while ensuring a stable temperature and optimal comfort. Finally, the device learns from consumer's habits to optimize power consumption without reducing comfort.
PowerCorner offers reliable, sustainable and affordable energy services through off-grid mini-grids serving rural customers in developing countries. PowerCorner is an internal start-up within the ENGIE Group with a long-term service commitment towards its customers. The primary focus of PowerCorner is to support income-generating activities, thereby sustainably improving the living conditions of its customers.
Solar Community is a solar power plant whose electricity is shared by several users, thus enabling more people to access affordable solar power. Customers can hire a solar power "share", so they can switch over to solar power without needing a special roof… or any kind of roof at all. This makes it an option for people who rent the property in which they live or work.
District cooling systems: Since 1991, ENGIE has been developing and operating one of the largest district cooling systems in the world – CLIMESPACE in Paris. Spread over ten production sites, all of which are powered exclusively using renewable electricity, the system generates cooled water which it supplies to more than 600 clients (hotels, offices, retailers, etc.) – via a 73-km long underground network. District Cooling Systems generate an equivalent cooling effect and can reduce water and electricity consumption by up to 65% compared with stand-alone plants.
Vertuoz Pilot optimises energy consumption, creating a balance between occupants' comfort and energy savings. It is made up of connected objects installed on site which send measurements read remotely over the Internet to an artificial intelligence algorithm. This algorithm then simultaneously factors in site conditions, consumption targets and various other constraints which can be configured. It then sends a list of actions and orders to actuators installed on site which control heating, lighting and other data on which they are required to perform operations.
Livin’: Designed to meet the needs of urban infrastructure managers, Livin’ is an urban data management platform for monitoring, managing, viewing and creating value from data from connected infrastructure. Livin’ software goes beyond data aggregation to improve efficiency in urban environments and to help engage with citizens.
Heliatek: Converting the sun’s rays into electricity means being able to meet the energy needs of the world’s population from an infinite primary resource: with photovoltaic solar, there is no risk of depleting the world’s reserves. And using the organic solar films developed by start-up Heliatek, flexible, thin and recyclable, everyone can produce their own green electricity.
DERMS Mobile Storage: Modular, flexible and patented battery solution. This battery fits into a container that can be moved around to meet temporary energy needs – for an event, during electricity consumption peaks or on a construction site.
BOXX: tracking and interacting with utilities consumption, at your fingertips wherever you may be. This touchscreen and its mobile app make a powerful tool for tracking electricity, natural gas and water consumption in real time. Users receive alerts and can take advantage of proactive, customisable and actionable services giving them control of their consumption at all times, together with a smart thermostat for keeping their home comfortable and efficient.
