Partnering opportunity

UK developer of real-time energy saving mapping system seeks H2020 collaborators


The UK SME has developed a real-time energy mapping system, which combines data collection utilities, back-office database design and implementation, and web-server interface programmes. These combine to provide web-pages with a visual front end to systems dedicated to energy-saving solutions. The company offers its expertise to join consortia for new H2020 bids and to reutilize the product from earlier H2020 projects for new bids/EU projects.

Partner sought

The company is looking for either a research partner or an industry partner with a strong research ethos with a desire to join project consortia for a Horizon 2020 project. The partner should be looking to support the energy sector with IT solutions and would be expected to be involved in deploying energy solutions.


The company is a research-led SME developing system solutions for information acquisition, processing, and delivery. It specializes in human-centric applications including decision support, data mining, and information services. Already successful in the traffic, transport and environmental sectors, the company is seeking collaborators to work with, applying their knowledge to the energy sector. By developing a real-time energy mapping system, this would contribute to the reduction in domestic and industrial energy costs by making users aware of their energy consumption and cost as it is being used. The systems that it develops enhance the value of existing information sources and the current and future communications technology. The spectrum of systems ranges from information systems for the general public, to specialized information management tools offering several levels of information generalization which are required to support decision-making processes in complex systems and in the presence of uncertainty. The company draws on over twenty years of experience of its staff with real-time monitoring and control systems and it has an established track record of successful implementation of information systems developed around the latest communications technologies. The aim is to engage potential customers and make them aware of the energy spend of their dwelling in real-time. It comprises data collection utilities, back-office database design and implementation, and web-server interface programs. These all combine to give web-pages with a visual front end. The innovative aspect of the proposal lies in system integration. Potential markets are all systems where measurement of the energy consumption can be taken. The company is also offering full services ICT expertise from front end to back end server hosting and software development. This company have participated in previous H2020 projects and are now looking to join consortia for new relevant H2020 bids and offer their technology and expertise.

Advantages and innovations

The advantage of the mapping system solution is the potential for immediate savings in energy usage, which can be applied to domestic, business and industrial users. Innovation comes from the integration of the individual IT elements into one comprehensive unit. To date, only the individual components have been made available to users. The offer is for integrating the energy map web interface into the ICT systems of the users. The advantages of the solution are in the packaging of all IT services in one system integration.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
