Purpose of the call for projects
ENGIE is seeking disruptive technologies that will be essential to the homes and buildings of tomorrow.
ENGIE is actively trying to identify, assess, and test some ground breaking technologies coming from the Israeli startup ecosystem. These disruptive projects will contribute to executing ENGIE’s vision of SMART Buildings. Technologies used in these fields are changing very quickly: Internet of Things, energy-positive buildings, big data as a way of offering services to a building’s occupants, artificial intelligence for simulating how people use energy, etc. Buildings are also being turned into “virtual” environments, like many other physical spaces. Building Information Modeling (BIM) provides a digital view of every aspect of a building, which makes technical management easier.
ENGIE is actively looking for such innovative solutions which will either disrupt the existing energy and services markets or create additional value for our B2B customers.
Deadline for answering: June 5th at midnight
