Launch of a call for projects on data by AWS and ENGIE

Other innovations

During the Viva Technology show, ENGIE and AWS (Amazon Web Services) are calling on the startup ecosystem to develop a solution for collecting and analyzing public data on companies.

As part of its "Zero Carbon Transition" strategy, which is particularly focused on advising and supporting its corporate customers  by offering them advice and support in their search for energy efficiency solutions and decarbonisation of their energy sources, ENGIE has set up a hub for data on AWS. This hub gathers ENGIE's financial, commercial and technical data on its business customers, this data available internally or provided by the customers themselves.

ENGIE is now looking for a solution to complete this hub with public data available on websites and social networks. These data will enrich its database by improving its 360-degree vision of its customers and let ENGIE offer them tailor-made solutions covering the optimization of their energy consumption, the installation of means of green energy production, the development of energy storage or management of the energy performance of their buildings ...

The scope includes large companies and global corporations. It covers the entire organizational and legal structure of these companies (subsidiaries, etc.) and anywhere in the world.

The winner (s) of this call for projects will benefit from:

  • Support from the ENGIE experts to develop a pilot. In the long term, it will be a question of integrating the solution into the Group's data platform.
  • Support AWS project (s) for 2 years through its AWS Activate program, including AWS credits
  • Supporting technical experts and access to training to help them succeed and accelerate their activities using the cloud.

Start-ups can submit their file until July 31, 2019
