Sparkfund and GridPoint announced today that they have partnered with Shell in the launch of a new offering, Shell Energy Inside, which is a subscription approach to smart buildings and pairs technologies such as HVAC, lighting, energy storage, electric vehicle charging, and building controls together with retail power supply and demand response.
The offering is available to all commercial, industrial and municipal customers in North America.
The bundled solution is powered by Sparkfund’s subscription engine, SparkOS, along with GridPoint Energy Manager, GridPoint’s controls and analytics platform.
Shell Energy Inside is part of Shell New Energies, Shell’s division that provides low carbon solutions to meet the world’s evolving energy needs.
Shell established its New Energies division in 2016 and plans to invest on average $1 – 2 billion a year until 2020 in commercial investments that build on the company’s strengths in new and fast-growing segments of the energy industry. Shell New Energies focuses on two main areas: new fuels for transport, such as advanced biofuels and hydrogen; and power, being involved at almost every stage of the process, from generating electricity, to buying and selling it, to supplying it directly to customers.
Sparkfund gives customers access to essential building energy functions -- like cold air, light and resilience to storms -- without the constraints of ownership. Sparkfund partners with major energy providers to deliver the Sparkfund Technology subscription
GridPoint is a smart buildings technology provider whose platform provides visibility into facility operations to help customers automate and control sites, lower energy spend and proactively manage day-to-day operations.
