IMPACT CASE STUDY:

Energeo: Working with the Catapult

“The unique, satellite technology derived insights we delivered on a project working with the Catapult, will allow detailed assessment of the potential for generating renewable and sustainable energy on or near-site, supporting the mitigation of the wider environmental impacts of mining” – Ian Dee, CEO, Energeo

Impact

  • Commercial contracts secured with Smart Klub, National Grid, Community Works CIC, and Bournemouth Borough Council
  • Increased number of employees from 3 to 5.
  • Expanding activities in Scotland after a successful contract in Inverness, and now in negotiation with a consortium of Glasgow Local Authorities
  • Awarded £9k as a partner in in a project delivered with Catapult in Chile.
  • Graduated from ESA Business Incubation Centre, and secured further funding from Innovate UK and UK Space Agency

How has the Catapult helped?

Opened export opportunities: Energeo were selected by the by the Catapult to provide sustainable and renewable energy intelligence to support environmental impact mitigation in the Chilean mining sector, for a project funded by the Newton Programme. The Catapult is using this demonstrator to showcase the capability and versatility of Earth Observation satellite technology in supporting day-to-day mining operations.

Increased UK visibility: Energeo were chosen to provide sustainable and renewable energy intelligence – including residential solar and heat pump potential – to the Community Action Platform for Energy (CAPE) programme in Milton Keynes. The CAPE platform – led by Smart Klub – was deployed in Milton Keynes in 2017 with further cities due to roll out in 2018.

Provided access to collaborators: Energeo is exploring collaborative opportunities with several organisations as a result of introductions via the Catapult. These include wind power applications, electric vehicle roll out solutions, microgeneration impact on grid infrastructure services, and air quality mapping and monitoring products.

“Energeo’s innovative use of geospatial Big Data, Open Data, and Machine Learning techniques is streamlining and simplifying the way we understand energy in complex urban environments. City-scale analysis can be undertaken more intelligently and efficiently than ever before.”
