The idea behind Smart Energi is simple: by sharing costs and knowledge, you can achieve more and help drive faster and more efficient digital development in the energy industry. Smart Energi and Solita have jointly created new data and AI-based services that accelerate digitalisation through smart data analysis.
Smart Energi is a collaborative organisation for digital development in the energy sector. Today it has 10 member companies, including E.ON, Göteborg Energi, Tekniska Verken in Linköping and Sundsvall Energi. Solita coordinates the collaboration and leads specific development work.
“It started with an algorithm, which became an application, which then became an industry initiative, which gave rise to an innovation project with the support of the Swedish Energy Agency, Energiforsk, and researchers from academia. We develop methods and frameworks, and support companies in their use and operational development. And next year, an industry association will be launched”, says Anders Tholen, SVP Design & Strategy at Solita, and one of the driving forces behind Smart Energi.
