Lighting the way for energy and carbon management

CASE STUDY: SIMBLE AND SYLVANIA

As lighting for commercial and industrial sites moves from being a commodity to a service, leading international provider Sylvania Lighting wanted to provide its customers with an energy and Internet of Things (IoT) analytics platform.

Sylvania turned to Australian-listed smart energy Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) company Simble Solutions Limited (ASX:SIS), which has been a Wattwatchers third-party software partner for nearly a decade.

SimbleSense now powers Sylvania’s own-branded SylSmart Energy, described as ‘an advanced energy monitoring and analytics platform that empowers businesses to take action regarding their carbon emissions and energy consumption’.

Features of the SylSmart Energy solution highlighted by Sylvania include:

  • Centralised energy insights – All energy sources on one platform
  • Easy monitoring and in-depth analytics – Monitor your progress and ensure the strategies you employ are effective
