Bidgely is today being recognized for pioneering AI disaggregation solutions for utilities with a 2018 New Energy Pioneer Award from Bloomberg New Energy Finance. The company's strong global traction with more than 25 utilities in 12 countries and its innovation around the highly scalable Bidgely Platform will be honored at the Bloomberg Future of Energy Summit, held in New York City.
Bidgely co-founder and CEO Abhay Gupta will be accepting the award on behalf of the company at the Summit this evening. He commented, "Bidgely applies Artificial Intelligence to help utilities personalize the energy experience for consumers around the world. We celebrate becoming a Bloomberg New Energy Pioneer, an honor which recognizes our ability to solve real-world utility business challenges like digital transformation and a rapidly evolving energy landscape."
An independent panel of industry experts, assisted by BNEF's analysts and technology specialists, selected the ten winners from more than 160 applicants from close to 50 countries around the world. Each candidate was assessed against three criteria: technology or business model innovation, and what novelty it brought to the market; evidence of substantive progress in the form of strong commercial partnerships, the distribution channels in place and sales growth; and the potential to scale and have a global impact.
Bidgely stood out from the applicant pool for how the company has responded to changes and disruption in the energy system - bringing machine learning and data analytics to utility meter data to reveal hidden insights that benefit both utilities and consumers. For example, Bidgely recently announced a partnership with large investor owned utility NV Energy to bring personalized energy-saving recommendations and reinvent its home assessment offering for its customers.
