Berlin, Germany - Lumenaza, the software company powering the green distributed energy world, has been recognized as one of the fastest-growing European companies in the Financial Times' FT 1000 list.
Now in its fourth year, the FT 1000, published by the Financial Times in partnership with Statista, ranks the European companies that have achieved the strongest revenue growth between 2015 and 2018.
Lumenaza ranked number 78 in the 2020 report, positioning it as one of the top fastest-growing energy companies on the list, accomplishing a revenue growth of 157 % per year on average.
Lumenaza's comprehensive software platform plays a central role in the growth and development of green energies and their integration into the grid across Europe. The company's software connects producers and consumers of green distributed energy, proving the clear origin of the electricity while removing entry barriers to the energy market. Lumenaza's collaborative approach to the energy market has already attracted major utilities around Europe such as E.ON and EnBW as well as new players such as a leading HEMS supplier.
Dr Christian Chudoba, founder and CEO of Lumenaza, commented: "We are deeply proud to be featured in the Top 100 fastest-growing energy companies in Europe by the Financial Times. To be ranked so high and feature alongside such highly respected companies is a testament to the positive impact our technology is having on the energy industry."
Berlin/Munich: Lumenaza, the software company powering the green distributed energy world, and GreenCom Networks, Europe's leading Home Energy Management (HEM) company, work together to bring energy communities to German customers. Lumenaza enables GreenCom Networks to deliver green energy to consumers and prosumers directly.
The first joint project is the energy community in Brunnthal, which shine, a brand of GreenCom Networks, recently launched. Members of the community benefit from synchronising their generation and consumption. Moreover, community members will receive a cash bonus for each kilowatt-hour used in balancing the community's electricity supply and demand.
Lumenaza's comprehensive software platform enables complex and concise billing schemes based on the actual consumption compared to traditional down payments. By offering energy market roles as a service, Lumenaza ensures GreenCom Networks meets its regulatory and compliance obligations and significantly shortens the time-to-market while balancing demand and supply. GreenCom Networks' powerful IoT solution connects and optimises the usage of energy-relevant devices, processes real-time data, calculates bonuses and provides granular billing determinants. Together, Lumenaza and GreenCom Networks offer an easy-to-use value proposition to potential community members.
Berlin. E.ON together with Lumenaza have created a local energy system in Simris, a small village located in southern Sweden, fully based on renewable energy. The energy for the approximately 140 households mainly comes from a wind turbine and photovoltaic panels, supported by a battery system. Residents of the village are not only consumers of energy, but they also produce their own energy through a combination of photovoltaic and battery systems. Furthermore, heat pumps and other steerable load assets are integrated into the village's energy system.
Residents of Simris can now in real-time check their individual as well as the accumulated energy consumption and compare it to the local energy generation. Moreover, they can participate in the demand response program and receive an immediate visual feedback on how much energy was contributed and their individual financial compensation for the offered flexibility. To realize the visualization of the energy flows for the residents, Lumenaza's utility-in-box solution for distributed energy resources is used.
"We are in the middle of tremendous changes in the energy sector. In the future, the generation of energy and its consumption will be renewable, decentral and local. Simris is a perfect example of how to realize the energy transition on the local level and how to reach a high-degree of self-sufficiency. We are happy to help with our software to drive this change," comments Christian Chudoba, founder and CEO of Lumenaza.
