Fledgling entrepreneurial firm GridManager, which offers energy-saving solutions to companies, has entered a cleantech* partnership with IBM, reports Erhrevsbladet (The Business Paper). The aim of the partnership is to help companies cut their electricity consumption and thus reduce their CO2 emissions.
 
Anders Quitzau, head of innovation at IBM says: "There are some obvious business opportunities and environmental potentials. Popularly speaking, we and GridManager are working in the same field, but on opposite sides of the mains plug. Together with supply companies, including DONG Energy, IBM develops intelligent networks to ensure the most optimal use of resources in the entire electricity supply. GridManager takes the last step and implements the solutions to end-users."
 
Mogens Birkelund, the owner and founder of GridManager says the partnership will give the firm a technological lift. "IBM will give us access to their tools and technological platform so that we gain greater reliability around our solutions and the necessary resizing, which we can use for more and especially larger customers."
 
* Cleantech is a term used to describe knowledge-based products and services designed to maximise energy resource efficiency while minimising waste and pollution. The development and growth of the cleantech sector has undoubtedly been spurred by mounting awareness of global warming and the impact on the environment of burning fossil fuels.
