What We Do
We create Smart buildings for Smart people™
We're on a mission to transform the way energy is bought, delivered and consumed in student accommodation and make it Smarter, Greener and Healthier.
To do this we improve the energy efficiency to deliver key non-energy benefits which provide more strategic outcomes to the owners and operators of student accommodation.
Energy efficiency in this context is the integration of utility procurement with retrofitting of the accommodation.
The main non-energy benefits delivered are:
Freezing the largest element of Op Ex for a period of time thus enhancing the Net Operating Income.
Proving an increase in the value of the property asset.
Our solution is to deliver energy efficiency in the form of a managed service and we call this innovation, Smart Energy Efficiency™ or SEE™.
What is Smart Energy Efficiency™ ?
Energy Efficiency as a managed service.
Mission: Student Housing + Smart + Green + Healthy
Smart Energy Efficiency™ is a managed service designed to enable board rooms to achieve their strategic goals of operational cost management and asset value growth.
SEE™ uses AI, smart algorithms and bankable technology to absorb the complexities related to energy in student accommodation and deliver a simple managed solution on a fixed fee basis. A solution which has the added benefits of making the buildings Smart, Green and Healthy.
SMART - We stabilise and optimise the operational costs related to utilities, providing budget certainty on the largest element of Op Ex and proving a value increase on the building asset.
GREEN - We match energy use to student behaviour to significantly increase the energy efficiency of student accommodation and reduce the carbon footprint.
HEALTHY - Our solution helps to create healthier and more comfortable environments for the students as we believe that better comfort conditions in the accommodation = better student outcomes.
