SMAP Energy provides a Smart Meter Analytics Platform for utilities to transform smart meter data into applications to help business customers increase their operational efficiency.

Grid Edge has developed a cloud-based Artificial Intelligence software that works with commercial building energy management systems to predict, optimise and control complex energy systems.  

The Blue Lab Innovation Challenge gives startups a chance to work with EDF Energy to find and develop the best new innovations for customers. EDF Energy has selected the ideas it thinks could make the greatest difference to customers and have invited the startups behind them to join a 12-week acceleration programme.

At the end of the programme, all of the short-listed innovations have the opportunity for future commercial relationships,  joint working, or investment, while one finalist will be selected for a cash prize.
