Pangea has entered into a full distribution agreement with smart building business Buddy Platform.
"With the world in the midst of an energy crisis, and UK businesses faced with strict government sustainability regulations such as ESOS, Pangea is deepening its partnership with Buddy in order to put companies in control of their energy spend and building vitals," said Pangea’s MD Dan Cunliffe.
"Through the agreement, Pangea will be able to do far more with the product, have better deployment surveying abilities, increased installation capabilities and an enhanced troubleshooting process."
According to Cunliffe, despite raised awareness and green initiatives, resource wastage remains a problem - 30% of all energy used in UK commercial buildings is wasted entirely.
"This is one of many hurdles that businesses will need to clear in order to meet the UK government’s new legal sustainability standards; and with the December 5th deadline looming, it’s crunch time for large companies," added Cunliffe.
Pangea is aiming to fix energy wastage in businesses with its Fitbit for Buildings.
By compiling water and electricity consumption, temperature, humidity and more on a per building, floor, desk or device basis, businesses can reign in areas of overuse, set goals, detect anomalies and solve problems before they even crop up.
“Our initial market testing and early sales over the past year have proven the value of the Buddy Ohm solution for industrial and commercial customers," said Cunliffe.
"Coupled with the recent developments in ESOS legislation, we’ve seen our partners’ interest in energy usage and sustainability measurement grow significantly, both in the boardroom and operationally across all business types.
“Energy monitoring, and more importantly driving actions using IoT capabilities, is no longer optional - it’s mandatory for all medium to large businesses in the UK.”
