The Digital Foundation To Modernize Energy

Awesense began in 2009 with a simple sensor to gather data from blind spots in the distribution grid and a mission to decarbonize the world. Since then, we have developed a powerful data middleware platform that serves as the digital foundation for decentralizing and decarbonizing the electricity grid. We know that processing energy data is the first step in expediting digitalization on the path to energy modernization.

To Decarbonize Energy

We have developed a platform that serves as the digital foundation to address the data gap in the industry. Our platform provides a data model-driven digital twin with the freedom to build anything on top.

Utilities only leverage 2-4% of their grid data yearly, while the amount of data triples every two years.

Our AI Data Engine standardizes utility data resulting in a populated data model accessible via APIs in our Energy Transition Platform. The data is thus usable by the applications needed to push for digital transformation. The open Energy Data Model is the digital foundation, while our Energy Transition Platform is the set of tools required for utilities to integrate renewables, analyze, optimize, and prepare for a decarbonized future.

Our Vision

To accelerate the energy transition by making it easy to build data-driven applications.

We provide the data middleware for companies to accelerate data integration and cleansing, allowing for better asset visualization and optimization of operating systems such as ADMS, OMS, and DERMS. We also facilitate the development of use cases, enterprise applications, building applications, and energy data solutions.

Our Philosophy

Your development is your IP, not ours.

Awesense operates with an open philosophy to support application development. With Awesense, our clients are never locked into a vertically integrated solution.

Use any BI tool. Use any data science notebook.

When engaging with the Awesense tools, clients can change their dashboard tools, use, upgrade, and further develop their own software applications.

Develop in the coding language of your choice.

We continuously strive to innovate and are open to new ideas and tools. We aim to drive innovation through collaboration, making it faster and easier to adapt to an ever-changing business climate.
