The main objective of the Power2SME project is to provide SMEs with an advanced energy services platform. This platform offers access to integrated data that allows SMEs to manage and improve energy consumption, reduce their costs, making them more ecological and sustainable.
provides new value-added services in energy efficiency, through an attractive, user-friendly and interactive interface that increases the level of awareness of any user in relation to energy consumption.
In addition, the project has developed a tool that allows analyzing consumer behavior, providing different consumption profiles, which could be used as guides and which offer recommendations to the user of the application, such as how and when to carry out certain actions to adapt the consumption of any company to its needs.
