Develop Knowledge That Drives Progress

Energy & Buildings

The energy transition requires major innovation. Not only for the production of sustainable energy, but also in the usage of these sustainable resourses. With our Park the Sun application, we support divers organisations in the realisation of solar carports. What would the optimal location be? What can the PV yield at different locations and is the local energy network suitable? Furthermore, we've created the artifical thermographer. Using our patented deep learning algorithm, we are able to generate individual insulation reports for an unlimited number of thermographic images / houses. This creates awareness among citizens - crucial to realize an effective energy transition.

Deeper AI

Artificial Intelligence, or AI, allows for computers to do the work of several human brains in fraction of the time. At Sobolt, we use AI concepts like pattern recognition to develop smarter solutions for sustainability problems. As a result, out technology contributes to autonomous decision-making, giving companies, municipalities and individuals the ability to make well-informed choices about the future.

Improved planning

The renewable energy transition requires a new kind of thinking. With more localized energy production, the traditional ideas of distributing energy are no longer applicable. However, the times that we need the energy the most don't necessarily coincide with the peaks in energy production. The sun only shines during the day and the wind doesn't blow continuously. Additionally, there is an inevitable need for storage capacity. The solution to these issues lies in self-learning and data-driven applications, unifying all components of the energy grid.

Smart Green Cities

Currently, 50% of the world's population lives in cities and is predicted to reach 80% by 2050. To support living conditions for a growing population, cities will have to adopt new technological solutions. These solutions must increase the energy efficiency of buildings, improve air quality, reduce pollution and make the city a better place to live altogether. In order for these cost-effective solutions to take place, local governments will have to engage in partnerships. We provide best in class eco-reports, urban green planning and climate adaptation insights.

Optimal yields

The adoption of solar energy is booming. Over the next 5 years, 70,000 solar panels will be installed every hour. That translates to an impressive 1,000 soccer pitches of solar panels being installed every day. These solar installations range from a handful of panels on your own roof to thousands of panels in utility-scale solar farms. However, there are still many challenges to be faced on both levels, including growth rates, grid balancing and yield optimization.

Environmental Impact

The goal of investing in a greener energy system is to realize a better future for our children. We are well-aware that this is currently far from certain. Even if worldwide climate agreements are kept, the chance that global warming is inevitable is unrealistic. Increasing awareness is one of the most important tasks of the renewable energy community because many remain unaware of the consequences. Although the next generation will have to do a large fraction of the work, it is imperative that we begin this movement now.
