BeeBryte was founded in 2015 by two serial entrepreneurs, Frédéric Crampé and Patrick Leguillette.
The energytech start-up is headquartered in France with a regional office in Singapore charged with growing its footprint in Asia.
The focus is on markets where the company can make the biggest difference to energy bills – usually hot climates where electricity is relatively expensive.
Electricity prices in the Philippines, for example, are 50% to 70% higher than Singapore.
BeeBryte has also modified its offering for developing countries, where old or poorly maintained building management systems may be incompatible with its software.
In these cases, BeeBryte is bundling a basic building management system with its software, to retrofit buildings where the existing operation isn’t working as it should, or where there is no automated system at all.
BeeBryte was shortlisted in the ‘Artificial intelligence for energy demand management’ category for the ADB’s Energy Sector Technology Innovation Challenge.
