Two renewable energy projects are among the first 10 start-ups to join TotalEnergies On - the accelerator programme dedicated to electricity.
Sereema provides digital wind asset optimisation operated through a proprietary Internet of Things system. Green Eagle Solutions automates remote wind operations with software robots.
TotalEnergies' start-up accelerator is based at the world’s largest start-up campus, STATION F in Paris. It intends to support the development of new companies in the electricity and renewable energy sector.
This programme is aimed at start-ups offering innovative solutions, particularly digital ones, across the electricity value chain. The selected start-ups benefit from privileged access to the Company's experts, a testing ground for their developments within TotalEnergies’ businesses.
They also benefit from the STATION F ecosystem, thanks to their hosting at TotalEnergies On.
TotalEnergies chairman and chief executive Patrick Pouyanné said: "I want to extend a warm welcome to the 10 start-ups who will open our TotalEnergies ON electricity start-up accelerator program here at STATION F, a key venue for the start-up ecosystem, and I would like to thank Xavier Niel for hosting us.
"The energy transition brings many new challenges, particularly with the massive deployment of renewable energies and the complex issue of integrating them into the electrical system.
"As a global multi-energy company that places the development of low-carbon electricity at the heart of its transition strategy, it is important for us to support start-ups that will make this energy transition faster and more efficient.
Station F director Roxanne Varza added: "From electricity management to sustainable mobility, the start-ups selected by TotalEnergies are an excellent illustration of the positive impact that innovation can have on our daily lives and on societal issues.
"We are delighted to welcome them to STATION F for this first season of the TotalEnergies program and to follow their progress."
