Solyt­ic and Vir­tu­al Glob­al Trad­ing AG Win­ners of the Glob­al Ener­gyTech Awards 2021

With the Glob­al Ener­gyTech Awards, the con­sult­ing firm Pub­li­cis Sapi­ent has launched an inter­na­tion­al com­pe­ti­tion to bring togeth­er the best ideas and tal­ents in the glob­al ener­gy indus­try. Today, the win­ners were cho­sen dur­ing a vir­tu­al award cer­e­mo­ny. Awards were giv­en to start-ups and inno­va­tors from around the world who are mak­ing a pos­i­tive con­tri­bu­tion to the future of our soci­ety, econ­o­my and planet.

The award cat­e­gories cov­er the entire life cycle of the ener­gy sec­tor. Here are the winners:

  • Best Smart Net­work Solu­tion: Vyn­tel­li­gence
    Vyn­tel­li­gence offers a “mobile-first” solu­tion that enables field work­ers and cus­tomers to cap­ture short videos and mul­ti­me­dia data of jobs and assets in the field. This can opti­mize qual­i­ty and safe­ty and cre­ate a bet­ter cus­tomer experience.
  • Best Elec­tron­ic Vehi­cle Cus­tomer Solu­tion: Mina(UK)
    The Edi­son plat­form devel­oped by Mina sim­pli­fies the process of pay­ing for elec­tric vehi­cle charg­ing at home, at work and in pub­lic places. Fleets can thus be con­vert­ed to elec­tric vehi­cles on a large scale. As a result, there are few­er petrol and diesel vehi­cles on the roads, which in turn ben­e­fits the environment.
  • Mobile Cus­tomer Expe­ri­ence:Bat­teryX­change
    Bat­teryX­change is an ecosys­tem of bat­tery exchange ser­vices that allows end users to rent bat­ter­ies to charge their mobile devices on the go for free.
  • Best Solu­tion in Ener­gy Trad­ing: Air­Car­bon Exchange
    Air­Car­bon Exchange is a blockchain-based trad­ing plat­form that brings greater effi­cien­cy, trans­paren­cy and secu­ri­ty to the car­bon mar­ket. This is achieved at a much low­er cost than tra­di­tion­al car­bon trading.
  • Best Use of Data & Insights:Solyt­ic
    Solyt­ic has made it its mis­sion to make pho­to­voltaics easy and prof­itable for every­one to use. The dig­i­tal plat­form enables cus­tomers to reduce costs, increase yields and extend the life of their solar sys­tems from day one.
  • Best Clean­Tech:Vir­tu­al Glob­al Trad­ing AG
    The Vir­tu­al Glob­al Trad­ing plat­form offers ener­gy pro­duc­ers, con­sumers and “pro­sumers” a new way to exchange ener­gy with each other.
  • Stand­out Per­former:Vyn­tel­li­gence
    Of all the entries, Vyn­tel­li­gence par­tic­u­lar­ly impressed the jury with its inno­v­a­tive strength and there­fore receives this spe­cial award.

The award win­ners were select­ed by a jury con­sist­ing of high-rank­ing indus­try experts. The inter­na­tion­al team of judges includ­ed Dami­an Bun­yan (CIO, Uniper), Devrim Celal (CEO, Krak­en­Flex: Part of Octu­pus Ener­gy), Elvi­ra Fab­rizio (SVP Dig­i­tal & IT, Eni), Paul Mas­sara (Asso­ciate, Cre­ative Destruc­tion Labs), Dan Rein­bold (VP, Infor­ma­tion Ser­vices, Plains), Masud Haq (SVP, Pub­li­cis Sapi­ent), Shailesh Joshi (SVP, Pub­li­cis Sapi­ent) and Joe Tabi­ta (Ener­gy Lead, EMEA & APAC, Pub­li­cis Sapient).
