What is the problem or challenge that your company/organisation is trying to solve?

BG wants to address the recent surge in requests from municipalities in the context of energy transition and crisis.

Today, gathering the key insights for preliminary municipal energy plan takes around 10 days, mainly because the process requires starting from scratch in every new city.

The main challenges they encounter are:

  • Inefficient process for gathering accurate data over a perimeter
  • Tedious combination of spreadsheets and GIS tools
  • Inadequate macro analysis makes it hard to deliver actionable solutions to implement now


How has your company/organisation solved that problem or challenge? Is there a particularly compelling project or customer story?

With Urbio, gathering and visualising data was made easy and transparent, while generating new scenarios took the engineers only a few clicks, providing a scalable solution to the municipality’s most urgent needs.


What are some key metrics that measure the success, impact, results of your solution?
