Positive Energy (previously known as Collective Energy) was founded in July 2014 by three engineers based in Turkey and Germany, who were united by a passion for making a difference within the energy sector. Today, Positive Energy offers commercial buildings owners the disruptive solution to save energy and cost, while getting the same quality level via operating the buildings with BEADs' AI (Building’s Energy Analysing Device). With the help of BEAD, the buildings will have a smart energy agent that works and manages the building 24/7. BEAD analyses how commercial buildings consume energy according to human behaviour patterns, occupancy ratios and ambience/environmental changes. The data collected is directed to the automation system as a real-time feedback. As a result, BEAD will be the first step towards “humanlessly” operated buildings: buildings that will wake up when you wake up, communicate and live with you, and sleep when you sleep. As a result, commercial buildings can achieve 15-20% energy savings and 10% of operations costs, which will certainly add points to the socially responsible goals. The Positive Energy team views buildings as living ecosystems rather than static assets, which have a high potential of becoming eco-friendly and sustainable.
The company currently serves countries in MENA and EU regions, which are estimate to have over 7 million of commercial buildings together. The target groups are commercial chains, including the supermarkets, banks, retailers, and hotels, which together are valued at 3.5 billion USD in market size. In the next few years, the team would like to enter markets in Nordic countries, Germany, Austria, the UK, and the UAE.

NGC consultants have already delivered a strong project for Positive Energy (Collective Energy back then) in Fall 2015. In this follow up project, the consulting team will be asked to develop relevant business models and investment options for Nordic countries, Germany/Austria, the UK, and the UAE.
Specific recommendations to be developed by the Consulting team are:
1. Analyze the commercial buildings markets within the regions of interest
a. Collect data on energy consumption and climate change effects for each region
b. Highlight relevant regional regulations for commercial buildings
c. Estimate the market size for commercial buildings for each region and identify the key players in Building Management and Energy Management Technologies
2. Create a Power Point deck targeting potential investors within the regions of interest
a. Present the market development trends for the next 5-10 years based on the above findings
b. Develop business models and corresponding investment options
The managing team of Positive Energy will incorporate your recommendations when strategic, tactical and operational decisions are to be made in the near future.
