Smartvatten, a leading player in water metering, and EnerKey, the market leader in sustainable energy management, have entered into a partnership aimed at providing even more comprehensive water metering, energy management and sustainability services to end users of both companies’ SaaS services.
Powered by EnerKey platform solution provides the users of Smartvatten’s Master service with a high-quality sustainability and energy management service as a part of Smartvatten’s ecosystem. Smartvatten is already the leading player in water saving and water consumption monitoring services, so the aim was to create a partnership with the leading developer of energy management and sustainability SaaS.
“We have had good cooperation with EnerKey in the past regarding the transfer of water consumption data, but the strategic cooperation now announced enables our customers to have also excellent energy management and sustainability services. It is great to be able to offer our expertise in efficient water consumption to EnerKey’s customer base internationally as well,” comments Jussi Niiniaho, CEO of Smartvatten.
Both services naturally complement each other
From this collaboration EnerKey adds a strong partner to expand the growing ecosystem around Powered by EnerKey. The Smartvatten service complements Powered by EnerKey by providing even more extensive, real-time water metering services to end users. Smartvatten is naturally suitable for EnerKey’s SaaS service, which specializes in sustainability and energy management, while the water-saving service itself encourages more sustainable energy use. In this way, EnerKey’s value proposal to end customers “Sustainability & Savings” provides an even stronger base for real-time verifiable savings for water consumption.
“We at EnerKey believe in platform economy. We are building an ecosystem of the future, where leading SaaS services and metering solutions from different service providers will be combined to produce more added value for end customers than if purchased separately. Smartvatten generates verifiable savings through remote water monitoring and advanced consumption alarms. Now the collaboration with EnerKey also enables sustainability tools to their end customers. The integration of services is implemented through seamless system integrations, underlining how easy it is to join the EnerKey Ecosystem,” says Jaakko Huhta, EnerKey’s Vice President of Sales and Business Development.
Aiming for growth in the international market
The cooperation between Smartvatten and EnerKey offers a new channel for large-scale growth in the international market. In the first phase the cooperation with Smartvatten and Powered by EnerKey will take place in the Norwegian and Swedish markets, where EnerKey is making strong progress by offering the Powered by EnerKey platform solution as a tool for sustainable energy management for energy companies’ corporate customers.
“Smartvatten and EnerKey are the market leaders in their respective fields in Finland. Both companies are internationalizing rapidly, and the cooperation that is now starting will create an even stronger ecosystem around us,” says Ilari Anttila, CEO of EnerKey.
