The start-up

gulplug proposes a combined hardware (E-cube sensors) + software (Save-it-Yourself platform) solution that measures the electricity consumption of machines and produces savings recommendations for energy managers.

The need

Reducing industrial and manufacturing power consumption

Manufacturing and industrial firms have worked hard to implement efficiencies across their operations: lean processes, smart supply chains, and just-in-time procurement have cut waste and streamlined production.

Energy efficiency has a key role to play in cutting costs and increasing competitiveness. Even during non-productive periods, when machines are not running, energy use can be as much as 50 to 70 per cent of total power consumption. gulplug’s solutions have been developed to make energy efficiency as easy as possible for energy managers at manufacturing and industrial plants of all sizes in all sectors.

The solution

gulplug provides a disruptive technology based on magnetic electrical connection with a smart energy sensor in order to plug and measure easier, faster and safer!

The magnetic electrical connection is a new shape of flat and twistable plug.

The energy sensor is a ready to clamp wireless and self-powered electrical energy estimator. Not intrusive, the sensor reports by radio energy data without any loss.

The value proposition

Repeatable, controllable cost reduction

The guplug solutions help industrial energy managers to monitor energy use and to reduce energy consumption by up to ten per cent. They require minimal capital expenditure and typically deliver a return on investment within one year. The solutions continue to deliver cost savings year on year, enabling energy managers to meet strategic corporate goals for reducing operational expenditure. The guplug solutions also support a company’s efforts to achieve ISO 50001 certification for energy efficiency.

gulplug’s energy sensors and connectivity solutions have been deployed by food processing company, Bonduelle, and the automotive manufacturer Line-Fenwick. Industrial giant, Schneider Electric, has also installed gulplug’s solutions in its Carros plant in France.
