Figures and facts,
company development

  • In 2016

    Independent Energy was founded in 2016, within its framework a number of major international projects in the nuclear power industry were developed based on the BOO (build-own-operate) model. It was then that we realized that most customers needed simple, effective solutions, not complex technology assets.

  • In 2018

    In 2018, we decided to create and develop the Energy Consumption Management project, which is based on an amalgamation of simple technical solutions and artificial intelligence.

  • By 2019-2020

    By 2019-2020 we accumulated sufficient experience and resources to implement “behind the meter”, energy saving projects, focusing on the use of machine learning and artificial intelligence algorithms using various hardware platforms.

  • In 2021

    By the beginning of 2021, we tested the equipment of 4 manufacturers, achieving an understanding of their compatibility and interchangeability. We have developed data technology to accommodate both wired and wireless data transmission. Currently, 12 facilities are undergoing monitoring and control systems are successfully functioning at 5 facilities. We plan implement installation at several dozen new facilities in the first quarter of 2021.
