Helen, an energy company, and EnerKey, an expert in energy management, have begun working together with the aim of providing Helen’s corporate customers with powerful tools for sustainable energy management. The first phase of the companies’ collaboration will begin with a pilot project intended to identify an energy reporting entity that will serve Helen’s corporate customers in the best possible way.
“Among our corporate customers, there is a growing need to monitor, report and meter energy consumption and environmental impacts with the help of data. At Helen, we aim to provide our customers with the most powerful tools to enable them to do this. To gain a better understanding of customers’ needs and to analyse the best possible operating model, we have launched a pilot project with EnerKey,” says Jyrki Eurén, Helen’s Head of B2B Business.
Thanks to the energy management platform Powered by EnerKey, organisations are able to offer their customers the leading energy management and reporting tools in the Nordic region, branded with the organisation’s visual appearance and logo. EnerKey aims to partner energy companies as they develop future services for their customers.
“The pilot agreement we have made with Helen is all about taking the needs of end customers into consideration. At EnerKey, we want to help organisations move toward more sustainable energy management and improved energy efficiency. Our collaboration with Helen is an entirely natural step forward in this regard, as Helen constantly strives to offer its customers better services,” comments EnerKey’s Vice President, Jaakko Huhta.
Corporate responsibility is constantly growing in importance
At present, the importance of corporate responsibility is increasing rapidly all over the world. Sustainable energy management requires factors such as increased regulation, but it must also involve the end customers and stakeholders of companies. Corporate responsibility is a cornerstone of many companies’ business strategies.
In addition to sustainable energy consumption, EnerKey aims to help its partners and their customers to reduce their environmental impacts. This includes monitoring and reducing emissions, waste and the consumption of fuel for transport. Sustainable energy consumption is also very important to customers, while a good quality of indoor air is important to the occupants of buildings.
“We provide our partners and customers with tools that elucidate the effects of responsible operations. When actions are taken with the help of systematic monitoring, reporting and analysis, the results are directly apparent in the form of reduced emissions, waste and energy consumption and improved indoor air,” Huhta continues.
Helen Ltd’s energy generation has been named the world’s most efficient. We have over 450,000 customers in various parts of Finland, our district heating service covers more than 90% of the demand for heating in Helsinki and we are expanding our energy-efficient district cooling network in Helsinki.
