ACOME has taken over the French start-up ENERGIE IP
The French group ACOME, manufacturer of high-tech cables and components for the telecoms and automotive sectors, is taking over the French start-up ENERGIE IP.
Formed in 2015, ENERGIE IP designs and sells the market’s best-performing innovative and patented technical building management solution (BMS) based on PoE (Power over Ethernet) technology. It equips nearly 50,000 m² of offices in Ile-de-France, including the Evidence building in Saint-Ouen, which has HQE, Wiredscore and BREEM labels.
This solution uses ethernet cables (rather than power cables) to transmit both data and power using a very low voltage direct current.
It is used to power and control all electrical equipment associated with office buildings’ comfort, such as LED lighting, blinds and air conditioning, while reducing energy consumption.
It makes buildings smarter and more scalable and facilitates the implementation of user services, with simplified maintenance that can be controlled remotely.
The ENERGIE IP solution is an excellent complement to ACOME’s cabling and service offers. This operation demonstrates the Group's desire to develop its system sales in Europe and meet smart buildings’ new connectivity challenges in line with RE2020.
With this in mind, ACOME plans to invest this year in designing and marketing new smart building solutions based on the technology developed by ENERGIE IP.
The ENERGIE IP team will be based at the ACOME head office in Paris and led by Antoine Cussac, ENERGIE IP Development Director, who will report directly to Anne-Sophie Decourrière, Director of the ACOME Building branch.
