We are BEE Group
A long journey in which we have earned a wide experience in science and knowledge by participating in more than 41 national and international research projects that has carried on a trade to emerge two new business “start ups”.
The Building Energy and Environment Group (BEE Group) collaborates with national and international companies and institutions. As BEE Group, we understand that the goals and challenges we face could be achieved better if companies that are sensitive to the needs of society and researchers who develop cutting-edge innovations work together. The BEE Group is currently participating in the following projects:
In 2006, we created Inergy, a company specialized in applications and services for energy management and energy efficiency measures. And, at the beginning of 2017 we are just launching BEE Data Analytics, a new company to consolidate the work done in the last years, which has been focused on offering services of energy user engagement and business intelligence for distribution and retailer energy companies and their customers.
