Gentrack, a global next-generation solution provider for utilities, and UPowr, a pioneering Software-as-a-Solution (SaaS) platform that helps manage the lifecycle of clean energy products for homeowners and businesses, have announced a strategic partnership.
What does the partnership mean for the energy sector?
The collaboration between Gentrack and UPowr represents an exciting union of modern, cloud-native technologies and by combining their expertise, the two industry leaders will deliver a comprehensive suite of software solutions designed to streamline and optimise solar energy usage. For residential and business customers, this means making it quicker and easier to electrify their properties and move away from carbon-based energy products.
As renewable energy continues to gain traction as a viable alternative to traditional power sources, this alliance seeks to address the growing demand for efficient solar panel and battery installation management. UPowr provides a user-friendly platform that manages the system design, sale, and installation of solar systems, batteries, heat pumps, and other “Behind the Meter” assets and provides an end-to-end installer view unique to the market.
As the electrification of the home gathers pace, energy providers have an increased need to manage these processes to deliver exceptional, fast service to their clients. For home and business owners this technology allows them to oversee the installation and maintenance of solar panels and batteries and empowers users to make informed decisions about their energy consumption, leading to reduced utility costs and a smaller carbon footprint.
This strategic partnership will see Gentrack integrate its state-of-the-art product-to-profit g2.0 solution with UPowr’s platform, enabling seamless, accurate, and transparent billing for solar energy consumption. Both companies are committed to working together to help develop and implement solutions that benefit not only home and business owners but the planet as well, as the world moves towards a more sustainable energy landscape.
