World : Cloud-based platform for smart energy called "Share the Light"

CMG in partnership with HERON, a joint venture of ENGIE, world's leader in the Energy industry and GEK TERNA SA creates one of the first and most innovative energy assistance programs in Europe. It is called "Share the Light" and offers HERON’s customers new ways to give back to the community with an easy to use cloud-based platform for smart energy donations. The mission of the program is to alleviate energy poverty and improve people's lives in Greece.

“HERON has recognized the transition to a human-centric energy business and has selected Gridmates as the technology company to provide a state-of-the-art platform for energy donations. Gridmates has helped HERON to enhance its existing social responsibility programs and create new campaign-based programs to improve customer and community engagement.” - said Mr. George Daniolos, CEO at HERON

"We believe that digital social responsibility is a key driver for community engagement and brand awareness in modern utilities" - said Dr. George Koutitas, CEO at Gridmates Inc. "HERON's program called Share the Light is a brilliant demonstration of how cloud based, smart grid and social media technologies can create a strong differentiator for the utility/retailer and make the difference in people's lives."
