Energy and the Internet of Things (IoT) – a strategic partnership
Columbus Energy, Saule Technologies and Google Cloud Start Strategic Partnership for Innovation in Energy and Internet of Things (IoT)
Columbus Energy and Saule Technologies have entered into a strategic partnership with Google Cloud to develop new products using perovskit photovoltaic elements and solutions in the field of distributed energy and the Internet of Things. Google Cloud will also be a technology partner for both companies and provide them with cloud computing services.

The fast-growing global Internet of Things (IoT) market is forecast IoT – Internet of Things) will be worth $ 1.1 trillion by 2025. The idea of IoT is to connect a network of different, often very small, and highly specialized electronic devices that create and transmit information between them. However, they require power, which has so far limited their possible application.
Saule Technologies’ foundation perovskit photovoltaic cells – the world’s first company to produce them – are not only extremely light, thin and flexible, but also efficient in artificial light. These unique advantages make Saule Technologies cells the ideal power source for all types of IoT devices in almost all conditions and locations, regardless of the availability of an electrical network.
– The inability to provide IoT solutions with independent power has been a major obstacle to IoT expansion so far, but our perovskite cells solve this problem. – Arthur Kupczunas, a board member of Saule Technologies, says. – Now, many brilliant ideas backed by our partners from Columbus, who are very experienced and innovative in Google’s innovative technologies or photovoltaics, will finally have a chance to come to fruition.
The first product using this technology is already in production. They are electronic price tags (Perovskite Electronic Shelf Label – PESL), equipped with a perovskite cell, is wirelessly managed, allowing several price changes during the day, and uses the analytical and computing potential of the Google cloud. One of the advantages of this technology, which was previously unavailable, is the ability to use sales tools efficiently, while minimizing the problem of expired food waste.

The potential applications of this independent energy source are potentially unlimited. In the future, perovskit cells, inter alia, can be used to activate sensors that monitor forests and other areas at risk of fire, or to provide a wider range of drones that provide medicine and food to people in need in areas that are difficult to reach.
Columbus Energy, Saule Technologies and Google Cloud will also collaborate on distributed energy solutions.
– Columbus Energy is developing its proprietary, intelligent system of energy flow control and optimization – PowerHouse. Our HEMS (Home Energy Management System) will be a tool for intelligent management of all devices and energy generated in the home. This is a special algorithm that studies energy behavior to adapt energy consumption to the needs of the household. Thanks to the partnership with Google Cloud, we have the opportunity to accelerate the implementation of this tool and improve its functions. – David Zielinski, president of Columbus Energy SA, says
– We are delighted to be able to work with Saule Technologies and Columbus Energy, Poland’s innovation leaders in new energy sources, and to support them in creating products that can revolutionize many areas of the economy and life through the use of tools. offered by cloud computing. Transforming green energy using digital technologies is also one of our top priorities at Google. Not only are we committed to zero energy emissions by 2030, but we are also creating solutions to help others achieve similar goals. – Magdalena Dziewguć, country manager for Google Cloud in Poland, says.
The companies believe that their partnership will accelerate Poland and the potential global energy and digital transformation for the benefit of all, but above all for the communities most affected by digital exclusion or green energy supply problems.
