Azendian Solutions (Azendian) was presented with the ASEAN Energy Award as Winner of the Energy Efficient Building – Special Submission – Cutting Edge Technology by Singapore’s Minister of State for Trade and Industry Low Yen Ling in a ceremony held in Bali, Indonesia on 25 August 2023 in conjunction with the 41st ASEAN Ministers on Energy Meeting and ASEAN Energy Business Forum 2023. Headquartered in Singapore, Azendian is an AI, Data Science and Operations Technology company that equips asset owners and businesses to achieve sustainability, ESG and productivity goals.
“What we do matters to accelerate a lower carbon, more sustainable Built Environment and we are gratified that the efforts of a small Singapore-grown enterprise have been recognized by the ASEAN Energy Committee. We are excited that Azendian’s AI solution is lauded as game changing in its approach, methodology and integration of Machine Learning data driven techniques with Operations Technology engineering systems, which has proven to be a powerful combination.
“Buildings are critical components of Smart Cities, but they also consume the most energy. The Azendian Estate Energy Optimisation Solution taps the power of AI and Machine Learning to ensure the building’s HVAC system is operating at the most efficient and optimized conditions, resulting not only in significant energy and cost savings for buildings and organisations, but also reduces CO2 emissions, achieving their financial, environmental, social, and governance (ESG) goals,” shared Mr Bill Lee, Azendian’s Founder and CEO.
The ASEAN Energy Awards is Southeast Asia’s highest accolade to recognise a greater private sector participation and interest in energy development and usage in ASEAN in partnership with the public sector. The Awards aim to promote awareness on best practices in the energy sector and encourage the private sector in clean energy transition, resilience, and sustainability technology.
The Azendian Estate HVAC Energy Optimisation Solution together with its Computerised Maintenance Management System, Fault & False Detection & Predictive Maintenance and Unified Platform solutions are uniquely positioned to support businesses in ASEAN towards achieving their energy and sustainability goals.
