CIBC Innovation Banking announced that it has increased its growth financing commitment to Bidgely, a leading provider of artificial intelligence (AI) powered energy intelligence solutions for energy providers worldwide. The additional financing commitment will strengthen Bidgely’s ability to support critical utility initiatives, particularly as the proliferation of electric vehicles (EV) and global decarbonization goals redefine the energy market.
“Layering on AI to customer data is an incredibly powerful tool for empowering utilities to build modern electric grids that are resilient and reliable, while also encouraging consumers to reduce their carbon footprint”
Bidgely’s UtilityAI™ analyzes smart meter data to provide appliance-level insights into daily energy consumption without requiring any intrusive monitoring hardware, giving utilities comprehensive insights into customers’ usage patterns and anticipated grid loads.
By empowering utilities with data-driven insights, Bidgely enables utility companies to achieve strategic goals such as accurate grid planning and load forecasting, together with the ability to better manage the influx of EVs on their grid through enhanced customer engagement, optimized time of use, load shifting, and managed charging.
“Layering on AI to customer data is an incredibly powerful tool for empowering utilities to build modern electric grids that are resilient and reliable, while also encouraging consumers to reduce their carbon footprint,” said Abhay Gupta, CEO of Bidgely. “This commitment from CIBC Innovation Banking will fuel our ability to continue innovating solutions that support the evolving needs of our utility partners.”
