Innovation at Feedgy

Feedgy Lab

Innovation serves our beliefs. It translates our vision into a strategy for developing new services for our customers, which will benefit the entire industry.

R&D adapts to both new uses and new markets and relies on the most advanced technologies in artificial intelligence and photonic physics.

Innovation at Feedgy in a few numbers:

Artificial intelligence is a field that combines computer science and data sets to enable problem-solving.

Photonics physics is defined as the science of generating, controlling, and detecting light.

In this new context, the challenge is to have the lowest possible levelized cost of electricity (LCOE*) to increase profitability.

* The LCOE (Levelized Cost of Energy) is a measure of the total cost of energy production for a given installation. It takes into account all costs related to a system over its lifetime with a ratio of costs referred to as 'discounted' costs: production costs divided by the quantity of energy produced.

Feedgy has focused its R&D on two complementary pillars


Evaluate the performance level of any solar installation.
Qualify and quantify any potential anomalies.

Photonics Physics

Boost its production, performance, and lifespan.

Our goal: Reduce the LCOE, produce more, at a lower cost, and for a longer duration.

Digital: Energy Management and LCOE Reduction

For several years, Feedgy's approach has relied on the combination of algorithms with innovative instrumentation to enrich decision support and continuously provide new services.

Originally based on theoretical models, Feedgy transitioned to artificial intelligence in 2021. This technology is more precise, faster, more stable, and, most importantly, it opens the door to prediction:

This level of responsiveness and precision enables effective intervention by professionals in operations and maintenance (O&M). It also reduces the downtime of the plant, thereby avoiding a significant drop in production, which would have resulted in substantial revenue loss.

2. Photonics: Reducing LCOE

The word "photovoltaic" is composed of "photo," which expresses light, and "voltaic" for electricity. However, solar market players only focus on electricity. At Feedgy, we believe that the treatment of light is underutilized. Indeed, light is the fuel for the solar panel. Mastery of the light spectrum opens the door to additional reserves, synonymous with overproduction, but also to new applications, such as agrivoltaics.

Feedgy is conducting research on the optimization of the optical components of a solar installation, relying on the mastery of energy through photonics engineering: photonics*

* The science of generating, controlling, and detecting light

More concretely,

it involves offering our clients the best panels on the current global market and, for a given panel technology, producing more kWh. It's also a way to improve agrivoltaic techniques.

By partnering with the most efficient manufacturers in the market, we enable our clients to benefit from the highest power per square meter.
