New proptech platform to address energy efficiency in offices

15th February 2024

Dutch proptech platforms Edge Next and Sense by Physee have merged to create Next Sense, a platform for reducing wasted energy in the office sector.

The new platform has also secured new capital from sustainable officer developer Edge, parent of Edge Next and Physee backers Timeless Investments, SHAPE Capital, and Job Dura.

Next Sense's integrated AI platform (dashboard pictured above) provides detailed energy and space usage analysis to comply with stringent corporate sustainability reporting guidelines. Additionally, the platform employs building physics algorithms to limit energy consumption to 70kWh per sq m, aligning with the requirements of the Paris Agreement. Only 3% of European offices currently meet this standard.

Coen van Oostrom, founder and CEO at Edge, said: ““The global market urgently requires a unified and standardised approach to reduce the carbon footprint of our buildings. Next Sense is ready to fulfil this critical need. I’m confident that all stakeholders engaged with Edge will eagerly welcome the next-generation software platform designed to support them in tackling this huge challenge of decarbonisation confronting us all."
