Ogreen,a Spun-off Company from III In-Snergy Team, Provides Energy Saving and Smart Management Solution Packages for B&B Owners at Eastern Taiwan by In-Snergy Technology
Yen-Nan, Chen, a project manager from Taitung and known for his nickname "The prince behind the mountains", joined III Smart Network System Institute In-Snergy(Internet Smart Energy)team as a research and development alternative military serviceman in 2009. Now, he transforms into the president of Ogreen, a Spun-off Company from III In-Snergy Team, hoping that he could assist domestic B&B industry by In-Snergy solution packages.
With the support of the Department of Industrial Technology (DoIT), Ministry of Economic Affairs, III Smart Network System Institute conducted "Open IoT and Low-Carbon Application Technology Project". The project was designed to open IoT platform and promote low-carbon application solution package In-Snergy. Moreover, it was expected to assist start-ups and enterprises start using this open IoT platform. In-Snergy was awarded R&D Global 100 in America. There are 4 solution packages within In-Snergy including smart family solution "In-Snergy Family", enterprise energy management system "Ectaury", smart lighting management system "In-Light", and renewable energy management system "LIZA".
Yen-Nan, Chen selected specifically for B&B hosts "In-Snergy Family" smart family management system which uses gateways to match cloud smart plugs. By the App developed by In-Snergy team, it's extremely convenient to remotely turn on or off electric equipment so that the ideal goal to smartly use electricity and securely save energy could be achieved.
As a matter of facts, in the research and development process, the team simultaneously considered how to apply the technology in our living environment. After gateway producers integrate relevant equipment and consumers purchase equipment such as cloud smart plugs and smart sensors, with the free App, users could instantly figure out power consumption of their houses and decide whether to turn their electric equipment on or off in a remote distance, which fits exactly the IoT usage habit of modern users.
Stimulated by the entrepreneurial atmosphere in III which actively encourages staffs in the organization to start their own businesses, III Smart Network System Institute In-Snergy team project manager Yen-Nan, Chen considered that the hardware equipment of In-Snergy is mature and ready for mass production. He further believed that the functions of the system meet the market demand of the future. For these reasons, in October 2015, he brought In-Snergy back to his home town, Taitung, to start his own business. While III acted as the technology development and research team as well as the product provider, the entrepreneur played the role as the dealer promoting green energy related products and services in the market.
To understand the market demand at Taitung, III Smart Network System Institute In-Snergy team and Yen-Nan, Chen spent over a year visiting about 20 B&B hostels. After deep understanding and communication, they found out that these hostel owners usually obtain information later than those of the other areas. Most owners are busy trying to increase occupancy while neglecting to think about energy conservation. Moreover, it never comes to their mind that conserving energy could help them to save more money than they realize."
Finding the market opportunity, Yen-Nan, Chen led some members of the In-Snergy team to establish Ogreen and targeted the B&B market. Yen-Nan, Chen pointed out that one thing that helped B&B hosts the most was the infrared controller developed by In-Snergy team. By environment setting, air conditioners, which are also the highest power consumption equipment in guest rooms could be controlled more efficiently. Therefore, B&B owners could save a lot of expenses on electricity.
While standing at the turning point in his life into the thirties, Yen-Nan, Chen gallantly expressed that Ogreen should expedite the pace and launch a series of products to take the lead in the market. At the moment, he also introduced the infrared controller to his own B&B so that the place could be the best domestic smart energy saving demonstration and promotion base and provide instant maintenance and repair services for the residents. In the near future, he expects to bring the research and development team to public attention for gaining the interest of venture capitalists and continue to push his dream further--establishing the future of a more Earth friendly environment with the help of modern technologies!
