Viridis at R20
Because it is a company dedicated to creating solutions for control and energy and utilities management for large consumers, Viridis has a team that aims to improve energy efficiency and enhance control and management processes. Leading the discussion about the importance of an efficient energy and utilities management system, combined with energy efficiency, Viridis participated in the discussion panel about the future of energy in smart cities.
Highlighting the need to promote energy efficiency as a mechanism for promoting energy transition to a decarbonized matrix, Viridis CEO Thiago Turchetti Maia presented success cases in large industrial and commercial consumers to R20 participants. For Thiago, investments in energy efficiency separately bring immediate benefits in the form of cost reductions for companies, but there is a great benefit for society from significant reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. According to Thiago the opportunity to share the experience of Viridis in a forum such as R20 reinforces the expansion process of the company to serve clients and markets worldwide.
