mCloud joins Google Cloud to develop sustainability apps that reduce carbon emissions
Do you have to see global warming to believe it? Maybe not, but mCloud certainly believes that visual aids will be of great help in identifying and tracking sources of harmful emissions.
That’s why the provider of artificial intelligence (AI)-based asset management and environmental, social and governance (ESG) solutions is launching a trio of sustainability apps aimed at reducing carbon emissions in the world.
The company seeks to deliver “results as a service,” targeting oil and gas facilities, commercial buildings and wind farms.
It applies industrial AI, visual analytics and 3D digital twin capabilities to measure, locate and correct harmful emissions, eliminate energy waste, minimize carbon and methane footprints and maximize wind energy contributions renewable in the world.
To achieve this, the company recently formed a strategic partnership with Google Cloud.
Under this partnership, the company will directly integrate and leverage leading Google Cloud services, such as Google Earth Engine, Vision AI, Natural Language AI, Translation AI, and TensorFlow, into its AssetCare Platform.
The goal of the partnership is to organize capabilities that will support the sustainability of asset-intensive and energy-intensive operations in a variety of industrial settings.
For example, its efforts could be applied to field crews at oil and gas facilities, giving them access to information enabling the detection and location of methane leaks, while virtual collaboration capabilities connect the front line to the back. -office in real time.
The company backed by Google AssetCare The platform will also be applicable to commercial and industrial facilities, helping to actively eliminate energy waste while minimizing energy consumption intensity, while also being able to be used to optimize park energy production. turbines, eliminating manual labor maintenance costs and automating wind inspection of turbine blades.
A partnership between mCloud and Google Cloud comes at a good time as the United States, European Union and Saudi Arabia make major commitments to reduce methane and implement stricter carbon emissions regulations. emissions.
As a result, energy-intensive organizations are looking for new technologies to automate their emissions management and sustainability programs; the areas that mCloud and Google Cloud are now targeting with these apps.
As part of the deal, the company became the latest member of the Google Partner Advantage program. Together, the two entities plan to jointly market and provide these applications to customers around the world, offering services to specific customers in the United States, Canada. , UK and Europe, Saudi Arabia, Malaysia and Japan; alongside major global clients already working with both companies.
Speaking on the company’s partnership with Google Cloud, Russian McMeekinchairman and CEO of mCloud, hopes it will “create many new and exciting opportunities to reduce climate emissions.”
“Direct collaboration between one of the industry’s most innovative clouds and its AI capabilities… and mCloud’s AssetCare creates substantial new operational efficiencies,” he continues.
“Being part of Google Cloud’s global network for our go-to-market allows mCloud to take applications in partnership with Google Cloud and reach key accounts in all major mCloud business regions.
“As an added benefit, we will be well positioned to align our sales, marketing, R&D and regional expansion with specific account and growth objectives.
“We started these activities in several key markets this summer and we will continue to progress together in the days to come.”
Adding to these comments, Friend ZaveryVice President/General Manager and Head of Platform at Google Cloud, said, “By leveraging Google Cloud and the capabilities made possible by Google Earth Engine and AI/ML Services, customers will be able to increase their efforts by sustainability by optimizing and mitigating their carbon and methane emissions with technology and at cloud scale.
Go-to-market activities between mCloud and Google Cloud are already underway, with plans for AssetCare to be available on Google Cloud Marketplace later in 2022.
