About us

A new era in the energy management of buildings and HVAC-R equipment

Founded in 2015 by two accomplished entrepreneurs, Frédéric Crampé and Patrick Leguillette, BeeBryte addresses the European market from its headquarters in Lyon/France and the Asian market from its Singapore office.
One of our investors is the Compagnie Nationale du Rhône (CNR), the largest producer of renewable energy in France. The company is also supported by French Sovereign Fund BPIFRANCE and French Environmental Agency ADEME and was initially accelerated by INTEL and TechFounders in Germany.

Our technology regularly receives international recognition such as “50 to Watch 2019” from Cleantech Group, or “New Product Innovation Award for Smart Energy Management 2020” from Frost & Sullivan. In 2021, BeeBryte has been labelled one of the 1000 Energy Efficient Solutions to change the world by the Solar Impulse Foundation.

Our vision

New ways for energy efficiency leading to unprecedented results

Energy efficiency is at the core of economic and environmental issues faced by companies and organizations. Taking control of your energy strategy means developing competitiveness in a sustainable manner. To address these challenges, BeeBryte supports you with an original approach, based on artificial intelligence.

BeeBryte puts at your service its expertise and technological knowledge fruit of several years of R&D, to reveal the dormant value in tons of data generated by your equipment. As a result, our solution makes your commercial and industrial buildings more energy efficient, smarter and safer with a reduced electricity bill and carbon footprint.

Our mission

Putting digital technologies at the service of optimal energy management of buildings and HVAC-R equipment.

BeeBryte was founded to address a threefold dilemma:
  • How to reduce the carbon footprint linked to increasing human activity?

  • How can companies contribute to this objective, while achieving competitive cost savings?

  • How can companies strengthen the security of their energy supply and ensure reliable equipment performance essential to the smooth operation of their business activities?

At the intersection between environmental responsibility and the need for competitiveness, our mission is to offer commercial and technological innovations that enable energy usage in a smarter more responsible way, with a lower energy bill.

BeeBryte provides an innovative solution, based on remote exploitation of data, which benefits everyone.

It’s a win for you,
a win for us
and a win for our planet.

Our values

BeeBryte is the fruition of an ambitious project initiated in 2015, whose objective is to reconcile digital technologies with responsible consumption, and performance. Since our beginning, these values have been the cornerstone of our strategy

  • Ingenuity

    We push against commonly accepted limits with enthusiasm and through our multidisciplinary expertise, in order to respond to specific and complex issues by adapting, exploring new avenues, and thus achieving unprecedented results.

  • Responsibility

    We actively generate energy savings for our customers, while ensuring the operational safety of their facilities, with honesty, commitment and responsiveness. Our action is also part of a shared objective of environmental responsibility.

  • Precision
