Elmspring is proud to announce the acceptance of Net Zero, a Session 2017 accelerator cohort participant, into the Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) OEM program/partnership.
“We’re thrilled when our elmspring companies gain access to additional opportunities that have the potential to further the development of their businesses. Net Zero and HPE working together will take Net Zero to the next level for market reach and servicing. We look forward to seeing their continued success.” says Bob Gillespie, Elmspring Accelerator Executive Director.
Net Zero targets buildings 400,000 sq. ft and under, over 80% of the buildings in the United States, to reduce energy consumption by a minimum of 25% for consumers. With an extensive background in building system design, modeling, and construction, Net Zero applies cutting-edge Utility Optimization Intelligences (UOIs) in order to reduce reliance on fossil fuels. Actively installing UOIs in Chicago and throughout the Midwest, Net Zero continues to innovate through its development of UOIs and its approach to implementation.
Joining HPE as a partner will help Net Zero expand their opportunities in the market while increasing their portfolio of deliverable solutions.

This partnership has been proven to help accelerate company growth through HPE’s market expertise, financial solutions, and rich enablement tools.
“Our ability to work with HPE, the most advanced global manufacture of I0T and IIoT gateways sets us apart from the crowd and ensures a quality product for our SaaS platform. We are all excited to be working on the development and deployment of the most Advanced AI Energy SaaS Platform in the market, which requires the HPE OEM team to co-develop and launch a matching IoT or IIoT Gateway yet developed to support our platform.” says George Sullivan, Sr. Principal and CEO of Net Zero.
