ENGIE, in collaboration with the Nanyang Technological University (NTU, Singapore) and SIGFOX are seeking submissions of innovative Internet of Things projects, specifically those suited to Low Power Wide Area Networks.

The goal of this call for Projects is to help visionaries develop and commercialize projects embarking Internet of Things technologies and developing services to serve their clients. Short-listed projects will be presented to the judges during World Cities Summit in Singapore (10-14 July 2016).

Deadline for submissions: May 31st midnight (Singapore time, GMT + 8 hours)

Purpose of this call for projects

ENGIE is looking for Innovative Internet of Things projects, specifically those suited to Low Power Wide Area Networks.

The advent of open access IoT networks such as SIGFOX, opens up possibilities for a wide range of new or improved applications.

The jury will consider two types of projects:
a) Value by Optimization: Projects that involve existing use cases, such as smart metering, or vehicle tracking, that will become more efficient or less expensive by integrating SIGFOX connectivity.
b) Rupture: Projects that will connect new types of devices, or develop new business models thanks to these devices. 

The following areas are of special interest:

  • Utilities
  • Urban Energy Efficiency and Sustainability
  • Logistics and transportation
  • Home solutions and Smart Cities

Submitted projects are expected to be innovative and unique, and not merely modifications of existing solutions.

Applications will be judged based on the following criteria:

  • Originality/innovative nature/ambition of the submission (new technologies/approaches/procedures);
  • Suitability of the technology for the proposed usage;
  • Market potential;
  • Social and/or environmental impact

Provisional calendar

Tuesday, May 31st, 2016 at midnight (Singapore time, GMT + 8 hours): Deadline for submissions;
Week of June 6th, 2016: Examination of submitted projects by the Selection Committee and announcement of finalists;
Between 10 and 14 July, 2016: Pitch of finalists to the Selection Committee, final decision and announcement of winner(s).
