("Clear Blue" or the "Company") (TSXV: CBLU) (FRANKFURT: 0YA) (OTCQB: CBUTF), announces full integration of its Esite product with its industry leading Smart Power Cloud management service, Illumience.

Building on our customer validated features that are the foundation of Illumience:

  • Maximum Uptime and Performance;
  • Longest System Life;
  • Easy to Install and Maintain;

Our product differentiation will leverage our un-paralleled collection of one trillion data points supporting:

This large proprietary data store forms the basis for the next layer in the AI stack – machine learning. With more than 38,000 years of operating data, we have the largest repository of solar and energy performance of Telecom and IOT systems. This is the key to leading the market in Artificial Intelligence.

The Esite-Illumience product release in Q1 is the next step and through the next three quarters, Clear Blue’s service will be enhanced with:

  • Our new Insights dashboard which provides network wide deep analytics and power systems metrics to identify degradations that will eventually lead to outages or degraded performance;
  • Enhanced power uptime performance analytics including grid availability, potential energy, and true battery state of charge;
  • Enhanced commissioning, installation and maintenance incident management, and;
  • Solar panel, battery, and cabling smart diagnostics.

The Road to Zero Diesel for our customers

As companies experience un-paralleled cost and currency pressures, reducing and eliminating diesel energy costs – including both fuel and site servicing costs - is of utmost importance. Clear Blue has already proven that it can deliver the lowest upfront cost – as an example, solar only systems with Clear Blue’s Smart Power have a 40% lower Capex than other systems. Now, Clear Blue is bringing this capability to diesel powered larger systems via our AI driven product roadmap.

“We are pleased that the rest of the industry is now seeing the importance of the data and analytics foundation that we built Clear Blue’s product stack on from day one”, said Miriam Tuerk, CEO of Clear Blue. “Pair that with the significant growth demand in the market for connectivity and for green power, we are meeting the challenges of our customers as they grab this significant growth opportunity.”
