Vivid Technology and Origin Energy have partnered to develop LightingFlex, a lighting-as-a-service product, leveraging Vivid Technology’s intelligent Internet-of-Things (IoT) lighting platform MATRIXX.
Vivid Technology’s MATRIXX intelligent IoT lighting platform is proven to reduce lighting energy costs by as much as 90 per cent and is up to 74 per cent more efficient than typical LED systems.

Having already been installed in warehouses and manufacturing facilities across a large number of major blue-chip companies, MATRIXX has delivered in excess of $5 million of lighting energy savings and over 5,500 tonnes of Co2e saved in Australia to date.

LightingFlex customers will receive lighting-as-a-service over an agreed number of years, delivered by the MATRIXX intelligent IoT lighting platform, fully installed, managed and monitored without any upfront cost for an agreed contract term. At completion of this term, customers will have the option to either upgrade or buy the current MATRIXX intelligent IoT lighting platform outright for a nominal price.

Under this partnership, Origin will be responsible for the management of all sales and marketing of Vivid Technology’s MATRIXX intelligent lighting platform to Origin’s current and new customers. Origin will offer MATRIXX as part of a complete tailored energy solution which can include electricity supply bundled with solar (“Solar Flex”) and intelligent lighting solutions through LightingFlex, managed and supported by a single Origin account manager.

Vivid Technology, will be responsible for all aspects of installing its MATRIXX intelligent IoT lighting platform, including detailed on-site audits, engineered lighting designs, installation, operation, maintenance and on-going monitoring and analytics.

Origin is also harnessing new technology to offer customers a range of new solutions to make energy use easier, smarter and more efficient. With the addition of LightingFlex, initially to commence with a 12-month pilot, Origin expands its “one-stop-shop” capability, providing a diverse range of energy efficiency and renewable solutions to large energy users.

“We are pleased to partner with Origin and have our award winning intelligent IoT lighting platform MATRIXX as part of their national one-stop-shop energy efficiency offering,” Samuel Marks, managing director of Vivid Technology said.

“Origin is a forward-thinking energy retailer, and now Origin’s large customers can benefit from the efficiency and analytics that our MATRIXX intelligent lighting system delivers, all without any upfront cost or responsibility for operating and maintaining the system over the term of the contract,” he said.

MATRIXX IoT lighting, provides industry leading energy efficiency, cost savings, carbon reductions and enhanced lighting output as well as unparalleled operational insight. These insights are derived from analysing the rich data collected from MATRIXX via Vivid Technology’s Klarity cloud-based system and embedded sensors; sensors include ambient temperature, passive security, heat mapping, building intelligence, daylight harvesting and manufacturing environment sensing. MATRIXX is easily installed and designed to allow for future system expansion and continuity, eliminating re-fits over time.

“Our large energy users are telling us they want simple and easy access to energy efficiency solutions, so we’re providing this through a one-stop-shop,” Origin general manager, Business Energy and Solar, Ryan Willemsen-Bell said.

“We’re pleased to be able to offer Lightning Flex as it can help us deliver significant savings for customers and adds to Origin’s growing product portfolio specifically tailored for large energy users and business customers.”
