New growth opportunities available for best-in-class energy startups.


Stora Enso is looking for solutions to identify and optimize their energy consumption, alongside potentially other utilities such as compressed air, water, and chemicals in the production process. The primary objective is to attain a clearer understanding of electricity and steam usage, pinpointing indicators of inefficiencies and opportunities for reduction.

Opportunity overview

Stora Enso seeks to enhance decision-making for mill operators by offering fact-based support, establishing new benchmarks, and fostering ongoing improvement. While the production has a good overview of total energy usage, identifying detailed inefficiencies remains largely manual and inadequate. Resource consumption, including electricity, steam, fuel, compressed air, water, and chemicals, fluctuates significantly due to various factors such as product types, equipment status, design limitations, seasons, weather, and raw materials. Stora Enso is on the lookout for solutions to analyze these variations and optimize their use of energy and other resources. We are seeking innovative partners and solutions to develop widely scalable solutions to support Stora Enso’s sustainability and business targets. Piloting would happen in one board mill with successful solutions having the potential for broader implementation across Stora Enso’s mills. 

Examples we're looking for

Energy usage visualisation solutions

Solutions giving the operators better overview of the energy usage level and indicators of potential inefficiencies.

Energy efficiency indication solutions

Innovative solutions to draw attention to the right parts of production process to indicate, where the energy usage level is not optimal.

Energy optimization

Guidance for operators and end-users on how to optimize the energy usage based on the prior visualization and indication of inefficiencies.

Part of the global bioeconomy, Stora Enso is a leading provider of renewable products in packaging, biomaterials, and wooden construction and one of the largest private forest owners in the world. We believe that everything that is made from fossil-based materials today can be made from a tree tomorrow.
