writes that Orus optimizes the energy usage of numerous buildings through its software, enabling them to run off renewables during peak times when possible, to reduce costs and emissions. This can also help owners reduce heating and cooling costs, as the platform can take into account thermal inertia before optimizing energy consumption.

Co-founder Alexandre Girard said that "Orus Energy's mission is to enable decarbonized power grids through consumer involvement. Our approach is unique: by using buildings as thermal batteries at scale, we can help unlock 6 gigawatts of power demand in France alone by 2030."

Energy flexibility can prove most useful in the industrial sector, as it can be more easily coupled with solutions like energy storage to maximize efficiency and further reduce operational costs and emissions long-term. Just in France alone energy flexibility generated 1.3 billion euros in 2023.

Fanny Sauvée, co-founder and COO at Orus Energy, added that "the grid's critical role in balancing production and consumption at all times is becoming increasingly challenging.”

So far, Orus Energy manages the energy consumption of buildings amounting over 1 million square meters in the industrial and commercial sector.
