CHICAGO — March 25, 2019 — Industrial artificial intelligence leader, Uptake, was named today as a 2019 New Energy Pioneer by Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF). The award is in recognition of ground-breaking companies that are fueling the transition to a lower carbon economy and bringing new ideas for business models, technologies, market structures and commercial opportunities.

“I’m proud of the entire Uptake team and our commitment to our energy, transportation and industrial customers who use our artificial intelligence platform and applications in the field everyday,” said Uptake CEO Brad Keywell. “Our goal is to delight customers with impactful outcomes, and each new customer offers further proof of our belief that AI and data science should power operational decisions in major industries. Our market leadership has been fortified by our independence from any singular OEM. Further, the impact of our delivered outcomes has been magnified through our ownership of the world's most comprehensive dataset of equipment failure patterns. Through the Uptake lens, industry productivity looks even better.”

With the massive amount of data generated by industrial machines, companies are increasingly searching for simple ways to turn this data into action that improves their bottom line. Using artificial intelligence and data science, an intelligent industrial platform turns machine data into insights, predictions and recommendations. With insights, people can improve all aspects of industrial performance, make better-informed decisions that impact both topline and bottom line financials, and help optimize the overall business.

The winners from more than 185 applicants were assessed against three criteria:

  • Potential to scale the opportunity and have global impact
