SurplusMap

SurplusMap is building a geospatial intelligence platform that empowers decision-makers in green transition industries to make better and faster decisions to develop new green industries. CHALLENGE Today, decision-makers in the Green Transition are ill-equipped to make data-driven decisions and meet the challenge of reducing GHG emissions by 45% by 2030. They spend a lot of time and resources looking for relevant data, they work with fragmented decision tools, and have an inefficient engagement with complex stakeholders, who sometimes have different or competing values and interests. All these complexity and data challenges are bottlenecks in the Green Transition, and missed business opportunities. SOLUTION SurPlusMap makes it easy for decision-makers and stakeholders to collaborate and make data-driven decisions on where to develop green sustainable industries. They find all relevant data in SurplusMap and our user interface facilitates collaboration improving the quality and speed of the early planning phases, saving time and money. With SurplusMap’s energy companies, utilities, local or national governments, and green industries such as green hydrogen, data centers, battery factories make collaborative and data-driven decisions that accelerate the Green Transition. OUR VISION Surplusmap combines the power of cloud computing, earth observation technology, big data analytics, ML & AI, with UX design to create the ultimate no-code collaborative geospatial analytics platform designed specifically to meet the data complexity of climate change action and the green transition. We want to remove data gatekeepers and other bottlenecks, making it easy for everybody involved in the Green Transition to understand relevant data and use it to expedite data-driven decision-making to foster green economic development and achieve the goal of reducing GHG emissions by 45% by 2030.
