- Following its acquisition by the multinational Spacewell in 2020, the Barcelona-based technology company is changing its image to embark on a new strategic phase.
- Under the name Spacewell Energy, the company aims to consolidate its position as the leading player in efficient energy management in Europe, while seeking to expand its footprint in new international markets.
Barcelona – On 8 June 2023, Dexma, a leading company in intelligent energy management tools for buildings, retail and industry, announced its transformation into Spacewell Energy. From today, this new name will encompass all the company’s projects, both in Spain and internationally. The new name marks the completion of the integration process that began in 2020 when Spacewell, a technology company part of the Nemetschek multinational, acquired Dexma.
This new phase will be led by Xavi Novella, who was appointed Senior Vice President of the company in March 2023. According to Xavi Novella: “The world, technology and the needs of organisations are changing, and at Spacewell Energy we want to respond to these new challenges, respecting the ground we have covered so far, and looking to the future with optimism and a desire to continue growing”.
The name change symbolises the start of a new phase for the company, which was founded in Barcelona in 2007. This new phase is characterised by a strong ambition for growth, both in terms of customers and new markets. Spacewell Energy currently has over 10,000 customers in 35 countries, mainly in the UK, Spain, France, Benelux and Italy. To strengthen its relationships with international customers and drive growth, the company will remain based in Barcelona but will broaden its international focus. This step will be an opportunity to integrate employees in new locations such as the Benelux countries, the United States, France, Germany, India and the Nordic countries. The company has also seen significant growth in 2022, with a 24% increase in sales of its software licences.
Technology for Energy Efficiency
In this new strategic phase, Spacewell Energy aims to strengthen its integration within Spacewell, a multinational company that employs around 350 professionals and manages a portfolio of more than 80,000 buildings connected to analysis, energy efficiency and monitoring solutions. This integration will enable the company to focus on continued innovation. Currently, over 40% of Spacewell Energy’s employees specialise in the design and development of innovative solutions to meet the energy efficiency demands of their extensive customer portfolio.
“With Spacewell Energy, we are entering a new phase as an international brand, relevant to all the global markets where we operate and where we will operate in the future. The new name is intended to provide fresh impetus to meet new challenges and get closer to our customers, wherever they may be,” explained Xavi Novella, Senior Vice President of Spacewell Energy.
