North Lanarkshire green product company Autonomous iOt has vowed to help the UK’s business community become more environmentally friendly and save costs at a time when energy prices continue to rise.
The Airdrie firm says its hybrid lighting platform, already in use across Scotland, can provide “a quick and easy fix for any organisations who share the twin aims of being greener and saving money”.
More than 20 energy suppliers have been forced out of business since the beginning of August as wholesale electricity and gas prices have surged to record highs, forcing Ofgem to find alternative providers for more than two million households and nearly 58,000 business customers.

Autonomous, founded in 2019, is committed to tackling climate change through the research, development and manufacturing of environmentally conscious renewable energy products powered by the sun and wind.
Its intelligent lighting multi-use platform has already been purchased and installed by Renfrewshire Council, Scottish Sea Farms, NG Housing Association and Martec Engineering, each benefitting from carbon reduction and savings on previous costs.
Bobby Kane, Autonomous iOt CEO, told Lanarkshire Live : “COP26 has only sharpened the focus on the biggest issue we all share, ensuring a sustainable future on our planet for the next generations, our kids and grandkids and beyond.
“At Autonomous iOt we can help businesses make an immediate and tangible impact thanks to our hybrid lighting platform, which immediately makes a positive difference both environmentally and financially.”
The Autonomous hybrid lighting platform, managed by a smart controller, is extendable for applications such as communication, smart-city connectivity, emergency alert systems, and many more developing and future technologies.
Glasgow-based Martec saw an immediate carbon reduction and cost saving of the Autonomous iOt intelligent hybrid solution, that helps towards the Net-Zero Government goal.
Martin McHugh, chairman of Martec Engineering, said: “The units installed look excellent and are already saving my company money on a daily basis.
“Along with being solar and wind powered this intelligent hybrid lighting with CCTV monitoring is the future and will help in the fight against climate change.”
