Build Own Operate Maintain (BOOM)
When planning Smart public infrastructure, the total cost of delivering, maintaining, and upgrading over time must be considered. In ENE.HUB’s Commercial Model ‘Build, Own, Operate and Maintain’ (BOOM), the total cost is made up of the Capital (CAPEX) to build the infrastructure, and the Operating costs (OPEX) to run, maintain and upgrade the network.
The CAPEX is typically contributed by the Land Authority and by ENE.HUB, who may contribute some or all of the required amount. Given the desire to scale Smart networks over time, ENE.HUB has structured the OPEX based on tariffs, and each tariff includes delivery, commissioning, maintenance, and upgrade of the Smart Service or technology. We call this Smart City as a Service (SCAAS).
ENE.HUB’s shared infrastructure attracts third party revenue from the Telecommunications Industry and others. This revenue reduces the Land Authority’s total cost of owning and running the network and is shared with the Land Authority.
