FOR SWIMMING POOL HEATING
The characteristics of Sunny Shark
Save up to 15% of heating costs.
Optimizing the energy costs
We are creating and commercializing a product that allows our clients to optimize the energetic costs of collective swimming pools by considering multiple parameters such as weather forecasts, all the thermic exchanges between water and its environment and energy’s hourly rate.
For a different operating mode
Our product differs from the way swimming pools are usually operated. Operators usually heat the water when it’s already under the set temperature, without any consideration for the production cost of the heating at set time.
With the help of a communication box and an intelligent algorithm
Sunny Shark is composed of a physical part, installed at the client's facility, under the form of a box communicating both with the machinery (heat pumps, temperature sensors…) and our servers. These servers host our database and specific softwares that allow us to develop and transmit, in real time, intelligent heating approaches that are suited to each facility and situation.
Who is Sunny Shark for ?
Managers and operators
You operate a collective swimming pool (whether it is communal, for a hotel or a water park) which is equipped with a heat pump or resistive heating. You wish to decrease drastically your electric fees while maintaining your users’ comfort: it is our main goal.
Heat pumps manufacturers
We would like to partner with one or multiple heat pump manufacturers, in order to offer to have our device directly incorporated in their communicating machines. This way, they could offer an immediate competitive advantage to their customers.

THE HISTORY BEHIND OUR PROJECT
The initial idea emerged in 2011 on the observation that the traditional water heating regulation of swimming pools was simplistic and inefficient.
After 2 strengthening years, a market study and tests that were ran on a pilot pool, the project was first accompanied by NEXA and then incubated from 2014 to 2015 in Reunion Island’s Technopole.
During this incubation, a second pilot installation was made on the heating system of the water sports center of Saint-Paul. Other installations were later made on different sites. – voir résultats EN CHIFFRE.
We were supported in 2018 by the Credit Agricole bank's “supports fund for innovation”.
We also employed a PhD student in 2017 as part of her thesis which was also funded by the National Association of Technological Research.
We participated in two national events as exhibitors: :
- Smart Energies Exhibition in Paris (June 2017).
- Smart City/ Smart Grids Exhibition in Paris (October 2017) in which we were speakers for a conference dedicated to smart grid exhibitors.
