Mr. Martin Pečar, Advanced solutions for energy management

Martin Pečar is the founder of OmniOpti, provider of advanced solutions, focusing on mobility and logistics. A mathematician by profession, he has worked in R&D for over a decade, and led the R&D department of fleet management company Telargo, by then the biggest Slovenian-Japanese joint venture. After Telargo has been acquired by Descartes, he took over the business development for the Balkan region. He then went on to work at the Jožef Stefan Institute as a researcher; there he was asked to manage the Slovenian Strategic Research & Innovation Partnership for Smart Cities & Communities, which included 150 members in the first year. The Smart Cities project looks at city level transformation, both digitally and technologically, allowing cities to modernise innovatively. His diverse experience (including being co-author of a US patent for automatic computation of the road network, using floating vehicle data) has enabled him to be part of various aspects of technological transformation across a variety of fields such as AI, city modernisation and business development.
