About Us

Our History

LPGE was founded in 2008 by Horacio M. Durán and Fernando Gassó for the development and implementation of projects and solutions in the fields of Costs, Management and Energy throughout Argentina and Paraguay.

In 2013,  Alejandro de la Barra, a specialist in electrical and electronic engineering, joined our team as a partner, while in 2018  Sebastian Zapata, a specialist in Sustainable Air Conditioning joined us as a team member. With Horacio Durán becoming majority partner, LPGE became a leading company in energy efficiency, opening offices in the Dominican Republic for the development of the Bocel Group project (second flour mill in the country).

In 2016, associates from Germany were incorporated and, after a significant investment in R&D, we developed inhouse a propietary technology for indoors air conditioning monitoring and control system to optimize energy consumption. We currently manufacture, install and control remotely the complete system ourselves..

Today we are the only manufacturers of this modality of efficiency in air conditioning in the Americas.
