Energy consumption has dramatically increased in buildings due to population growth, more time spent indoors, increased demand for building functions (~40% of total primary energy consumption in the U.S. and E.U). The air quality is a crucial factor for the well-being and human productivity of the occupants of the buildings.The market requires new scalable energy solutions for a more efficient indoor energy consumption at low costs.
Our current market research shows that all the existing solutions are more expensive than ours and request more intrusive changes to the existing energy system and they are brand-based. Our IoT solution, called Energy Cloud kit, is the first non-intrusive retrofit solution both scalable and adaptable to potentially any building. It has been conceived around 3 keys enablers: EFFICIENCY, COMFORT; ENGAGEMENT. It consists in 4 main components: environmental sensors, actuators, cloud algorithm& apps
