Ecofective

Early Stage Startup





Tagline

The first step to save energy is to use the right amount of energy



Elevator Pitch

Ecofective's EE2 is a patented energy efficiency management system for existing buildings. By applying thermodynamic algorithms, EE2 leads to annual energy savings of 13-25% without any change to the existing central heating system. EE2 calculates the needed power in real time, offers 24/7 operational support and stores data for analytics. EE2 is scientifically proven and tested by Fraunhofer Institute for Building Physics (IBP).

Having installed EE2, cross-system communication and data collection become easy. Moreover, EE2 calculates the complex thermodynamics in real time and immediately influences any central heating system‘s operational logic, irrespective of manufacturer, age or type of energy.

Ecofective’s EE2 system – what is unique
High value at low cost, investment of 1-3 Euros per sqm, payback time within two heating seasons, immediate energy savings in existing buildings of 13-25% per year, easy and fast installation in less than a day, no changes to the existing heating system (HVAC), real-time remote management, consolidated energy data.

Market readiness
EE2 is presently installed in more than 140 large multi-tenant and office buildings. Selected references: Studentenwerke in Frankfurt and Leipzig (student halls), LWB Leipzig, degewo Berlin (multi-tenant buildings) and the building authority of Nuremberg (school). The system has also proven very good results in schools, buildings for elderly care, office buildings, hotels, and student residence halls. EE2 is appreciated as a smart and cost-efficient solution through its open interfaces and the usage of the most proven standard components.

Product

EE2 is an energy efficiency management solution, software and hardware that combines high-tech thermodynamic optimization calculations with low-tech smart analogue integration. It has a patented energy interface and climate chamber, offering a unique way of interacting with existing HVAC systems.

EE2 is an open system. Any relevant innovations in IT, sensor and optimization logics can be integrated. It makes it easy to consolidate data from multiple legacy heating systems and to reduce the amount of purchased energy. EE2 is a future-proof and cost-efficient solution.

Your benefits from using EE2

- It becomes easy to collect and consolidate data from multiple legacy heating systems
- You are able to reduce the amount of purchased energy
- You get a future-proof solution through open interfaces, flexible databases and a fast programming language
- Since it is scalable, EE2 can be operated individually or in large clusters of hundreds of systems
- You can guarantee cost-efficiency through usage of the most proven standard components
- Last but not least, EE2 is robust because it operates independently of internet connectivity.
Solution overview – EE2 installation in an existing building

EE2 captures three relevant areas - please have a look at the diagram as well

1. Indoor temperature
2. Exterior climate
3. Energy conversion and transportation in the building

EE2 provides added value

4. Real-time calculation of needed power with direct influence on the heating system
5. Remote monitoring with notification, access through any fix/mobile device
6. Data storage for statistics and analytics

Ecofective Patent

7. Climate chamber to influence the building’s heating system





Why we are ecofriendly

Our focus is to introduce new smart automatic and analytical methods for heating operation in large buildings with simple standard heating systems. The solution pays for itself within maximum two heating periods using a smarter way of controlling the heating power.

In addition, the most relevant data is collected, providing visibility of mal functioning components in the heating system, as well as weaknesses in the building's thermal characteristics.

Since our solution is implemented within a day based on standard procedures it can easily be scaled for installation in hundreds and thousands of buildings within a short time. Therefore our EE2 energy efficiency management system has a visible impact to progress towards the 2020 and 2050 energy efficiency targets (EU, single member countries).
