Decentralized sustainable energy for everyone



Elevator Pitch

When looking for a renewable energy system, house owners wish for professional advice, full cost transparency, cheap financing, fast and professional installation and, above all, self-sufficiency. Currently, the purchase is complicated, non-transparent, time consuming and there is a lack of companies who offer integrated energy solutions. Through combination of clean technologies comprising heat pump, solar, battery storage and ventilation, Wegatech designs and installs customized energy systems making their clients independent from energy providers. The company is building a “Green Energy Platform”, where customers can configure their personal home energy solution online and receive a fixed-price-offer within minutes. Standardized tools and workflows are used to digitally connect customers, back office and assembly teams with each other for a fast, reliable and scalable purchase and installation process.

Product

Increasing electricity rates and decreasing feed interest make self consumption of photovoltaic electricity more and more attractive. To maximise potential savings, an energy storage unit will bring a first step enabling the use of electricity during the night. However, Wegatech believes that taking a heat pump into the system will have an even greater impact on environmental and financial savings. Not only will the system leverage unused electricity but it will reduce cost and CO2 emission by replacing an old gas or oil heating with the concept of power-to-heat.
Wegatech goes one step further and uses an intelligent control system to increase the internal consumption of electricity. Even if the house does not need further heating, the heat pump uses surplus electricity and heats up an extra-large buffer and a warm water tank. Another approach can be the separation of heating and warm water production, using an internal warm water heat pump, reducing the temperature in the heating system and thereby increasing its efficiency.
Wegatech is creating an online platform, where owners of family houses can inform themselves about the different technologies. Choosing the importance of factors like amortization, price, CO2 emission, self-sufficiency, durability etc. a configurator recommends an energy system which shows the best fit for the customer and sends out a fixed-price-offer. This offer is calculated by an algorithm which incorporates the combined experience from five years of planning and installing these energy systems. It takes into consideration the exiting technological circumstances and the future needs of the client. This is extremely important when developing energy concepts for new buildings in order to reach defined energy standards and hence receive funding by the state.
As a one-stop-shop, the value chain of Wegatech comprises generating customers online, in-depth consulting services, customized planning, professional installation as well as maintenance and after-sales. Standardized tools and workflows are used to digitally connect customers, back office and assembly teams with each other for a fast, reliable and scalable purchase and installation process.
Another part of Wegatech is designing and installing energy concepts for CO2 neutral residential areas. In this case, the company is responsible for energy systems of up to 200 houses and uses district heating solutions which are highly efficient and do not lose as much temperature as one central heating.



Why we are ecofriendly

A customer combining a heat pump, a photovoltaics installation and a battery storage unit reaches a degree of self-sufficiency of up to 70%. At the same time, this means a CO2 reduction of approximatively 230 tons in 20 years. By 2020, Wegatech aims to have saved more than 1 million tons of CO2 emission. Since there are more than 3 million heating systems older than 20 years in Germany, Wegatech feels a responsibly to show as many people as possible how to save CO2 and money by modernizing their energy system.
