US A START-UP.
We’ve been doing this for a while.
MAKING BUILDINGS SMARTER SINCE 2008.
Ecopilot® was first commercially installed in 2008, but its technology is based on extensive research dating back to the 1970s from the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden.
KTH’s early research demonstrated the importance of a holistic approach to regulating indoor climate by taking advantage of a building’s thermodynamic properties – AKA utilizing the heat emitted by machines and people that is naturally stored in the building. This had the potential to simplify building controls and temperature regulation while also reducing the frequency and necessity of system interventions.
WE GOT SMARTER, TOO.
In the 1970s, collecting and processing the amount of data necessary to regulate a building wasn’t easy. High costs, lack of sensor technology and low computing power put a stop to a practical rollout of KTH’s original research findings. But thanks to today’s stable wireless technology, these barriers no longer exist – after all, a standard cell phone today has more computing power than what was available to a whole research team in the 1970s!
With wireless costs decreasing and installation technology becoming more sophisticated, Ecopilot’s modern Artificial Intelligence has helped make building thermodynamics an accessible solution for those in search of a smarter building. Since its first commercial installation in 2008, Ecopilot® now boasts more than 1,000 installations in Sweden, Germany, Norway, Switzerland, Denmark, the UK and Canada. That’s a lot of smart customers.
