EnOcean has developed sustainable solutions for the global megatrends of energy management, office space optimization and wellbeing and has aligned its strategy for accelerated growth. Owners and tenants of houses, buildings, and industrial facilities can realize smarter and more sustainable working and living conditions and thus significantly reduce energy consumption and CO2 emissions. As a pioneer and market leader in energy harvesting and sensor-to-cloud solutions for sustainable Internet of Things (IoT) applications, EnOcean sees significant growth opportunities, particularly in the retrofitting and energy optimization of existing buildings.
The requirements for sustainable energy use are increasing worldwide due to climate change, new working and living environments, and legal regulations. "Against this backdrop, we have developed IoT-based solutions for the key global megatrends of energy management, office space optimization and wellbeing. With these, owners and tenants of houses, buildings and industrial facilities can use alternative energy sources, realize smarter and more sustainable working and living environments and ultimately significantly reduce energy consumption and CO2 emissions," explains Raoul Wijgergangs, CEO of EnOcean. The most important keys to greater efficiency, productivity and environmental friendliness are energy harvesting from alternative energy sources in the environment and the smart use of sustainable IoT solutions. "With our energy harvesting technology, high-quality sensors, the cloud-based IoT connector, an end-to-end approach, and a large partner ecosystem, we have strategically developed our business model and aligned it with global megatrends. In doing so, we want to ensure the continued growth of EnOcean and make an important contribution to a future worth living for generations to come, taking into account economic, ecological and social aspects," says Wijgergangs.
Owners and tenants of houses, buildings and industrial facilities around the world are facing the major challenge of reducing energy consumption and CO2 emissions.
- Energy management: Regarding sustainable energy management, EnOcean ensures multi-layered energy optimization based on current data. Manufacturers of switches can thus drive intelligently controlled light and heating switch-offs to save energy in unused rooms, for example.
- Office space optimization: EnOcean also offers new concepts for optimized space utilization based on new work models such as desk sharing. This can ensure a flexible, healthy and comfortable working environment. It also optimizes energy costs, drives building automation, and aligns the office and building landscape more effectively and efficiently.
- Wellbeing: Automated adjustment of temperature, lighting, or even air conditions significantly improves wellbeing and productivity in working environments.
"Modern energy use through alternative and self-sufficient energy sources and sustainable IoT solutions are a win-win situation for companies and the environment. Our solutions not only open up value-adding options for owners and tenants, for example through predictive maintenance and condition-based servicing, but also reduce energy consumption and CO2 emissions in particular. 20 million sensors sold have already saved 1.484.000 tons of CO2," emphasizes Wijgergangs.
