In modern cities, there are enough thermal energy flows generated by human activity to provide the base for both heating and cooling of the entire city. However, the energy produced is not always used efficiently. Ectogrid™ has created an integrated energy system that is easy to manage, sustainable and cost-efficient.
How it works
By connecting buildings nearby each other to balance the different flows of energy between them, all available thermal energy is used and the energy input and as well as the carbon footprint is reduced.
To make this happen, Ectogrid™ is using the latest technology within AI and IoT built into the system called ectocloud™. Ectocloud™ adds flexibility to the demand side of the electric system, by using the thermal inertia of the buildings and grid as a battery.
The Ectogrid system is easy to manage. All complexity is handled by the grid and the units in your building are highly standardized. It makes it easy to maintain as well as to make changes to if the energy needs changes.
Ectogrid™ is a product and a patented technology, powered by and with heritage from the energy company E.ON. It can be licensed worldwide and is currently being marketed by energy companies in Sweden, Germany and the United Kingdom.
