EnOcean has unveiled sustainable innovations aimed at addressing the worldwide megatrends of energy management, office space optimisation, and wellbeing, setting a course for rapid growth.

These solutions empower owners and tenants of residential, commercial, and industrial properties to achieve smarter, more sustainable living and working spaces, substantially cutting energy use and CO2 emissions. As a specialist in energy harvesting technology and sensor-to-Cloud solutions for eco-friendly Internet of Things (IoT) applications, EnOcean is poised for significant expansion, especially in upgrading and enhancing the energy efficiency of existing structures.

Utilising alternative energy and IoT to diminish energy consumption and CO2 output

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 optimisation and wellbeing. With these, owners and tenants of houses, buildings and industrial facilities can use alternative energy sources, realise 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.

Addressing global challenges: energy management, space efficiency, and wellbeing

Worldwide, property owners and tenants are tasked with the significant challenge of reducing energy use and CO2 emissions.

Energy management: EnOcean promotes in-depth energy savings through real-time data, enabling manufacturers to develop smart, energy-efficient solutions for lighting and heating in unoccupied spaces.

Office space optimisation: Introducing novel space management strategies, such as desk sharing, EnOcean facilitates a flexible, healthy, and efficient workplace while minimising energy costs and enhancing building operations.

Wellbeing: EnOcean's automated systems for adjusting temperature, lighting, and air quality markedly boost workplace wellbeing and productivity.

"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," emphasises Wijgergangs.

Light + Building: spotlight on eco-friendly innovations

"With our solutions, we create sustainable added value for intelligent building automation in compliance with national and international legal regulations. Our wireless, battery-free and maintenance-free sensors for energy harvesting and our Cloud-based IoT connector help to analyse the collected data and make informed decisions to optimise building performance," says Wijgergangs.

At Light + Building in Frankfurt am Main (March 3 to 8, 2024, booth 9.0 D 10), EnOcean will underline its motto ‘Sustainable IoT for Healthy and Green Buildings’ by showcasing its sensors as well as its SmartServer.
