“neofizient” develops the first automated energy consultant

The “Helmholtz Enterprise” funding programme and we support the DLR spin-off “neofizient”. In spring 2019 the Climate-KIC Start-up is going to bring its portable and easy to use measurement system to market. Energy consulting for buildings is to become easier, cheaper, and more objective by the algorithm. Energy consulting for buildings is an essential pillar of effective climate protection and regarded as a “sleeping giant” – “neofizient” helps to shake him up.

How it works:

Photos and infrared images are superimposed in a model. The invention is based on cameras, which take 360° images in the visible and infrared spectrum. From this data a model of the room created. The superimposed infrared images in the model illustrate the energy health information. Even non-professional users should be able to handle the system and analyze the results, e.g. to localize thermal bridges.The tool is deemed to be affordable enough to be used by layman, skilled workers, and energy consultants.

Future development

Further improvements of the software should allow the programme to give recommendations for the renovation of home energy systems. This would create the first automated energy consultant.
