BMWi Recognition for American University Project

Company News, Energy Management, Heating, Ventilating & Air Conditioning (HVAC), Automation, Robotics & Artificial Intelligence (AI), Americas
MeteoViva is the recipient of an Energy Efficiency award from Germany's Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) for its work at the McKinley Building on the American University Campus in Washington, D.C.

 

Reserved for German companies, the award celebrates outstanding contributions to improving building performance—in this instance, through an installation of the company's MeteoViva Climate self-learning (AI) smart building management platform which has delivered energy and CO2 savings for three years.

 

Commenting on the award, Stefan Schwab, CEO of IoT system provider Enlighted, Inc., which worked with MeteoViva on the project, said:

"With its purely data-driven approach to sustainable building control, MeteoViva stands out from other solutions. 

 

"Instead of relying on structural or investment measures, the platform uses smart system control data with considerable success as it reduced heating and cooling costs for the McKinley building by 36 per cent in the first year, and by 41 per cent in the second year.

 

"The reductions are all the more remarkable as the building had been extensively renovated and equipped with new, modern building automation technology only two years earlier."

 

Dr. Stefan Hardt, managing partner of MeteoViva GmbH, added:

"We are very proud that our solution has been recognised for several awards during the last year, including an award from dena [Deutsche Energie Agentur] for a client project in Germany with fraport."
