The start-up

vilisto offers an energy saving solution for radiator heated office buildings, enabling savings of up to 40% off heating costs. The AI-based proprietary technology uses self-learning algorithms and integrated presence detection to turn off heating when users are not detected. It also reduces energy use by anticipating user behaviour based on past room occupancy. vilisto additionally utilises collected data to offer digital facility services, providing added value for energy and building management.

The need

Inefficient energy consumption has become a major issue for companies and local authorities. Employees often use energy inefficiently as the cost is borne by the company, creating a free-rider problem. This issue creates a huge potential for energy and cost savings as offices are being continuously heated even when they are not used up to 80% of the time.

The solution

Fully automated self-learning heating technology offers a new solution. vilisto allows companies to effortlessly achieve the highest energy consumption savings available on the market without requiring a change in user behaviour or manual programming. This is achieved using an AI-based radiator thermostat with integrated presence

The value proposition

  • Saves up to 40% heating energy with RoI < 3 years.
  • Low investment for hardware and software with fast and simple installation.
  • Added value for energy and building management by digital services.
