PEAKnx, manufacturer of innovative solutions for future-proof home and building automation from Darmstadt and the Vienna-based clean tech company neoom have entered into a partnership for the upcoming Light + Building trade fair in Frankfurt, and living in an intelligent building will even be smarter.
Cooperation for holistic solutions in energy transition
Hardly any other topic is currently as hotly debated as climate change and the associated energy transition. The new partners PEAKnx GmbH and neoom ag have set themselves the goal of making their own contribution to energy transition and have been looking for a joint solution for energy management in smart homes. This solution was found in the combination of NTUITY and YOUVI and Walter Kreisel, CEO & Founder of neoom ag, is pleased about the cooperation of the two innovative companies: "Holistic solutions are one of the basic requirements to make energy transition possible. That's why we view energy generation, storage and use, including energy management, as a holistic process. In order to enable end users to manage their energy flow quickly and easily, the integration of energy management in smart homes is essential. We are pleased to have found a partner in PEAKnx, with whom we can make the best of both worlds accessible to end users".
Lorenz Rohrmann, Managing Director of PEAKnx GmbH, also welcomes the new partnership: "Walter Kreisel knows both sides of the coin - smart homes and energy solutions - as he started his entrepreneurial activities with a smart home company. Therefore, we are convinced that with neoom we have found the right partner for our mission of integrating energy management into smart homes!"
YOUVI visualisation software integrates IoE platform NTUITY
With the integration of the Internet of Energy platform NTUITY from neoom into the PEAKnx visualisation software YOUVI 4.4, modern energy management enters intelligent buildings. Residents of smart homes benefit from the combination of the two products in the energy management of photovoltaic systems, storage units, heat pumps or electric charging columns, and for the first time they can take a look behind the scenes of their energy management in YOUVI. This makes building control even more energy efficient.
The future lies in the Internet of Energy
The core factor for the Internet of Energy is connecting people, devices and buildings. The integration of NTUITY into the YOUVI visualisation software stands for intuitive, decentralised and predictive energy management of the future. All key data of energy management in smart homes can - after a one-time registration via the YOUVI bridge for NTUITY - be displayed and accessed directly in the visualisation software with API key and location ID. For example, the energy balance of the building, the power from the photovoltaic system or the charging status of the wall box are visualised. In the event of energy peaks, excess energy generated by the photovoltaic system can be fed into the house battery or back into the grid via NTUITY. In addition, it is possible to use surplus power generation in a targeted manner via the YOUVI logic module in the KNX-controlled smart home, so that certain devices are only used or charged when there is a power surplus.
Julius Schärdinger, Head of Sales at neoom, considers the partnership with PEAKnx as essential for future-oriented energy management. "The Internet of Energy makes it possible to optimally control one's own energy flow and thus make the best possible use of self-generated energy - an important step towards the most sustainable and economical energy consumption. We are therefore convinced that the Internet of Energy is the future and will soon be an indispensable part of every household. To make this future vision a reality, innovative cooperations are needed. We are pleased to have found the right partner here in PEAKnx," says Schärdinger.
Joint energy management solutions at the Light + Building trade fair
A first highlight of the new cooperation between the two companies is the Light + Building trade fair in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. Under their future-oriented mottos "We bring the future to the home" (PEAKnx) and "Working together to create tomorrow’s energy today" (neoom), the integration of modern energy management in smart homes will be demonstrated at the trade fair from 2-6 October 2022 in Hall 9.0 at PEAKnx Stand B 70.
