Details

Tittle:
Innovative efficient heating/cooling technology, with a focus on control and management of home temperature
Summary:
An Italian company, based in Milan, a global leader in the sector of plumbing and heating components, has developed an innovative technology for remote intelligent management of heating/cooling systems with remarkable reduction of energy consumption. The company offers its expertise looking for research agreements within H2020 project proposals as well as for technical cooperation agreements.
Description:
An Italian company, based in Milan, is a global leader in the heating/cooling components with 16 branches in 12 countries and business relationships in more than 60 countries. Valves, pipes, heating systems, thermal grids are its main products and are developed following advanced manufacturing processes.
Recently, the company has developed a new technology that manages the heating/cooling system remotely and intelligently and reduces energy consumption by up to 40%. It can work with radiator systems as well as radiant heating systems. It allows to remotely manage and monitor temperature in every room of the house, from whenever: from the office, from the car, from the restaurant.
This innovative device communicates with all other elements thanks to a low frequency radio module. Powered by a 5-volt transformer (included in the package), it connects to the internet by either an integrated WiFi module or via an Ethernet cable (included in the package). This allows the device to interface with any other devices (PC, smartphone, tablet) via a dedicated app or through the use of a browser. The device may interact with radiator heating systems, with radiant floor heating systems and with fan coil-based central air conditioning systems.
The device temperature sensor replaces the old chrono thermostat. It measures the temperature in each room and uses a relay to switch the boiler on or off and open or close a zone valve when necessary. Thanks to the dedicated app, the innovative technology independently handles the different zones in the house by replacing the old thermostats with virtual and highly intuitive chrono thermostats.
In view of further technological development and business growth, the company is looking for partners with different roles: (a) industrial partners and building contractors willing to collaborate in system development and testing within a research cooperation Agreement;(b) industrial partners willing to cooperate in demonstration and prototyping activities under a technical Agreement; (c) the company is also interested in joining collaborative Horizon 2020 projects as a partner involving universities and research organisations.
Advantages and Innovations:
The new remote management technology leads to large benefits in terms of energy efficiency in comparison with similar systems already on the market. The new technology has been awarded quality, energy, environmental and safety certifications. Indeed, it is developed in accordance with the directive ErP 2009/125/CE for efficient eco-design of energy-related products.
