The one-stop product platform for ambitious energy concepts

The growing demand for efficient energy utilisation and increasing sustainability awareness require intelligent control of building systems. The ecoEnergyCoach energy management system offers the right solution for apartment blocks, commercial and agricultural enterprises, and the management of entire sites. It integrates all technical building components across all sectors and controls energy consumption using dynamic parameters. The digitalised platform simplifies complex projects, optimises operations, reduces system costs and increases daily comfort for building users.

The solution for energy professionals

Installers and system integrators are increasingly realising holistic energy solutions but are confronted with highly fragmented markets for energy and building technology. As a unique modular product system, ecocoach's energy management system (EMS) integrates the different requirements of multiple trades, energy sources, and technologies into coherent overall systems. It digitalises and automates the process from commissioning to daily use.

  • EMS hardware in industrial quality
  • EMS software for intuitive and guided commissioning without programming knowledge
  • Integration of all relevant energy technology components - from the meter to the CHP unit
  • Remote monitoring and optimisation of customer systems via app and PC
  • Display of all energy data in real-time and historically
  • Static, dynamic and self-learning operating modes for load and charging management, self-consumption optimisation, peak load capping and building automation

Option to update the software and firmware for the control unit, end-user app and integrated end devices


Remote maintenance

Remote access for maintenance work with functions such as restart and audit log for usage history and restores


Sector Coupling Electricity, Heat & Mobility

Integrate your energy technology into a single system. Control consumers such as the heating or boiler and link them intelligently with the energy generators.

Self-Consumption Optimisation

In the self-consumption optimisation operating mode, self-generated electricity is maximised. As a result, only a small amount of electricity is drawn from the grid or fed into the grid. Consumers are switched on or off according to defined priorities. If an ecocoach battery storage system is added to the energy management system, self-consumption can be increased.

Optimum Control of Large Consumers

In commercial and industrial operations, large consumers in simultaneous use cause considerable load peaks. Thanks to the peak load capping operating mode, power-intensive processes are distributed throughout the day wherever possible. If electricity demand is too high, consumers are reduced or switched off based on their priority. This reduces consumption-intensive periods and prevents additional costs.

Monitoring & consumption recording

With the ecoEnergyCoach, you can continuously monitor energy flows. The energy management system measures the controlled electricity, water, and heat consumption in real-time and displays it graphically in an app. Cloud-based data collection allows you to monitor the entire building and the integrated consumers via the app or in the browser, such as charging stations or heat pumps. The consumption data can be exported in CSV format for billing interfaces.

ZEV - Own Consumption

The energy management system is supplied in a completely ready-to-connect and pre-wired box. The integrated PLC control system can be expanded as required in terms of interface cards, so that everything from small buildings to complex areas can be mapped. We supply the hardware pre-configured for easy commissioning.
