Principles of the Swisscom IoT Climate Award


Criteria for the award

Quantity

Overall reduction of CO2 emissions in 2020 in tons.

Intensity

Reduction of CO2 emissions per unit, i.e. CO2 reduction in grams per sensor or per customer.

Innovation

Swisscom will award the innovative character of the solution: Have new hardware or software solutions been developed? Have new measuring techniques been developed? Were efforts made to research or identify new applications?

Customer experience

As a company, how do you rate your project in terms of customer experience? What advantage does your solution provide for the customer? How easy is the solution to use? Is the solution self-explanatory?

Your application form

Two-page short description with the recorded data and quantities, which will allow the jury to understand the calculations.

 

  • Quantitative (1 page): Explanation of the calculation model; identification of the parameters used and the emission factors; the parameters used and the emission factors are clearly identified; the emission factors come from well-founded sources (e.g. from established databases such as Mobitool, EcoInvent).

 

  • Qualitative (1 page): Explanation of the innovation and the customer experience with links to websites, apps, etc.

From all of the projects entered, three will be awarded the IoT Climate Award. They will each receive an IoT Award, designed on a wooden board. They will also win a cash amount, which will be funded from the Swisscom Energy Efficiency Fund. The winner will receive CHF 20,000, second and third place will receive CHF 10,000 and 5,000 respectively.



IoT Climate Award 2021: These are the winners 

As part of IoT Day 2020, the IoT Climate Award was presented to three innovative companies for the first time on 23 January 2020.

 


1st place: The winning company in 2021 is Nexxiot. With its IoT solution, Nexxiot is optimising the logistics of cargo transport trains. The greater transparency of the locations and routes of the individual wagons makes it possible to significantly increase the efficiency and utilisation of the trains and to transport more goods by rail with the same number of wagons in a climate-friendly manner.

2nd place: The second prize was awarded to the Hinwil-based company Belimo, who combines intelligence and innovation with its heating manager "Energy Valve". The system of its innovative HVAC field device is used for monitoring and optimizing heat flows and ensures high savings in energy costs and reduced CO2 in numerous large buildings.

3rd place: Awarded the third prize by Energie Zukunft Schweiz for their LORALARM, which can be used to remotely monitor solar thermal systems in particular. This means that failures in solar thermal systems are detected early. The performance of the solar thermal systems can be increased by quickly resolving the fault. As a result, use of other energy sources such as oil or electricity can be significantly reduced, and CO2 saved.
