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.

IoT Climate Award 2020: 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.

 

The first prize was awarded to Cadec with its "TeleButler" solution. This innovative solution, which allows remote control of heating in holiday homes, significantly reduces CO2 emissions. The appealing design and user-friendly interface were additional factors that convinced the jury.

 

Sensile, the second ranked company, is considered a pioneer in IoT. The remote monitoring of gas and oil tanks has been ensuring more ecological logistics for over 20 years. Only when the tanks nearly are empty they are refilled. This significantly minimizes trips to the tanks.

 

Avelon achieved the third place with their system for monitoring and optimisation of heating, ventilation and cooling installations. The solution contributes to an essential reduction of CO2 and electricity in the main building of the Migros Cooperative Association in Zurich.
