Title: €cosys control system for saving energy
The energy control system €cosys was developed in Styria to enhance the energy efficiency of large consumers. Via motion sensors, the lighting, heating, compressed air and other energy loads are automatically switched off or reduced as soon a people leave a room. In 2008 the application of this system in a factory hall saved 14% of electric power despite increasing production. This corresponds to savings of 162 tons of CO2 and nearly €46,000. Via Internet presence, a soundtrack and a planned documentary film, €cosys also contributes to consciousness building toward energy efficiency and environmental protection.
