Perto offers companies and homeowners an all-round service to make saving energy as easy as possible. Perto´s focus is on the replacement of inefficient heating and circulation pumps to highly efficient and smart pumps. In recent years there has been a technological leap in pump technology. High-efficiency pumps consume up to 90% less electricity. Our software and process make pump replacement easy. We only need a photo of the pump. With a picture of the pump, we calculate the power consumption and the savings potential, offering a personalized optimal solution based on a free and non-binding efficiency report. Customers receive a flat-rate solution that includes the new pump, the installation by a local installer and the management of all the forms and documents concerning the subsidy. The Federal Government subsidizes pumps exchange with 30% of the cost. Environmental impact: By replacing all inefficient heating pumps in Germany, savings up to 14TWh of electricity per year could be achieved. This amount is equivalent to the CO2 emissions that three large coal-fired power stations produce per year. Thus, 8.5 million tons of CO2 could be saved per year. SMART PUMPS- Smart high-efficiency pumps go one step further: They are equipped with intelligent measurement technology and are connected to an IoT platform, thus, ensuring the digitization of the distribution and consumption of the entire thermal energy in buildings. With the use of a self-learning algorithm, saving measures can be identified. Perto´s vision- Perto´s vision does not end with pumps. Our vision is that there will be no more inefficient electrical devices in buildings. To this end, we develop technologies and processes that will allow everyone to easily replace inefficient devices. By the use of a mobile device, our customers will be able to inventory all of their devices, identify malfunctioning devices and replace them.
