Connecting electric devices to drive the energy transition

December 2020

Nowadays, the integration of decentral renewable production (mostly PV) and e-mobility into the electricity grid poses a huge challenge. tiko has created a solution that is capable to connect residential and SME (small-medium enterprise) electrical devices like heat-pumps, batteries, solar panels, electric car charging stations, and direct heating systems.

With the tiko home energy management system (HEMS), the owner can optimize their electricity use, save energy, and lower their bills. Owners can also share their energy in communities and microgrids to locally consume, optimize, and share their energy. On top of that, devices can be aggregated together into a virtual power plant (VPP) where the owners can earn money by offering the flexibility of their devices on energy markets.

Implementation Stories

Tiko by tiko Energy Solutions AG
Implemented by Régie Immobilière de la Ville de Paris in Paris (France) in 2021

The Régie Immobilière de la Ville de Paris (RIVP) implemented the Solution between October and December 2021. The public housing company installed Tiko’s Room Temperature Programming in favor of their tenants in Paris.


The tenants have made energy savings up to 35% by using tiko at its full potential (having a minimum of 3 programs per room). according to the french electric mix, this saving represents a co2 reduction of 1,5 tons

Tiko by tiko Energy Solutions AG
Implemented by Mobility in Mobility stations all accross Switzerland (Switzerland) in 2022

As part of the “V2X Suisse” project, along with six other companies, tiko is participating to an innovative approach to stabilizing power grids through the medium of electric vehicles (EVs). Going forward, the idea is that Mobility EVs should be able to provide bidirectional charging – in other words, they will be able to feed energy back into the grid when not being driven. This approach will help stabilize the grid, minimize bottlenecks in the distribution grid, and avoid, reduce or delay the need for expensive grid expansions.


Mobility EV plugged into a bidirectional charging station can feed up to 20 kilowatts of power back into the grid. This would amount to 60 megawatts across Mobility’s entire car-sharing fleet.

  • 80 to 320 kg of CO2/year saved through energy savings
  • 24 to 120 kg of CO2/year saved by the end-customer
