How Everything Started
Our journey started when entrepreneur and innovator Thorbjörn Geiser discovered how big the deficiencies in the climate control of buildings were. He realized that energy use in residential buildings was much higher than necessary. The available systems only based their data on the outdoor temperature to regulate the indoor climate. They therefore failed to utilize the building’s own ability to store heat and take into account other parameters that also affect the climate inside of a property. In addition, they could not adjust the heating for future weather conditions.
Thorbjörn decided to change that. He started a collaboration with a weather institute and developed technology and cloud-based software that could optimize indoor climate and energy use in a much more efficient way.
Egain was founded in 2003 and has since then energy-optimized over 250,000 apartments in 11 countries around Europe.
