Customer Story StudierendenWERK BERLIN

Transparent heating. Affordable housing.

StudierendenWERK Berlin installed the Egain system in its properties, and with it, sensors to monitor the flow and return temperature of the heating system of each respective facility.

The system continuously communicates the temperature profile of each respective heating circuit and the amount of energy used to the Egain customer portal, which then visualizes the data. The Egain energy expert constantly analyses the collected data, which helps ensure the heating system’s functional quality.

Compared to conventional work schemes, requiring janitors to make regular visual inspections of the heating equipment and bi-annual maintenance visits by heating contractors, this method creates an almost real-time chain of reporting on any functional variations of the heating system.

Reduced CO₂-emissions:
ca. 41.500 kg (1 year)
Energy savings/year::
11,8 %

“Thanks to Egain, we discovered three consecutive actuator motor failures in the heating system of a section of the student hall in Storkower Str. Without constant monitoring, we wouldn’t have noticed these motor failures until much later. With Egain, we could identify and fix this malfunction of the heating system quickly. This prevented greater damage to the overall system. Moreover, in averting this malfunction, we saved significant additional energy costs.

The energy management system (Egain Edge) automatically uses weather forecasts for all connected locations and has resulted in annual energy savings of 11.8% to date. This is a good amount that helps us continue offering affordable housing in the future.”
