Belimo to utilize Optimum Energy’s IoT tech

January 10, 2019

Optimum Energy and Belimo AG have announced a licensing deal that provides Belimo with Optimum Energy’s recently patented IoT technologies for smart valves.

The agreement brings together Optimum Energy’s creative technology with Belimo’s hardware innovation to make smart valves even smarter and more valuable with practical, energy-saving solutions.

This deal builds on the success of the award-winning Belimo Energy Valve, which incorporates Optimum’s technology and was launched in 2012.

Optimum Energy works with campuses, hospitals, pharmaceutical plants, high-tech manufacturing facilities, data centres and other commercial operations to cut energy costs and meet sustainability goals by optimizing HVAC systems, the largest consumer of energy in buildings.

Larry Stapleton, Optimum Energy president, said, ”We’re honored to continue our partnership with Belimo. They are the best in the field, and we know they’ll turn our ideas into reality.”

”It’s exciting to see our innovations improved upon — it’s always gratifying to help advance energy-saving smart building technology in the Internet of Things.”

The three licensed smart valve technologies provide powerful algorithms designed to enable optimal efficiency, reduce energy and water use, and lengthen equipment life, among other benefits.
