Articae Ecosystem

Energy intelligence ecosystem for HVAC and refrigeration 4.0

What is energy intelligence?

The combination of SCIENCE, ENGINEERING and EXPERTICE powered by Artificial Intelligence and Big Data for energy performance optimization.

Energy Intelligence

Reduce energy consumption

14% on average. Depending on the climatic area and operating conditions, up to 30%.

Reduce operating cost

Proportional to the energy savings and increased by maintenance and lifetime improvement.

Reduce climate impact

Reduction of direct GHG emissions (refrigerant leakage) and indirect (electricity consumption).
