About us

Context


Human-induced climate change is undeniable. The building sector is the most important contributor, as it accounts for some 40% of all our energy use. But at the same time, it offers an enormous potential to save energy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and lead the way to a low carbon society.

The building sector today lacks actionable feedback about actual energy performance of buildings.

Clearly, buildings need to be made more energy-efficient. Today, building performance is primarily verified in the design phase, through energy labels that are based on buildings plans and written specifications. But we know that a building's design merely indicates an ambition. It does not reflect how the building actually performs when delivered.

CHARP way


Today's energy labels fail to give insight in the actual built quality. Moreover, studies show that the actual performance often turns out worse than expected. At CHARP, we want to see this changed. Applying state-of-the-art, robust algorithms to analyse building performance data collected on site, we assess in detail the real energy performance of buildings.

We provide the necessary tools to assure energy efficiency measures lead to actual savings.

Together with our partners, we offer state-of-the-art IoT and software solutions to generate and analyse building performance data. We benchmark performance with similar buildings, optimise energy use instantly where possible and set up cooperatives to optimise energy use on an aggregate scale.

Products

IoT and analytics seamlessly integrated


Our tools are a breeze to configure and set up, so that you can start assessing real energy performance instantly. Together with our IoT partners, we provide a hardware system that is plug-and-play, ultra low-power, secure and extremely reliable. Our software platform seamlessly runs on top, and allows you to intuitively structure building, performed tests and analyses.

We offer 3 distinct tools to assess the actual energy performance of your building.

U-value test


Local thermal performance of building elements

Overall heat transfer test


Thermal performance of whole building envelope

Full performance test


Energy performance of building, services, and users
