EcoSync

39% of our energy consumption and C02 emissions come from our buildings – and is expected to reach 50% by 2030. Larger organisations spend millions of pounds on energy bills whilst 70% of their heated rooms are actually empty, so 40% of their energy is wasted! EcoSync is a cloud-based platform that synchronises room bookings and heating control and so addresses all three issues: CO2 pollution, cost and wasted energy. Their solution is simple: Stop heating empty rooms!
