SMEs in Germany struggle with optimizing energy consumption due to limited resources, expertise, and time. Traditional energy management solutions are often complex and inaccessible to non-experts, leading to inefficiencies, higher costs, and missed savings opportunities.


Echo Planet developed Ember to address these challenges by focusing on accessibility and usability. Ember leverages NLP as the primary interface, allowing users to interact with their energy data conversationally. This approach eliminates the need for extensive training and expertise, making energy management tasks more intuitive and efficient for SMEs.


Since its launch, Ember has achieved 100% user satisfaction with over 1100 engagements. Users report significant time savings and efficiency gains by using Ember for tasks such as energy procurement, KPI calculations, and optimization scheduling. The platform empowers SMEs to make informed decisions, optimize operational efficiency, and achieve substantial cost savings through data-driven insights.

Ember represents a transformative approach to energy management, democratizing advanced techniques for SMEs and setting a new standard in operational efficiency. As Echo Planet continues to enhance Ember with agent behavior and automatic machine controls, the platform is poised to become indispensable for businesses seeking to streamline energy management and maximize savings.
