About viboo

Led by Felix Bünning (Founder and CEO), Benjamin Huber, and Matthias Sulzer, viboo makes buildings more energy efficient through its predictive control as a service platform. Rooted in extensive research at Empa and ETH Zurich, the company empowers smart thermostats with predictive algorithms, reducing energy usage by 20-40% in both light-commercial and residential buildings.

Initially, the platform’s algorithms learn the thermal behavior of a building. viboo’s technology can then predict the building’s temperature evolution, considering factors including the weather forecast and occupant preferences, and subsequently optimize the energy input into each room. By allowing smart thermostats to fully play to their strengths, viboo can lower a building’s energy consumption. 

viboo makes partnerships across the value chain, including Danfoss, ABB, Netatmo, and Bouygues.
