The Endi startup: what it means to keep the problem of energy consumption at heart

Now is a startup born with the aim of avoiding surprises in the bill and implements this thanks to energy consumption monitoring. Furthermore, what the startup wants to do is raise awareness the final consumer, who will be led in a very natural way to change his consumption habits. This way you have a significant impact on both wallets that onenvironment.

For this reason, the focus of Endi is embodied in the condominiumsespecially those with centralized systems.

«In the condominium we have identified a problem relating to the end user, who has to wait up to 6 months to find out how much he has consumed and how much he has to pay. On the other hand we have the condominium administrator, who especially in this historical period is unable to predict energy costs and finds himself having to issue extraordinary condominium installments to pay the bills. Therefore, disputes arise from the condominiums, since the condominium installments are not calibrated on the basis of consumption.

declared the CEO Lorenzo Maffioli. To deal with this problem, thanks to the Endi web-app, every tenant has the possibility of knowing in real time how much he is consuming and spending.

The startup Endi, how it works

The responsive web-app (which will become an app downloadable from Play Store e Apple Store very soon) Endi.cloud was designed to become a real virtual energy assistant of each tenant. But above all, the update on consumption would take place on a daily basis, and not just a month as already commonly happens.

Not only updating from an energy point of view, but also logistically: Endi thinks of everything. The user’s consumption is explained by indicators and graphs which allow you to understand if you are consuming well or badly, as well as giving reports on malfunctions o waste energy, tips on how to save and much more.

Maffioli reported.

Gamification to encourage savings

Endi also gives a touch of fun, to entice the user to save money and be careful with consumption. How does it work? Systems are set up that reward users on the basis of their consumption habits, proposing consumption reduction challenges. They will have to accumulate points that they can spend on marketplace in Endito win discounts on products or services offered by partner companies.
