About us

We are engineers and carpenters, pilots and philosophers. We come from around the globe and speak an unkonwn number of languages (counting the large variety of Swiss dialects). We are individuals, and we are a team. We are commited to paving the way for a world in balance. We are ECCO2.

How it started

In 2014, the pioneers Urs Grossenbacher and Beat Ackermann founded Pronoó AG and developed a system that uses weather data to optimize the energy efficiency of building heating systems by incorporating freely available solar energy.

After the initial successes, the technology is steadily developed further in the following years and begins to establish itself in the Swiss market. By the end of 2019, five people are working in the team.

Successful projects with significant success in energy savings announce the next stage of development and a major growth stage that makes the system ready for large-scale deployment. In 2020, Pronoó AG enters into a partnership with the new company ECCO2 Solutions AG, which transfers the technology and processes to industrial series production and takes over sales. This alliance accelerates growth and strengthens the company’s position in the market as a leading manufacturer of “Made in Switzerland” solutions for optimizing building heating systems.

The heated area under contract grows by 150% in the same year while the young team of ECCO2 grows to 17 employees.

A broad-based team of software developers, engineers and energy experts works every day to make the Swiss real estate portfolio more sustainable and to meet the challenges of climate change with smart technology.
