Enervee and CleanTechnica Announce Energy Efficient Shopping Channel with Real Time Appliance Efficiency Comparisons
Energy-smart scoring platform, Enervee, makes eco-conscious shopping easy for CleanTechnica readers
Santa Monica, CA - Oct. 25, 2013
Enervee®, the world’s first energy-smart data and commerce platform, and CleanTechnica, the most visited clean technology website globally, today announce their official partnership, providing eco-conscious consumers with a channel to evaluate the efficiency of products in a brand new way. Enervee’s service is the first to allow consumers to easily compare the purchase cost and energy cost of an appliance in one place.
The new CleanTechnica shopping channel powered by Enervee incorporates real time product scoring for a true and total cost comparison for consumers looking to purchase an energy efficient appliance. Prior to the launch of this shopping channel, consumers looking to reduce their carbon footprint and lower personal energy consumption were limited to manual research with resources such as Energy Star and EnergyGuide, which share stagnant energy ratings.
Enervee’s real time data is centered around a simple but all encompassing efficiency rating called an Enervee Score. On the CleanTechnica shopping channel, the Enervee Score sits alongside other crucial information needed to truly compare products during the buying process: an eco impact estimate, the initial purchase price and an energy cost estimate that can be fully customized based on the users location or average product use time. The Enervee Score is updated daily and seamlessly integrated with the product listing, meaning shoppers can sort and filter products based on comparable features such as specific size, capacity or product cost while shopping.
“Enervee’s highly-differentiated energy-efficiency product data is a perfect fit for our eco-conscious readers who care about how their purchases affect the world around them and also love the idea of saving money,” said Scott Cooney, CEO of the Important Media Network, a new media company that includes CleanTechnica and many other sites dedicated to sustainability and health. “With our new shopping channel, our readers will have the information they need to save a significant amount of money over time and energy in their home.”
“Enervee’s data and service is designed to be easily embedded on any online shopping comparison site or mobile app,” said Matthias Kurwig, founder and CEO of Enervee. “We’re thrilled to have quickly integrated our data with the CleanTechnica site so they can not only offer a completely unique service to their readers, but garner increased user engagement and organic search rankings as a result.”
Enervee® is the world's first energy smart scoring platform. The Enervee Score makes it easy for consumers, businesses and governments to purchase appliances and electronics that save energy, save money and help our planet. Two friends, Matthias Kurwig and Don Epperson, founded Enervee in the summer of 2010 while both were planning to buy energy efficient appliances for their new homes. That simple task turned out to be very challenging, as it required searching through 18 different data sources to be able to truly compare the energy efficiency of TVs, refrigerators, washing machines, and other household electronics and appliances. This began a quest to create a platform that could automatically rank products based on their energy efficiency - the outcome of which was the Enervee Score. Enervee has a simple mission - to make it easier for you to find the products that save energy, save you money and help the planet.
