CleanTechnica & Enervee Team Up To Offer Best Energy Efficient Appliance Shopping Channel Around (Real-Time Appliance Efficiency Comparisons)
October 30th, 2013 by Zachary Shahan
Below is a press release from Enervee about our partnership with this very promising startup. However, before sharing that, I’ll just say that I am completely thrilled about this partnership and about what Enervee is offering. Every time I am on the market for an energy-efficient appliance or electronic device, I am surprised at how hard it is to find any half-decent and up-to-date rankings. It is disheartening, it makes shopping more time-consuming, and it makes shopping less fun. Through years of development, Enervee has created a truly awesome and useful comparison platform that lets you quickly search through appliances or electronics in order to find a highly efficient one that matches what you are able and willing to pay up front and will save you the most money and energy down the road. The platform is working obsessively behind the scenes to continuously deliver real-time results. I’m very happy that CleanTechnica is one of Enervee’s first partners, and I’m very happy to offer this useful service to our readers! Check out our new TV, refrigerator, washing machine, and dryer shopping channel and the press release below for more info.
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 user’s 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.
