Introducing BERWOW-Home (aka BERWOW) – the most advanced domestic retrofit app in the world.
Based on three years R&D, and leveraging the niche expertise in Building Energy certification and cloud hosted technology and AI of its founders, BERWOW was launched in Ireland in August 2020. The product first went live on the SSE Airtricity and An Post websites, guiding homeowners through the home retrofit options available.
BERWOW is a cloud-based technology platform developed to provide retrofit dashboards and calculators to homeowners. It uses BER/ EPC certificate data to produce a list of energy upgrades options for houses and apartments. If the homeowner has a BER cert, and enters their certificate number or MPRN, BERWOW will retrieve their BER data file from the national BER database. It then checks all current conditions, (e.g. levels of roof insulation, wall insulation etc.) and then recommends best practice upgrade measures. The User can select and deselect measures or choose from the options provided to plan their own retrofit project. BERWOW provides typical industry average cost of works. If homeowners do not have a BER certificate, they can select from 50 building typologies where they should generally find a dwelling type similar to theirs.
The homeowner, now well informed, can book a home-survey to start on the road to retrofitting their home. BERWOW also calculates the grants available, energy partner incentives, a financial dashboard, a CO2 storyboard and mapped locational BER indicators.
Currently BERWOW is available under a licence arrangement to energy partners and retrofit companies active in the energy retrofit market in Ireland. BERWOW can be embedded and branded on the Energy Partner’s website and integrated with the Partner’s CRM system.
Following on from our success with BERWOW-Home, the company is currently developing the next BERWOW tool and continuing our goal to reduce global climate change through making retrofit projects more accessible.
BERWOW Ltd. was formed in Dublin, Ireland in 2017 with a mission to disrupt the building energy rating process through the use of smart technology and AI. The company’s first product is BERWOW-Home, an online tool to guide homeowners through the options, costs and benefits from different retrofit home improvement decisions.
