Telkonet SmartEnergy and Telkonet, Inc.(AMEX: TKO)Telkonet SmartEnergy (TSE) is an intelligent, occupancy-driven in-room energy management system, providing an economic, green approach to controlling HVAC usage and improving energy efficiency. It incorporates a patented technology – Recovery Time™ (RT) that performs constant real-time calculations to adjust and maintain a room’s temperature based on occupancy. Unlike conventional fixed-setback systems, where the temperature is often forced to one fixed temperature in all rooms, RT takes into account a diverse range of factors to determine each room’s energy efficient temperature, restoring the temperature to the users’ desired comfort setting within minutes of returning to a room. TSE has been proven to deliver a rapid return on investment, often achieving quantifiable savings of approximately 30% by eliminating the wasteful heating and cooling of unoccupied rooms. Operating on an individual room-by-room basis, the system uses a combination of occupancy sensors, along with intelligent programmable thermostats or PTAC controllers, underpinned by RT’s unique functionality that ensures rooms are never excessively hot or cold when an occupant returns to the room.
