    Goals / Remit

    ista is the global leader in the field of energy
    efficiency. With our products and services,
    we help to save energy, cut CO2 emissions
    and reduce costs sustainably.
    Today, ista specialises in the recording, billing,
    visualisation and management of energy, water
    and other ancillary costs in 25 countries all
    over the world. While the respective energy
    utility supplies the total volume of energy and
    water to a multi-family house or commercial
    property, ista records, using modern radio metering
    technology, how this consumption
    breaks down for the individual units in the
    building. Tenants receive their individual
    bills, at the same time landlords receive their
    bill for the total consumption of the building.
    The result: everyone has complete transparency of their individual consumption and only
    pays for what they actually consume.
    As a basis for this, ista uses a portfolio of hardware
    components for recording and processing
    energy data. This portfolio includes radio-
    based heat allocation meters, water
    meters, heat meters as well as the appropriate
    installation systems. ista‘s energy data management
    system is particularly forward-looking.
    Here, all consumption data are visualised
    using smart radio technology on an online
    portal or by app and made available to the
    user every month. In this way, everyone can
    proactively control their own consumption
    and save a significant amount of energy at low
    investment cost.
    The portfolio is rounded off by supplementary
    services such as energy contracting, which
    ista pursues together with strong partners. In
    the field of tenant safety, ista offers products
    and services such as the ista smoke detector or
    the ista drinking water analysis.
    ista can look back on a history of more than
    100 years and today looks after roughly 48
    million devices in over 12 million apartments
