aedifion as a Company

Why We Care

Buildings are still responsible for around 40% of final consumption This is where we set out to contribute with our cloud platform to making real estate more sustainable and transparent. With our software solutions, we can significantly reduce the energy consumption and CO2 emissions of buildings. To achieve this, we work with state-of-the-art technologies such as artificial intelligence and combine our expertise in the fields of IT and engineering. Together with our customers, we are finally making the building stock sustainable, and are also living this vision in our day-to-day business.

With the focus of our company, we are

open to interfaces

so that other systems, data and applications can be easily integrated and vice versa.


and thus circumvent a vendor lock-in. No matter from which manufacturer the technical building equipment is, we can integrate all vendors.


and are committed to greater sustainability in buildings. In this way, we are part of the energy transition and help to reduce energy consumption and CO2 emissions in buildings with our products.

From Foundation to Innovation Driver

The aedifion-Story

aedifion was founded in 2017 as a spin-off of RWTH Aachen University with the help of the EXIST research transfer program. An interdisciplinary team from the fields of IT, engineering and business administration prepared the basis for long-term success. Even before our foundation, our research work gave us access to years of know-how in the building technology sector, combining state-of-the-art technology from information and engineering sciences and thus supporting the digital transformation of the real estate industry. Meanwhile, we are a large, diverse team that takes care of the secure operation of our cloud platform, the further development of our services and many other services. 

The aedifion Founders

The founders of aedifion Felix Dorner, Dr.-Ing. Johannes Fütterer, Dr. Jan Henrik Ziegeldorf and Erik Brümmendorf set themselves a clear goal at the beginning: As aedifion, they want to actively shape the energy system of the future and make existing buildings and new construction better in a simple way. The necessary digital tools for cloud-based analysis, optimization & control of existing building and energy system technology have been the key to the company's goals and success since its founding. All four founders are particularly concerned about values such as ecological sustainability, a trusting work environment and open, direct and appreciative communication with each other. They work independently and as a team on the various challenges that arise on the way to the big picture. Social interaction is a key factor for mutual success.

Our Value Proposition

What drives us

Our work is our passion. Every day, we work on forward-looking technologies that create real added value and thus want to make the world a little better every day. That's what makes our work:


We live deeptech and work with the latest insights from research and science. We deal with complex technologies on a daily basis and are experts in our field.


We are innovation drivers and are constantly on the lookout for forward-looking trends and technological innovations that will advance our customers. 


Our customers always know where they stand with us. We state clearly what is feasible and promise nothing that we cannot deliver.


We burn for what we do and are never satisfied with the first solution. An enthusiasm that is also felt by our customers.

Scientific Basis for Your Success

We want to actively shape the energy system of the future and drive new innovations. That is why a scientific basis is important to us in our products and our work. As a spin-off of RWTH Aachen University, our roots lie in the Chair of Building and Indoor Climate Technology at RWTH Aachen University. Here we were able to acquire extensive know-how in various research projects and thus created the basis for our company idea. We continue to keep our finger on the pulse and are part of five sovereign research projects in the field of building and energy technology.
