What We Do
Nowadays, energy costs of hotels and offices represent between 20 to 30% of the total operational cost, and these numbers are projected to rise in the next years. Moreover, it is increasingly important for companies to follow sustainable practices and ensure their facilities run in the most efficient, environmentally friendly way. Therefore, more and more companies are investing in energy management tools that optimize the energy use in their facilities.
eQualtiq is a Software-as-service (SaaS) provider that offers a suite of apps to reduce the energy costs of commercial buildings by fine-tuning the HVAC system operation while ensuring the tenant’s comfort. Additionally, eQualtiq tools have the ability to simplify and optimize the power purchasing procedure of a building. Implementation of the full solution leads to a target 20-25% electricity cost reduction for the building.
Founded in 2016, eQualtiq company is the outcome of the european R&D project BEEST, supported by KIC InnoEnergy and a partnership between Comsa Coroporación, Enervalis, DEXMA, Tecnalia and EnergyVille, that together have over 100 years of experience in energy efficiency in buildings. Currently, eQualtiq is a company owned by two of the consortium partners: Comsa Industrial and Enervalis.
