Setting new standards with predictive building control.
- Our vision
- Our mission
“The future needs a net carbon-free society”
Natural resources are limited, and climate change mitigation imposes clear goals for worldwide CO2 emission reduction by 2050. Energy efficiency will play a crucial role in meeting the short-term goals because global emissions are still growing despite our efforts to replace fossil fuels with renewable sources.
A transition is required in all domains and layers of our society. This transition incentivises radical innovation, the spark for positive change. Shifting towards a carbon-free society is an opportunity to stimulate our economy and create more social equality.
Energy use in buildings is a crucial contributor to global CO2 emissions. Even in new and modern buildings, inadequate control and operation often increase energy use by 20%. DeltaQ has developed predictive control algorithms that drastically change how buildings operate. Our innovative solutions improve thermal comfort for the occupants, create control transparency for operators and allow buildings to interact flexibly with the grid. We know the means and commitment to set new standards for building performance.
We aim to make our technology widely available and contribute to the energy transition, with a win-win for all stakeholders. DeltaQ wants to make a difference.
