As facility managers take steps to reopen their buildings amidst an ongoing pandemic, most already know about expert-recommended HVAC control sequences to reduce the spread of COVID-19 indoors.
75F’s second session in the Healthier Buildings webcast series covers the energy efficiency implications of COVID-19 indoor mitigation strategies and offers viewers guidance on saving energy where possible under these extreme conditions.
75F’s Healthier Buildings webcast series exists to help the proactive building owner, facility manager, and installer understand how to make their indoor environment safer for occupancy during an ongoing pandemic.
Clean Energy Trust (a nonprofit cleantech accelerator) announced to a sold-out crowd at their Co_Invest Cleantech event in Chicago yesterday that 75F had taken home the largest investment for their building control solutions delivering operational efficiencies, improved productivity and optimal occupant experiences. 75F is one of four new portfolio companies (and the only MN-based company) selected from over 100 applicants; and, the crowd of attendees voted 75F as the People’s Choice.
Clean Energy Trust (CET) awarded 75F with at total of $270,000, representing the largest of four investments in new companies, totaling $700,000. The CO_INVEST Cleantech event brings entrepreneurs, investors, executives, and students together for a day celebrating a shared belief in the power of entrepreneurs to take on the hardest challenges to sustainable life on the planet. The 75F presentation went over so well, the crowd voted 75F the People's Choice winner, adding $20,000 investment to the already allocated $250,000. The people have spoken!
So why did 75F take home the top prize?
