Intelligent home climate company tado° has announced a large investment of €38 million into the development and distribution new energy-efficient proptech solutions for the commercial housing market.
The investment comes as a result of a partnership with climate smart real estate company noventic.
The investment will also be used to drive technologies for sustainable heat generation, OEM solutions for heating and cooling manufacturers, and for expanding into new markets.
The commercial housing market is set for digitisation and consists of over 50 million homes in Europe, which are managed by real estate companies and municipalities. The European Green Deal is putting political pressure on the sector to digitally transform and to manage its energy consumption significantly more efficiently through new technology. Real estate companies are adopting innovation faster than ever. Up to 81% of real estate organisations plan to use new digital technologies in traditional business processes and spending on tech and software is continuously growing.
“The partnership with noventic will kickstart new proptech solutions for the commercial housing market and we’re thrilled to be partnering with noventic who have a wealth of experience in this sector,” says tado° chief executive Toon Bouten. “As a leader in intelligent home climate management, tado° is in an excellent position to bring our energy-efficient solutions to this rapidly-transforming market.”
“Against the background of the European climate targets, we want to bring together consumption data with smart consumption control to provide even better support to the professional housing industry in the implementation of their energy saving strategies in residential quarters,” says noventic managing director Dirk Then. noventic CFO Stephan Bause adds: “With this strategic investment, we are expanding our solution portfolio together with tado° to include a market- leading home climate control technology.”
Through the partnership, tado° and noventic will offer new and better energy efficiency and digitalisation solutions to a huge new market of multi-family homes and commercial buildings. At the same time tado° will continue to drive its consumer business, and solutions business for utilities and heating service companies.
