Bengaluru, India – March, 2017 – The Centre of Recognition and Excellence (CORE Media Group) presented 75F with the ‘HOT 1OO: RACE TO GRACE 2017 Award’ amidst a gathering of eminent CIOs, angel investors, industry stalwarts, VCs, and corporate heads on the 15th of March in Mumbai. The HOT 100 award honours startups providing unique and disruptive technology solutions that work, deliver real benefits, are innovative and potentially address the market at large.
75F was awarded the HOT 100 Award for its HVAC solution ‘Dynamic Airflow BalancingTM”, which is a self-optimizing system that was recently launched in the Indian market. Leveraging Internet of Things (IoT) design philosophy and the power of cloud computing, the 75F solution achieves what was once thought to be only theoretically possible – continuous commissioning or perfect air balancing. Smart algorithms model the thermal envelope of the building and send the optimal control strategy to the building to maximise
energy savings without sacrificing comfort. The predictive thermal model helps in deploying the most efficient HVAC plan every day.
Commenting on receiving the award, Gaurav Burman, VP & Country President, 75F India said, “ We are thrilled to be awarded the HOT 100 Award. We thrive on creating intuitive technology, making an impact and challenging the status quo.
