Cleantech Invest portfolio firm Nuuka Solutions signs agreement with LähiTapiola Real Estate Management
Cleantech Invest portfolio firm Nuuka Solutions has signed an agreement with LähiTapiola Real Estate Asset Management to further improve the innovations in LähiTapiola´s Espoo Campus and Ainoa commercial center in the Espoo region. Cleantech Invest owns 34% of Nuuka.
The Espoo Campus is a 71 500 square meter building with 2 500 data points connected to Nuuka’s Connect and Create platform; and Ainoa 1 is a 17 000 square meter commercial center with 700 data points connected to Nuuka.
The goal of the co-operation is to make LähiTapiola´s buildings even more efficient, sustainable, innovative and great places to work. By utilizing Nuuka’s software LähiTapiola can optimize their air ventilation units in a way that indoor air quality is improved. The HVAC process data from the building automation system can also be used in machine learning models to automate the process optimization. Nuuka helps to optimize the HVAC processes to work as efficiently as possible in the building. This results in better indoor air quality as well as lower energy and operating costs. Additionally, Nuuka’s building automation system integration knowledge plays important role when exploring possibilities to use LähiTapiola’s properties as virtual power plants for the use of demand-side management in the future.
LocalTapiola Real Estate Ltd is engaged in private equity fund management and relating guidance and consultancy. Assets under management are approximately €3 billion.
