KIC InnoEnergy believes in ColdShift for 3 reasons:
- First of all, the market opportunity to use the storage capacity of cooling cabinets for energy cost reduction and grid flexibility is BIG
- Moreover, with its advanced algorithm ColdShift is the first company in Europe that has proven a 10% energy cost reduction in an actual supermarket.
- Finally, Saint Trofee has expert knowledge in supermarket cooling, whereas other start-ups still try to figure out a working solution from scratch. Saint Trofee builds on years of research, knowledge, network and experience.
