75F has announced it has been selected to take part in Google’s Climate Accelerator program.
Launching in June, the three-month program will grant 75F access to Google’s facilities, engineering and machine learning expertise.
In a release, the firm said that this selection will accelerate the deployment of 75F’s IoT-based building management system to a range of buildings around the world and will help increase energy efficiency, indoor air quality, and comfort in those spaces.
“75F’s innovative approach to machine learning in the commercial buildings space makes them an important fit for the first Google for Startups Accelerator: Climate Change cohort,” said Jason Scott, head of Startup Developer Ecosystems at Google. “We’re looking forward to seeing where Google’s mentorship and expertise will take 75F in its mission to make buildings operate more efficiently and intuitively.”
“Our selection to Google’s climate change accelerator program is an honor and a great asset to the 75F team,” said 75F founder and CEO Deepinder Singh. “We know that our takeaways from this experience will help clear the path to a future in which all commercial buildings have the technology they need to run efficiently and affordably.”
75F noted that the majority of commercial buildings in the U.S. do not have a modern building management system today due to the cost and complexity of traditional solutions. Buildings without smart HVAC and lighting controls lack the ability to optimize and automate energy savings, remotely access or update control sequences, or redirect air based on occupancy or sensor data, the company said.
Through this collaboration with Google, 75F said it will accelerate its delivery of innovative technologies to a wide range of equipment and building types that cannot justify the cost of a traditional controls solution.
75F leverages IoT, cloud computing and machine learning for proactive building intelligence and controls for HVAC and lighting optimization.
