By November 20, 2020November 23rd, 2020Haltech Client Spotlight

Haltech is proud to share that Innovia GEO Corp. was named the winner of the IoT PropTech pitch.

Innovia GEO is making geothermal systems less expensive by integrating geothermal functionality into the steel foundation piles that are typically used in building construction. This way, the infrastructure that is already going into the ground can also provide clean and efficient geothermal capacity to meet a building’s heating and cooling needs.

“We’re really excited to present at the IoT Proptech summit to show how we’re using innovative installation methods and smart control systems to make geothermal heating and cooling more accessible and efficient.  While not as well known as solar and wind, geothermal heating and cooling systems are a proven form of clean and efficient renewable energy that can help us change how we heat and cool our buildings and homes” Andrew Lee, President of Innovia GEO Corp.

  1. Three meetings with potential investors/clients set up by Eddy Solutions’ CEO, Travis Allan
