After a year of strong growth in the number of buildings using their software for managing energy, indoor air and sustainability over the last year, Nuuka has started planning for Chinese market entry. In addition to Chinese market entry, Nuuka recently started targeting the real estate markets in Belgium and the Netherlands where it has now 22 buildings connected to Nuuka in partnership with Sweco.
In China Nuuka will be working with well known energy efficiency company Zhejiang Zhongrui Low-carbon Technology Ltd to improve the energy efficiency, indoor air and sustainability of major Chinese commercial buildings. Finnish funding agency Tekes is providing Nuuka with a grant to grow its business in China.

We have received very positive market feedback from our local partners and now with the support from Tekes, we can start systematic efforts to grow our business in this huge market. It means a lot to have a role in helping the Chinese building industry become more energy efficient and more sustainable and at the same time help our customers to save costs and improve indoor air conditions."

Nuuka’s biggest owner Cleantech Invest CEO Alexander Lidgren comments: “The market for managing energy, indoor air and sustainability in buildings is still largely untapped worldwide. Nuuka brings this data from the cellar to the real estate managers desks in real time and empowers users to see how their space is performing when it comes to air quality and energy.
