“Nuuka’s software is increasing the value for tenants as well as real estate owners and that is a very attractive proposition. In the energy space, we see that owning industrial and real-estate data is becoming as valuable as conventional energy producing assets. We think that they have the potential to become the worlds first “Virtual Energy Company” in the real estate space and have a pivotal role in providing demand response related services for the global grid. The company is experiencing very rapid growth and we simply believe it is on its way to becoming an international star” says Alexander Lidgren, CEO of Cleantech Invest and continues "One motive behind the listing of Cleantech Invest was the intention to use the shares of Cleantech Invest as payment in M&As, and the share swap with Nuuka is another value adding deal for our shareholders in that sense."
