 Project objective

Kindow BV is a spin-off of Delft University of Technology (TUDelft) by bright minds with a passion for sustainable innovation through pragmatic thinking. Sunlight offers the perfect alternative for powering and improving buildings, allowing them to become more energy-efficient and more comfortable to live and work in. The Kindow project enables building managers to save energy and increase comfort by offering intelligent automation for motorized blind systems. It optimizes solar influx with automated positioning of the blinds to save on heating, cooling and lighting. Kindow offers automated integrated solutions that facilitate the transition towards a brighter future with the help of the sun. Kindow seeks to optimize the use of sunlight, in order to create healthy and productive workspaces and improve the energy efficiency of buildings. Kindow optimizes solar influx with automated positioning of the slats of the blinds to save on heating, cooling and artificial lighting resulting in a reduction in energy consumption (up to 25%). Moreover, Kindow provides increased comfort inside the buildings, which leads to increased wellbeing (visual comfort, thermal comfort and access to natural daylight), and a higher productivity (>5% annually). The global smart shade devices market is expected to grow with a CAGR of approximately 90.4% during 2016-2023, reaching €16.7 billion by 2022. Accordingly, we foresee a cumulated profit of 6.1 M€ by 2024 with a ROI of 2.88.
