We are delighted to announce that eTRV+ by Chalmor has been selected by the Royal Bank of Scotland to be trialled on their estate as part of the RBS Innovation Gateway.
RBS launched the Innovation Gateway in March this year with the aims of improving energy efficiency across their estate of 2,500 buildings and of supporting SME innovators.
The Innovation Gateway received 140 UK and international submissions, which were shortlisted to 26 for the 10th of November finalist day in London. The day kicked off with a product fair, followed by Dragon’s Den style pitches and in the evening, a dinner with winner announcements hosted by RBS Deputy CEO, Chris Sullivan. Chalmor’s eTRV+ was announced a winner, along with 15 other concept and market ready innovations.
eTRV+ is an energy saving heating device which fits to radiators, enabling room by room heating control. eTRV+ has been proven to provide up to 30% energy savings, by automatically only heating the rooms you are using and preventing overheating. It is suitable for any building with a radiator system, its flexibility making eTRV+ an ideal choice to suit RBS’ broad and varied estate.
Chalmor MD, Steven Henry reflects “This whole process has encouraged us to think big, the judges provided feedback that added perspective and helped us refine the eTRV+ messaging. A great deal of work went in, culminating in Monday’s product fair, pitches and dinner, all of which provided us with an excellent showcase and an opportunity to build relationships with RBS, the other innovators and representatives from a wide range of industries. We are delighted to have been chosen and look forward to the next steps, trialling with the RBS estate and their partners”.
