Thematic field:

Smart and Efficient Buildings and Cities

Market segment:

Heating & Cooling, Non-residential building, Residential building

The start-up

Hoterway is a standalone device that instantly heats the water that cools down in distribution pipes when it is not used. This avoids continuous recirculation, which is responsible for more than 50% of the energy consumed in the boiler. It also avoids the water wasted while waiting for the heated water to reach the point of use.

The need

Hot water distribution systems in buildings have a problem related to the response time of the hot water in the distribution network, and conventional solutions limit energy and water efficiency significantly.

The solution

Hoterway is a standalone device that corrects the response time of the hot water distribution systems passively, saving the energy that would otherwise be wasted in recirculating circuits, and saving the water usually wasted while waiting for it to heat

The value proposition

  • Average saving of 30% on the global energy spent on water heating.
  • Avoid the utilisation of recirculating circuits.
  • Increase comfort and saving for users.
  • Reduction of water and energy consumption.
