Vénissieux, May 20, 2019
BOOSTHEAT was presented with the Tech For Good Award in the “Responsible Consumption” category at a ceremony held on Thursday, May 16 at the Eiffel Tower in Paris. The award constitutes major recognition for the company, which aims to allow every citizen to dramatically reduce their carbon footprint with its cutting-edge, energy-efficient and sustainable BOOSTHEAT.20 boiler.
Organized by BFM Business in partnership with France Digitale, the first ever Tech For Good Awards rewarded six start-up candidates for inclusion in the Next 40, an index set up in May 2018 by the former Secretary of State for Digital Affairs, Mounir Mahjoubi, to support 40 ultra-high potential French companies. These start-ups, which harness technology and innovation for the common good, are distinguished by their commitment to building a more responsible society. Awards were presented in several categories: Healthcare, Digital Access, Circular Economy, Responsible Consumption, Sustainable Resources and Active Citizenship. BOOSTHEAT received the Tech For Good Award in the “Responsible Consumption” category.
The Tech For Good Awards jury, which included France Digitale joint chairman and Blablacar founding chairman Frédéric Mazzella, Leetchi CEO Alix Poulet and LITA.co co-founder and chairwoman Eva Sadoun, were unanimous in choosing BOOSTHEAT. Arkéa CEO Ronan Le Moal, who presented the award, said: “The adventure is quite extraordinary, as it encompasses successful French technology, environmental impact and the revival of a manufacturing plant.”
BOOSTHEAT CEO and co-founder Luc Jacquet added: “We are very proud to receive the Tech For Good Award. It highlights the qualities of our product and, first and foremost, our ambition to give all consumers the chance to contribute towards the new energy era by providing them with an optimal heating solution.”
THE MOST ENERGY-EFFICIENT BOILER IN THE WORLD1
BOOSTHEAT.20 is born into a world in which global greenhouse gas emissions must be reduced by at least 45% between 2010 and 2030 in order to limit global warming to 1.5°C2, and where there is a strong need to replace heating systems due to their age and energy consumption.
BOOSTHEAT.20 is a heating solution that combines state-of-the-art heat pump and condensing boiler technology via the BOOSTHEAT thermal compressor (patented innovation).
> Energy-efficient: BOOSTHEAT.20 consumes up to half as much energy and reduces CO2 emissions by the same amount, using a natural, non-polluting refrigerant (CO2).
> Sustainable: BOOSTHEAT.20 carries a 10-year warranty covering parts and labor3. Its patented technology, the thermal compressor, is frictionless making it virtually wear-free.
> Self-financed: The price of BOOSTHEAT.20 is recuperated via the savings it generates.
BOOSTHEAT is a strong ambassador for the French Fab label thanks to a boiler designed, developed and produced in France at its manufacturing plant in Vénissieux. The company also encourages partnerships and component sourcing in the local region, nationwide and across Europe. This ambition is bolstered by its geographical location, as the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region is a vibrant hub for the HVAC4 industry.
