Last month we were delighted to secure a place on Scottish Development International’s (SDI) first energy systems focused trade mission to New York City.
This was a significant opportunity and learning journey which enabled us to engage with key industry bodies, utility companies, government bodies and potential partners. As our plans are to export to the US market, the trade mission allowed us to build our knowledge and understand the opportunities that are available in the state of New York.
During the week trade mission, we had a number of successful meetings with JLL, Adobe and TH Real Estate. It was also a great opportunity to demonstrate our arbn well software solution, used to monitor indoor air quality for health and productivity.
Co-founder and chairman of arbnco, Maureen Eisbrenner, said: “The trade mission is an exciting opportunity for us. We have targeted Ireland and the USA as the first two countries to export to and hope to establish a US office within the next twelve months.
New York State is undergoing a huge energy transformation programme and we feel we can play a part in this, given our expertise in energy efficiency and energy modelling.”
Ewen Cameron, head of trade, investment and energy at SDI , said: “The USA is an extremely important market for Scotland. There is significant potential for Scottish organisations to contribute towards New York State’s reforming energy vision.”
