Arman Mottaghi, MSc

CEO, Properate

Fighting the prevailing myth in the building industry that embedding energy efficiency into construction and renovation projects is more expensive, Arman’s technology is helping contractors and building owners go “green” and save money, suggesting energy efficiency upgrades to consumers that can make homes healthier, more durable, and more climate-friendly. Simplified, “Properate” is able to assess and improve the energy efficiency of a home by creating an “energy model” extracted from basic geographic and public information, that then identifies potential energy upgrades that are personalized to the home. This technology has made recommendations on over 1400 projects, producing an estimated average emission reduction of 6.13 tonnes of GHG per year per home.
