Kiko Water Systems wins 2017 CaGBC Product of the Year

JUNE 1, 2017 – Kiko Water Systems was awarded the Canadian Green Building Council’s Product of the Year at the Building Lasting Change 2017 Gala Dinner in Vancouver, B.C.

“I’d like to congratulate Kiko Water Systems on winning the 2017 CaGBC Green Building Product of the Year Award,” says Thomas Mueller, President and CEO of the CaGBC. “With their water systems cartridges, Kiko has designed a truly innovative green product that ties into existing building HVAC systems. Creative products like this are an example of business transforming the industry by offering not only an innovative solution for the reduction of energy consumption and carbon emissions but also costs for buildings owners.”

“We are honoured that Kiko Water Systems has won the CaGBC 2017 Product of the Year Award,” says Jeff Addison, Managing Director, Kiko Water Systems. “Not only did the CaGBC acknowledge the dramatic results that we have been able to achieve in HVAC energy reduction, they also recognized the importance of how we deliver our technology. Since we started, our mission has been to provide clients with an easy, effective way to reduce GHG emissions, extend equipment lifespans, lower operating costs and monitor equipment performance without disruption. By being recognized by the CaGBC, we are able to further our mission and create a more sustainable future. Thank you to CaGBC for this recognition.”

Product submissions were assessed based on four key areas: sustainability, transparency and verification, innovation, and application. Kiko’s Water System Cartridges was chosen by the jury because of their ability to reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions at a minimal capital expense and disruption to the owner, along with a short payback period. The product’s applicability was also noted, with the ability to be implemented in a broad spectrum of building types including new and existing buildings.

As a nanotechnology that is green and not chemical, Kiko Water Systems Cartridges makes all water based HVAC equipment operate more efficiently. Not only are buildings with their technology installed saving an average of over 20 per cent of their HVAC energy consumption, using Kiko Water Systems allows building equipment to not work as hard, which reduces maintenance costs and extends equipment lifespan. Kiko has installed their proprietary technology in thousands of HVAC systems spanning millions of square feet, and boasts a 100 per cent success rate for reducing energy consumption. This has led to drastic GHG emissions reductions in large commercial, residential and hotel towers since 2013.

“UL Environment is pleased to once again sponsor the CaGBC’s Green Building Product of the year competition,” says Joe Hosey, General Manager at UL Canada. “Through our continued support of this program we are recognizing innovative Canadian-made sustainable products, and supporting access to sustainable product choices.”

KIKO WATER SYSTEMS HONOURED AS TOP 15 SUSTAINABILITY PROJECT IN CANADA

Sept. 20, 2016 – Toronto, Ontario: Kiko Water Systems (KWS), a clean energy company with proprietary HVAC nanotechnology, has been announced as a recipient of Canada’s Clean50 Top 15 Projects Award for 2017 from Delta Management Group, for its HVAC Loop Efficiency work at the Four Seasons Hotel, Vancouver. KWS is receiving this award alongside fellow Honourees including Cadillac Fairview, General Motors of Canada, and the City of Vancouver.

The Four Seasons Hotel, Vancouver is always looking to find new and creative ways to reduce costs and lower energy consumption and carbon emissions. As an operating 5 star hotel, any energy reduction measures undertaken would have to achieve significant results while keeping costs and guest disruptions to a minimum. Previous sustainability measures that were presented to the Hotel required large capital expenditures and long payback periods. Fortunately, they kept looking, and discovered KWS.

KWS’s revolutionary nanotechnology improves the efficiency at which boilers and chillers operate, by lowering the specific heat capacity and surface tension of the water. Readily installed without disruption, the project resulted in a number of remarkable results in the first 27 months of operation: 19% Overall HVAC Energy Savings, 6,090,943 Lbs. of Steam Saved, 622,193 kWh of electricity saved and 376 Tons of GHG’s saved. And the Hotel saved $157,000 without any upfront costs. Other benefits are that the system response time is significantly improved, allowing the HVAC to respond to guest demands much more rapidly, and the demands on the equipment significantly less, reducing wear, maintenance and extending lifespan. Needless to say, Four Seasons is now deploying the technology elsewhere in the chain.

Canada’s Clean50 Top Project Awards (Clean50) are announced annually by Delta Management Group and the Clean50 organization to recognize those 15 sustainability oriented projects which have done the most to advance the cause of sustainability and clean capitalism in Canada over the past 2 years.

”Delta’s criteria in determining Honourees is to carefully consider actual measurable accomplishments, demonstrated innovation, collaboration with other organizations, and the power of the project contribution to inspire other Canadians to take similar action. The HVAC Efficiency Improvements project was chosen after rigourous screening and research by Delta Management, with advice from internal researchers and external advisors, and was among the Top 15 Projects selected from a large initial pool of well qualified nominees,” announced Gavin Pitchford, CEO, Delta Management Group.

Kiko Water Systems Partners with Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver to Reduce Energy Consumption by 20%

March 4, 2015 – Kiko Water Systems (“KWS”), a clean energy company headquartered in Vancouver, BC, has partnered with the Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver and their Director of Engineering, Priyan Jayetileke, to use KWS’s proprietary technology to drastically reduce HVAC energy consumption and improve system efficiencies at the Hotel by over 20% per year. As a result of installing KWS Cartridges into the HVAC system in January, 2014, the Hotel realized savings of over 500,000 kWh, 3.2 Million pounds of steam and a reduction of 195 metric tons of Greenhouse Gases – all in just over 1 year and without capital costs! This equates to taking over 41 cars per year off of the road or planting 5,000 tree seedlings grown for 10 years.

KWS’s proprietary technology works in both open and closed HVAC water loops by releasing kinetic energy that works at the molecular level to change the harmonics of water. The resulting change reduces the surface tension of water and improves heat capacity and thermal transfer of water. After KWS Cartridges were installed into the system at the Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver, the heating and cooling equipment required drastically less energy and less maintenance to perform the same heating or cooling task, and overall, the system performed more efficiently.

Kiko Water Systems requires no capital costs and is providing the Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver with a successful and profitable energy savings solution.

The Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver was recently named as a recipient of the prestigious Forbes Five-Star Rating as a top pick for luxury hotels, restaurants and spas and is among only four Canadian hotels receiving this highly esteemed nod of approval. This comes in addition to the hotel already being an industry leader in sustainability, achieving 5 Green Keys – the highest possible rating for hotels that exemplify environmental and social stewardship.
