Business Model


Waiting for the hot water in showers and taps is a common experience. Conventional solutions maintain hot water in circulation in the pipes to ensure that water is always hot. This approach leads to significant energy waste due to thermal losses and electrical consumption of the pumps. This waste can represent more than 50% of the whole energy consumed by the water heater in a building. Hoterway stores energy locally to instantly heat the water in pipes in the next utilisation, avoiding the need for continuous re-circulation of hot water.

Target


Speed up negotiation with potential distributors to make a pilot installation in the international market. Implement a strategy to speed up costumer acquisition through the demonstration of the product performance directly in the potential distributors. Define communication strategy in order to highlight the most valuable proposition for each product considering each target.
