Clean Energy Week's 5th edition took place in Boston, MA. It was organized by the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (MassCEC), the Massachusetts Technology Transfer Center and the Massachusetts Hydrogen Coalition. Modebo® was the only Mexican company invited in this event, in which it presented its Business Plan in front of investors to promote the agenda of "Building towards energy efficiency in Mexico", along with high-tech companies from Israel and France. Not only did it open new opportunities to attract business capital, but continues to open new business negotiations with U.S. companies to establish business links and technology transfer. On the other hand it was also possible a collaboration with projects developed by the MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) in technologies for energy efficiency in buildings. The last event thus becomes the top of the hill to drive the technology we have developed internationally.
In the XXIII edition of CIHAC Expo, the largest construction sector exhibition in Latin America, the first Eco CIHAC Award was presented. This award recognizes the best practices in innovations and sustainable technology, to encourage and promote the participation of the designer or company that develops and markets these products and technologies. The company awarded with the highest medal was COMEX, but other companies were also recognized in different areas, such as: CATO Cerámica, LEVITON, Mosaicos Venecianos, Modebo®, Helvex and Mabe. Modebo® was the winner of the Operations and Maintenance category for our system: "Energy and resource efficiency in building and industry", through the development of thermal behavior diagnostics with high-tech in real-time.
Modebo® received an invitation from the British Embassy in Mexico to be part of the Mexican delegation to attend the exhibition of "Resource efficiency and Waste Management" held in the city of Birmingham, UK, last September. This exhibition is the largest of its kind in Northern Europe, and Modebo® was one of the Mexican companies that had representation in the European country, opening channels of negotioation with the British market and with expansion areas in the Indian market, too.
