Energy management technology specialist Quintex Systems has joined the Energy and Environment Alliance (EEA), which aims to help accommodation businesses save energy and reduce carbon emissions in commercial kitchens.
This move allows Quintex’s patented Cheetah demand controlled kitchen ventilation system to be made widely available to EEA members.
The system includes the installation of a network of smart sensors into kitchen canopies/hoods. This technology should ensure cooking activity is continuously monitored and the speed of both the extract and air supply is controlled to meet the required conditions. With this system, energy cost savings can offer payback on the initial investment in under 2years.
Ufi Ibrahim, CEO of EEA said: “Commercial kitchens can be highly pressurised environments with all hands-on deck focused on customer service. We at the EEA are delighted to announce the partnership with Quintex to bring innovative automation that will reduce energy usage, cut carbon emissions and save cost, without adding any additional burden on the teams servicing commercial kitchens.
“The EEA strives to identify the behaviour and technology changes needed to decarbonise the hospitality industry. Such technology is critical and should be adopted where possible and relevant.”
Emma Brooks, MD of Quintex said: “We are delighted to be part of the EEA and look forward to supporting the EEA Technical Forum. Through the forum we aim to gather market intelligence, to identify trends that allow us to expand on the innovation in the technological and commercial solutions we create.
“This partnership will not only be great for us, but the industry as a whole as we all push forward to reach our 2050 goals.”
