This month the first edition of the BTA Demand Side Network (DSN) Competition takes place at the BTA Living Lab Concept House Village in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
The DSN Competition is a ‘Dragons Den’ style event that matches innovative low-carbon building technologies with investors and adaptors, and is organised by the Climate-KIC flagship Building Technologies Accelerator (BTA) together with global property consultancy firm Knight Frank.
Participating in this event gives the buyers and investors the opportunity to be the first to know and adopt the latest clean building innovations. Simultaneously, the creators of sustainable building technologies get the chance to pitch their innovation to a panel of leading international firms from the construction industry.
