The Demand Side Network represents approximately 30% of all commercial office buildings in Poland, including The Municipality of Wroclaw, Deka Immobillien, SEB, Invesco, Knight Frank Poland and Skanska.

PODEMON will bring together European clean technology companies focused on the built environment and a group of the leading property owners in Poland. The successful technologies will have access to an unprecedented market opportunity and European leading property owners who are all committed to improving the energy and resource efficiency of their building stock.

“It is the first time that such a large buyer’s network has been brought together in Poland, and I would like to thank all the partners for taking part in this innovative private public partnership. We are delighted to be awarded this project funding which has the potential to significantly boost the commercial office energy efficiency market in Central and Eastern Europe.” Etienne Cadestin, Associate, Knight Frank Energy.

“We are pleased to be part of this project that will give us access to new climate technologies and reduce both our carbon footprint and operational costs in Central and Eastern Europe” Thomas Fiala, Head of Asset Management for Central and Eastern Europe, Invesco Real Estate.
