If Google NEST is the leader in smart home technology, then Kontrol Energy (KNR:CSE) is the small cap equivalent for smart building technology. More than just lip service, their established Blue Chip customer base includes:
Brookfield Asset Management
….. Many More
Moreover, they've signed a major deal wth Toyota (Tsusho Canada), targeting 200 plants requiring up to $1 million each in automation retrofits.
CONCLUSION? When Kontrol Energy says they are entering a 4-week testing phase - with an independent lab - to determine if their technology can detect COVID-19 in the air of big buildings, you need to take the news seriously. You know who else took it seriously? The National Research Council, who granted Kontrol $50,000 to conduct the test. The amount may seem small but that's because KNR has already done most of the leg work already and is now in the final 4-week testing phase.
If successful, the implications could be enormous for their Tier-1 client base, as well as, all commercial buildings, government buildings, schools and other big essential locations that need to find a way to start bringing people back. In short, Kontrol Energy's BioCloud Analyzer could have a major impact on the North American economy.
