FortyGuard: Proprietary Analytics Enabling Effective Cooling for Cities
With its mission to cool cities, FortyGuard is engaged in providing access to enriched temperature insights for dynamic and personalized visuals. They claim to be “outdoor temperature experts with AI tools to optimize energy & enhance the environment, and passive data access to granular mapping solutions.”
The company envisions contributing to targets in keeping temperatures below 1.5°C, not because accurate temperature readings can physically cool the ambient, but because they can empower and enable solutions to do so. Most of the world’s energy consumption goes towards cooling residential buildings and communities’ common areas, resulting in a significant carbon footprint primarily when sourced by traditional sources of energy.
