Drafty window or door? Now it can be seen from space! Portfolio company Satellite Vu featured in the Guardian on Sunday.
Satellite Vu will announce that the first of its heat- sensing satellites is to be launched early next year on a #falcon9 rocket, the launcher operated by SpaceX.
Satellite Vu’s hot data will show how homes, offices and cities can become more energy efficient using space data. The aim of Satellite Vu’s programme is to create a fleet of probes that will be able to carry out a constant, worldwide survey measuring heat emanating from buildings. This will be achieved using high-definition infrared radiation detectors that will show where buildings are leaking significant levels of energy, and which are wasting power.
"Our satellites are going to be fitted with unique infrared cameras that can measure heat emissions from any building on the planet." said Anthony Baker, Satellite Vu’s chief executive
