His Royal Highness the Duke of Kent visited the offices of Infranet Partners UK (13 November) as part of a Royal Visit to Daresbury Science and Innovation Campus in Cheshire.
Calon's Managing Director Tim Sly briefed the Duke on the opportunities for saving energy and reducing CO2 emissions through the use of good lighting and room controls in offices, schools, hotels and public buildings.
The Duke, who is patron of the British Computer Society, was also interested to learn about Stratosphere TM, Calon’s advanced graphical programming tool for intelligent building controls.
“It was a great honour to meet with His Royal Highness and present our range of environmentally friendly energy saving controls “ commented Tim Sly. “The Duke was very knowledgeable about environmental matters and was eager to learn how our advanced controls and software make buildings more energy efficient and lower whole-life cost of ownership.”
Calon Associates design, develop and sell networked intelligent controls for lighting and room comfort under the ‘Infranet Partners’ brand.
