      • AXA becomes the first insurance company to offer BERWOW calculator to homeowners in Ireland.
      • Provides a quick and easy way for homeowners to identify retrofit options that reduce CO2 emissions.
      • Gamma also has successful partnerships with SSE Airtricity and An Post in place.

Gamma, the Irish technology company, has recently announced that it has signed a contract with AXA, one of Ireland’s leading insurance companies to support AXA’s new Go Green web platform.

The platform is designed to help homeowners in the Republic of Ireland to create a more sustainable and comfortable home, reduce their carbon footprint and save on energy bills. It offers a wealth of information for home improvements and helps streamline the research process for homeowners, saving them time and hassle.

Together, AXA and Gamma have enhanced Gamma’s existing BERWOW platform to provide a seamless and visually consistent user experience. The platform generates tailored retrofit suggestions based on an individual property’s energy rating and physical characteristics.

Homeowners can effortlessly access energy retrofit recommendations using their own BER information by entering their Meter Point Reference Number (MPRN), or by selecting their house type from over 50 classifications. The web-based tool aims to educate homeowners about the financial and comfort benefits associated with retrofit investment.

In addition to the collaboration with AXA, Gamma also has successful partnerships with SSE Airtricity and An Post in place. Over the coming years, the company aims to further grow its customer base and expand into international markets.

Feargal O’Neill, CEO, Gamma, said: “We are thrilled to join forces with AXA and bring our BERWOW technology to their customers. This collaboration is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our team in developing an innovative solution that is already enabling homeowners across Ireland to identify, plan and carry out retrofit projects.”

“As we continue to expand our reach, we remain committed to helping homeowners make informed decisions on energy efficiency upgrades, ultimately contributing to a greener, more sustainable future.”

Michael Hanratty, BERWOW CEO, said: “Our goal is to create a one-stop retrofitting shop for the Irish homeowner and transform the industry. In order to do this, we have to work with leaders and the fact that companies of AXA’s calibre are associated with our technology is a great endorsement.

Ben Deans, Chief Innovation and Strategy Officer at AXA in Ireland, added, “Our aim is to provide our customers with protection and peace of mind. That’s where Go Green comes in – it will help future proof customer homes, reduce reliance on electricity and gas and save on energy bills. This new offering supported by Gamma aligns with our strategic focus to ‘protect more of what matters’ and adds to a host of existing initiatives focused on sustainability and climate action.”
