QED Connect’s Partner, Sofame, Gains Technology Recognition Through U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Initiative

QED Connect, Inc. (OTC:QEDN.ob

News), a New York corporation (“QED Connect”), today announced that its partner in Sofame Energy, Sofame Technologies Inc. (“SofameTechnologies”) (TSXV: SDW), sees a growing demand for its award-winning industrial heat reclaim systems and ultra-efficient water heating technologies.   The Sofame Percotherm®’s performance metrics, in its managements’ opinion, are among the best in the industry, offering more than 95% gas-to-hot-water efficiency, condensation technology and 140 degrees F leaving water temperature.

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has recognized the new worldwide standard to help organizations save money in commercial and industrial facilities by using less energy.  Sofame management contends that even before the DOE judged it consistent with U.S. energy policy and strategy, American interest in ISO 50001 was growing steadily.  Sofame Energy’s product line developed over the last twenty years enables companies and institutions to meet this trend.

In other moves to encourage adoption of energy efficient equipment, the DOE is developing and disseminating a portfolio of energy-management resources to help facilities implement ISO 50001.  The DOE’s Industrial Technologies Program and Building Technologies Program are supporting implementation of ISO 50001 through Superior Energy Performance, a voluntary certification program that is expected to launch for industry in 2012 and later expand to commercial buildings. The implementation of ISO 50001 is also being coordinated through the DOE’s Federal Energy Management Program and Clean Energy Ministerial, a global forum accelerating the transition to clean energy technologies including those offered by Sofame Energy, Inc.

According to Tom Makmann, QED’s President and CEO, “Multiple regulations affecting boilers such as ASHRAE Standards 155P relating to heating system and boiler efficiency and 90.1-2010 relating to building energy efficiency, are raising the bar, and this favors Sofame’s industrial Percomax® and Percotherm® water heaters.  ISO 50001 is a global benchmark that Sofame’s equipment can easily meet and exceed.  Sofame, to our understanding,  is currently finalizing several contracts with major companies and universities and expects, but cannot guarantee, to realize several million in orders over the next 6 months.”
