About Us

Sustain and enrich human life with responsive energy intelligence

Our Mission

Our goal is simple - make buildings responsive.
With people spending 92% of their time in buildings, we want to create a world where buildings take care of people, not the other way around. Too often we find ourselves wasting valuable resources resolving building issues, from broken equipments to high energy balances. We want to remove that burden from people with smart technology. This started with us gathering building data and turning them into actionable insights, resulting in a powerful energy management platform. However we’re not stopping there - we’re working hard to make it even more integrated so that buildings become autonomous and responsive to people.
