Analytics Platform for Improving Energy Efficiency in Buildings

Ecova’s efficiency analysis platform combines two stages of assessment. Firstly, the virtual energy assessment ranks multiple buildings in a property portfolio by their energy savings potential, and identifies unique operational and retrofit opportunities in minutes per building. Then, using the ‘Efficiency Track’, utilities and property managers can implement innovative programs to reduce energy consumption, track energy savings and receive updates when new technology could help to cut energy consumption further. This allows for a reliable, low-cost approach to verifying whole building savings from retrofit, operational, or behavioral changes.

Why you should care

Buildings account for over 40% of global energy consumed and 30 to 50% of that energy is routinely wasted, according to the company. Thus, buildings are a leading cause of harmful carbon emissions, which energy efficiency improvements can help mitigate. Utilities and energy service providers can use Ecova’s platform to scale energy efficiency improvements across multiple buildings.
