About EnergyDeck

EnergyDeck is an analytics-based Internet of Things platform for the built environment, that represents a step change from the traditional approach to energy and resource management. The EnergyDeck value proposition is based around highly flexible data import capabilities, crowd-sourcing of building performance data and advanced analytics, all delivered through a simple and powerful user interface. This enables users to improve building efficiency as well as occupant health and well-being, ultimately reducing costs and increasing asset value.

"As a firm, we believe in transparency, engagement, ownership and the power of data. We strive to contribute our share to making the world a better place by bridging the information gaps in the built environment and ultimately helping owners and users generate value from running their buildings better."
