Built Environment Insights
America needs to decarbonize 7,800 buildings every day for the next 28 years if we are to reach our 2050 climate goals – the first step in each of these projects is on-site data collection of existing infrastructure. EMPEQ’s SaaS product captures and digitizes data in the built environment. In our beachhead market of field engineers, the solution improves efficiency rates on site audits by up to 80% and provides previously scarce atomic-level equipment data. The product’s native intelligence and growing body of data delivers the crucial built environment insight needed by an ageing energy infrastructure struggling to reduce consumption and greenhouse gases.
