“Retroficiency’s leading building analytics capabilities, combined with Ecova’s vertical market expertise and energy efficiency program delivery, will enable customers to quickly identify and implement energy efficiency opportunities within their buildings,” said Bennett Fisher, CEO and co-founder of Retroficiency. “We’re very excited for this union between our two companies and know the market will be too.”

As a leading utility energy efficiency program implementer, Ecova said it serves nearly 50 utilities across the U.S. and has delivered more than 108 terawatt-hours of energy savings over the past 11 years. For Ecova’s broad base of commercial and industrial clients, this acquisition enables remote analytics for buildings in Ecova’s energy and sustainability management portfolio of over 700,000 sites.
