Buildings serve our lives. Yet commercial buildings collectively emit nearly 4 gigatons of carbon dioxide each year—11% of global energy-related CO2 emissions. New technologies like solar, batteries, heat pumps, and electric vehicle chargers can transform many commercial properties into net-zero profit centers. Yet because each building’s “energy DNA” is unique, their owners find it bewildering to simply determine what, if anything, is valuable—and then size, select, finance, and orchestrate these new assets and payment streams. Complexity prevents acting at scale.
For portfolios of commercial buildings, Lumen Energy automates the programmatic pricing, selection, and deployment of profitable clean energy. All buildings are first remotely valued using a fusion of energy data science first developed on supercomputers with utility, market, geospatial, and remote sensing data. Next, each and every property receives a custom-tailored financial model, and a clean energy digital blueprint, which a marketplace of installers compete to build. Lumen Energy’s user-centric software enables effortless collaboration as real estate teams find new income on their net-zero journey.
