Powering commercial real estate

We enable commercial real estate organisations to reduce energy consumption, improve facility maintenance, minimise disruption and decarbonise.

Commercial real estate organisations have energy-consuming assets dispersed across a portfolio of buildings: maintaining them can be costly and time-consuming. Often, energy and site maintenance are connected tasks – energy assets are not only maintenance heavy, they are usually essential to tenants. A new energy approach is needed - one that helps manage costs, minimise disruption to tenants and improve efficiency.
