Technology Description

Tunation is a software technology that will allow energy service companies to cheaply and quickly identify the energy- and cost-saving potential for commercial and residential buildings. It uses new “zero touch” audit and simulation technologies to cost-effectively learn and adapt a building model in real time. By reducing costs, Tunation will allow small- and medium-sized businesses to afford these services, expanding the market and ultimately reducing the nation’s energy bill. Through Energy I-Corps, the team hopes to learn more about what it takes to build a successful business, working closely with industry to identify any potential roadblocks.
