About Enertiv

Enertiv is a real estate technology company based out of New York City. We provide a range of data-driven technology solutions for streamlining building operations in commercial real estate portfolios.

Our platform optimizes the largest and most controllable operating expenses: maintenance and utilities. The data collected by Enertiv also drives data-driven decision making around tenant health and capital investments.

What We've Built

We call our platform an Operations Performance System (OPS). We deploy sensors to fill in the "blind spots" in building operations and continuously track every critical piece of equipment, tenant space, and indoor environmental condition to feed operators a stream of actionable insights to optimize their asset.

Enertiv OPS is made up of a number of technologies, which can be delivered individually, but are most powerful as a whole:

  • Enertiv AI (Asset Intelligence) continuously analyzes hundreds of pieces of equipment per building to deliver intelligent notifications around malfunctions and inefficiencies in real time.
  • Enertiv ATB (Automated Tenant Billing) completely automates the tenant submetering and billing process for both electricity and water.
  • The EnertivTwo Meter is an IoT device capable of affordably turning any building into a smart building and performing on-site "edge computing" analyses.

Our Company Mission

Enertiv makes commercial real estate easier to operate and more profitable to own. We envision a world in which building operators are empowered with real-time information so that the indoor environment in which we live and work is healthy and comfortable, and billions of dollars of asset value are unlocked through reduced operations expenses.

We are constantly innovating and utilizing the recent advances in Big Data, machine learning, virtual reality, the Internet of Things, and edge computing to transform enormous amounts of data into valuable insights for the country's leading real estate portfolios.
