This interview is part of our new AI in Energy series, where we interview the world’s top thought leaders on the front lines of the intersections between AI and energy.
In this interview, we speak with Guillaume Marceau, Director of Software Development at Bright Power, to understand how his company is using AI to transform energy, and what the future of the energy industry holds.
1. What’s the story behind your company? Why and how did you begin?
GM: Bright Power started in 2004 by connecting the benefits of investing in solar and energy efficiency together. Then we simplified the process of making and evaluating investment decisions through the creation of a simple but rigorous analytics platform, EnergyScoreCards. We developed deep engineering expertise in how to make buildings better for occupants while lowering energy usage, both for existing buildings and new construction. We learned about all the rebates, tax credits and other financial incentives that improve the financial returns of our solutions. And when we realized that our customers didn’t just want advice, they wanted action, we built a full turnkey construction operation to implement the solutions we recommend. Finally, since energy waste creeps back if no one is watching, we created an energy management service, MoBIUS®, that brings our energy savings and troubleshooting expertise to operations teams.
