Energy efficiency audits on the fly?

April 11, 2012
Written by
Home energy efficiency startup Essess has a pretty cool idea for bringing building energy efficiency information to the masses. It's basically a merging of two already successful ideas: Google Street View and online real estate libraries like Zillow or Trulia.


The company plans to send cars to take thermal energy scans of every building in the country, find energy leaks and give the buildings each an energy score, and then build an online library of that information.

The company will use high-throughput thermal scanning cameras and analytical software that it developed to find energy weak spots in buildings.
