Realizing a carbon-free future where buildings and people thrive.

Sustainability is mandatory.
Suffering is optional.

Lumen Energy was founded to make it possible for millions of buildings to benefit from clean energy technologies that are both profitable and open society’s door to a sustainable future. While many real estate leaders with good intentions once began the process to green their buildings, after a painful stretch of confusion without results, they concluded that the effort was simply not worth the return. And they were right — until now.

Lumen Energy empowers commercial building owners to generate new income from clean energy with precision, speed, and simplicity across their entire portfolio. We abstract away the complexity of selecting and deploying the most profitable, sustainable technologies for each building. We then automate deployment through a managed marketplace of qualified installation partners. Suddenly the equation flips. This new paradigm makes it possible to evaluate thousands of buildings in parallel and act upon upgrading the most profitable ones, unlocking a new asset class of climate-positive cashflows.

Our team of net-zero heroes.

Our team combines expertise in software, data science, clean energy deployment, real estate, and finance. Our team previously built products to manage credit card payments on the internet; automate mortgage processing; harness AI and satellite imagery to model the power grid; to power data centers with 24x7 clean energy. We have built solar projects. We have deployed fuel cell systems for companies like Walmart, AT&T, and Apple. We combine many distinct disciplines as we build a full-stack company that delivers real-world impact.

How we operate.

 

Energy data is our superpower. We translate energy and building data science into real estate returns that improve your bottom line. While there are many ESG tools out there today, dashboards and $500/ton carbon offsets alone are not enough to make an impact, and will only drag down your P&L. At Lumen Energy, we skip past reports and drive your business to action that is profitable and tailored to your assets.

Working with us is a collaboration. We strive to start where you are and to deliver solutions that meet the needs of your enterprise.
