Today, EnergySavvy takes the wraps off Program Optix, our newest software application for utilities running energy efficiency programs.

Program Optix is a software-as-a-service product for residential energy efficiency programs. It tracks customers from intake through completion. The software actively works to maximize program conversion rates while minimizing operational costs through software automation. For the past 6 months, we’ve been operating and fine-tuning Program Optix with three of our customers, Clean Energy Works Oregon, Community Power Works (Seattle) and Utah Home Performance with ENERGY STAR.

“Clean Energy Works Oregon is a unique program with sophisticated and evolving needs. EnergySavvy has been a great partner for us, continually delivering innovation while supporting our changing requirements. EnergySavvy Program Optix gave us the ability for the first time to track projects in real-time, optimize our program workflow and run our program more effectively,” said Derek Smith, CEO of Clean Energy Works Oregon.

We think Program Optix is a big deal for the residential energy efficiency industry because it represents a clear step towards program transparency and performance, delivered and measured by software. Coupled with our Online Audit and in conjunction with the program management services offered by our partners, Program Optix represents a new standard for an industry accustomed to running programs with custom-built Excel spreadsheets, Access databases and Salesforce implementations.

“Utilities running energy efficiency programs are demanding more savings per program dollar and have higher expectations for how those savings are delivered and measured,” said Aaron Goldfeder, CEO of EnergySavvy, “Program Optix will be table stakes for residential efficiency programs: coordinating program delivery and measuring performance in real-time.”
