Before “sustainability” was part of our everyday vocabulary, Advantage IQ was pioneering cost and energy management technologies. Founded in 1995, the Spokane-based company has built the expertise to leverage actionable data about energy usage, waste, lease and telecom needs to help customers save time and money, and ultimately, become more energy efficient. Today, the company is quietly emerging as a major player in the rapidly coalescing sustainability industry.
Cost and energy management are an integral step in the entire sustainability value chain. Companies operating multiple locations can use Advantage IQ’s technology to reduce energy expenses, manage risk and improve environmental performance. According to the company website, Advantage IQ uses a patented system to provide online access to critical cost and consumption data to enable informed strategic management and empower energy efficiency.
Advantage IQ is producing real results – economically and environmentally.
In 2010 alone, the company provided energy performance ratings to more than 38,000 buildings, helping to maximize resources and reduce greenhouse gas emissions companies throughout the US. In fact, Advantage IQ’s leading role in the energy efficiency sector has been recognized five consecutive years by the EPA, through the ENERGY STAR Sustained Excellence Award, given only to a select group of the 12,000 organizations that participate in the ENERGY STAR program.
And businesses recognize Advantage IQ’s value – the company reports a 95 percent client retention rate, saving customers more than $143 million in the last two years.
Advantage IQ is certainly a player in the Northwest cleantech landscape, and a company to pay attention to.
