Energy optimisation in public buildings
Public building owners use our platform to identify energy savings and document their efforts according to international accredited standards
Save time and money with the digital energy advisor
The digital energy advisor automatically calculates potential energy savings across public building portfolios. This way, energy managers focus their time where it matters most. Integrate multiple energy sources directly from your utility and start saving today.
With over 10,000 public buildings on our platform, we’ve successfully identified and implemented energy savings in schools, daycares, nursing homes, hospitals, universities, public administration buildings and many more building types. We work closely with energy managers, facility managers, and operators in public organisations. Based on the results of the analyses, we help the staff successfully implement and document energy savings.
Detailed analytics serving thousands of public buildings
Easy Integration of relevant energy sources
Start by integrating energy consumption data directly from your utility. We pair this with data from publicly available sources such as national holidays, weather data and opening hours from Google Maps.
This way, energy and facility managers can quickly get an overview of the platform’s possibilities and start saving energy.
Automatic identification of energy savings
We use advanced algorithms that learn how each building is being operated. For public building owners this is of particular interest, as many of their sites has different functions.
Because the system knows and understands how each public building is being operated, it can automatically identify assets in each building that are not operated optimally – e.g. due to increased baseload consumption or solar panels not producing the amount of power they should.
Document the effort and share the results
Our public sector customers need to be able to document the efforts made to achieve an energy-efficient operation of their property portfolio. Our platform supports energy optimization and efficiency projects, and automatically verifies and documents these directly on the platform.
We calculate energy savings based on measured consumption before and after the savings are implemented – while controlling for factors we know affects the energy consumption in the building.
We help the most climate ambitious organisations to do even better
What our customers say about Ento
We help businesses and public institutions use energy in an efficient and sustainable way. In many cases without any large investments.
It’s cool that the analysis work and data processing now takes up so little time, that we can use our resources in the buildings. Now the time is spent on what creates value.
Through our strategic partnership with Ento, we can automatically identify and document energy savings in our branches and buildings. This has resulted in an incredible result oriented tool that helps to create change rather than just reporting on consumption.
We are working on all fronts to lower our energy consumption, but combating energy waste through Ento’s solution is an easy way to achieve energy savings immediately – and the results speak for themselves!

Still got questions?
We have A LOT of data, and not just energy consumption data. Is it useful?
Yes. In fact, for applications within the manufacturing industry we often require other data sources than those publicly available. Occupant data from inside buildings may also be a great indicator of actual usage – but it’s not required and may also be available without installing new sensors.
Do I need an Energy Management System (EMS) to use your AI?
No. In cases where there is not already an EMS, we collect data directly from your utilities. Often, Ento is used as the primary EMS, as many organizations don’t want two systems that both collect energy data.
If you’ve already invested heavily in a EMS with lots of sub-metering and data infrastructure, we can leverage that work and integrate directly with that.
Does using Ento require lots of structured data?
Yes – and no. Utility data is already very structured and accessible – after all, it determines your monthly bill!
In order to use our services, all we need is to access the consumption data. Data about your buildings, opening hours, weather data etc. is already integrated on the platform. No manual input is required, which is why we can create value within hours of sourcing your energy data.
How much does it cost?
Our services are billed on an annual basis depending on the number and types of buildings you have in your portfolio. In contrast to traditional approaches, we don’t charge an upfront or integration fee.
We will happily import your data and show you the expected value, and even let you try our platform on your buildings, before you have to make the decision.
Can I still use my trusted energy manager?
Yes! Several energy professionals use our platform. Our solution is designed to combine the strengths of computers with the experience and skills of human experts.
The goal is to take away the tedious task of looking at thousands of data points every hour and allow them to focus on the important aspects of their work – to reduce your energy and carbon footprint.
How are you different from an Energy Management System (EMS)?
The purpose of an energy management system (EMS) is to collect and visualise raw data from meters installed in buildings. Many EMS users have to spend a lot of time looking at the data or manually configuring alarms to figure out when something is not performing well.
Our solution uses existing consumption data, which could be collected in an existing EMS or come directly from your utility or meters. We help building owners find and prioritise buildings that can be optimised with a positive return on investment.
