A new way to conduct energy audits
EMAT began in 2014 when a group of energy auditors, frustrated by the inefficiency and chaos that was all too common in the typical energy audit process, decided that there had to be a better way. Understanding that advanced technology was the key, the auditors partnered with a company that had extensive experience with tablet-to-cloud technology and began to develop a software tool that would make the energy audit process more streamlined and efficient, less stressful, and save them time and money.
By the end of the year, the first version of EMAT software was completed and the auditors began using it to conduct ASHRAE Level II audits. Significant efficiency gains were realized immediately, and the partners decided to make the EMAT software available to other companies. In 2016, EMAT 1.0 was completed and other companies began to benefit from the many advantages EMAT offered.
Next generation energy auditing platform
EMAT 1.0 was a giant step forward, but the EMAT team was just getting started. Over the next couple of years, as the team used EMAT for different kinds of audits and collected feedback from EMAT customers, the EMAT software was continually improved and the vision for a new, next-generation energy auditing platform – one that had the potential to become a global standard – took shape.
In 2018, the EMAT team began development of EMAT 2.0, a suite of products that would make that vision a reality and bring cost efficiency, flexibility, standardization, and data centralization to everyone who conducted energy audits. In December 2018 the first of the EMAT 2.0 products – EMAT Field Auditor – was completed and is now available. The other two next-generation products – EMAT Light and EMAT Analyzer – will be launched in 2019.
EMAT gets it.
EMAT energy auditing software is the best you can find. But what makes EMAT truly different is our engineers. We like to say that “EMAT was designed by energy engineers for energy engineers” because it truly was. And the good news: EMAT’s engineers are only a phone call or an email away from being at your service. Having audited tens of millions of square feet of every kind of facility imaginable, they know what you’re up against. In addition to providing real-world based technical support when you need it, EMAT’s engineers can help you at any point in the energy auditing process: data collection, analysis and consulting, report development, and even conducting your entire audit for you.
