Our mission is to enable everyone to consume energy efficiently and smartly

At Ento Labs, we use data, algorithms and modern cloud infrastructure to help businesses and public institutions use energy in an efficient and sustainable way – in many cases without any large investments.

According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), energy use in buildings accounts for about 28% of global CO2 emissions. By 2030, this percentage should be significantly reduced and by 2050, CO2 emissions should be close to zero. This is only possible if we significantly increase the speed and scale of the transition. In buildings, there are a number of areas where we need to take action to reach our ambitious targets. The problem is that it is often expensive and time-consuming to find out what the best and most effective measures are. If we are to succeed in the green transformation, it is therefore essential that we have new, data-driven tools that can help building owners and operators understand which solutions are most effective across buildings, support the complex optimization process, and ultimately verify that the actions are having the expected impact.

The virtual energy advisor

The biggest obstacle to efficient and sustainable building operations is costly and slow processes. Our virtual energy advisors automate the process and support fast and scalable energy optimization.

At the heart of our solution is a set of advanced algorithms that attempt to “understand” the energy consumption of a building. Energy data is collated and enriched with weather data and other information about the building before being analyzed for the most effective energy optimization measures.

The measures are automatically prioritized by the system and presented to the building owner or operator so that they can take action where the potential is greatest. After implementation, the virtual advisor monitors consumption to document actual savings, which can also be used further in the organization. For example, this information can support the work of sustainability managers and in some cases be an important part of a company’s CSR reporting on sustainability and climate impact.

Our virtual energy advisor focuses largely on the easiest and most efficient solutions first, but can help throughout the journey towards zero-emission buildings. We are convinced that in a few years’ time, very few energy optimization measures will take place without the assistance of a virtual energy advisor!

Who we are

Ento Labs was created to contribute to the green transition by unlocking the value stored in data.

Based on the whole team’s experience in optimizing manual processes with data and advanced algorithms, we have developed a product and strategy to have the biggest possible impact on the green transition.

Our values

As a fast-growing company, it’s important for us to have a common set of values so that potential, new, and existing employees know what to expect and are also aware of the company’s priorities.

Our current Code of Conduct:

We’re a team of pros

We’re all on the team because we’re world class at what we do. We strive to stay on top of our game while driving towards shared company goals.

We value work/life fit

Your personal wellbeing is key. Make your work and personal life fit – to enjoy both more. We want Ento Labs to be popular with your family and friends too.

We’re biased towards action

We embrace change and are willing to take calculated risks with the information available. We fail fast to find the best solutions as soon as possible.

We’re pragmatic

Our job is to solve problems, not reinvent the wheel or jump on the latest, most hyped technology. It’s much easier to explore unknown waters on a ship that has been proven to work.

We explore and challenge

If we don’t experiment and challenge the status quo, we can’t change the world fast enough to succeed in our mission. We share and learn from your results, regardless of the outcome, to keep evolving.

We assume good intent

We trust everyone to take responsibility for their contributions and reach out if they need help, and we always assume that our coworkers’ intentions are good.

We’re driven by impact

When in doubt, go for the largest potential impact!
