In addition to GE’s investment as part of its “GE ecomagination Challenge,” GE Capital Real Estate is set to deploy Scientific Conservation’s energy analytics platform in several buildings in the United States, Canada, and the UK.

GE and Triangle Peak Partners made their investment to close SCI’s Series B funding at over $19 million. Financial details of the transaction were not disclosed.

SCI’s technology, SCIwatch™, interfaces remotely with building automation systems to analyze energy consumption in commercial buildings. The technology includes advanced engineering rules driven through neural networks to deliver automated fault detection and predictive maintenance techniques enabling ongoing commissioning of a building. Benefits include reduced energy usage, lower maintenance costs, and a consistent, standard platform that supports a wide variety of energy efficiency programs. Building energy usage accounts for 40 percent of all energy consumed in the United States.

SCI will benefit not only from the funding but the expertise of the new investors. Ricardo Angel, a senior vice president at GE Energy Financial Services, and Michael Morgan, CEO of Triangle Peak Partners, will serve on Scientific Conservation’s board of directors as observers. Morgan is a veteran of the energy industry with strong utility connections and is a former president of Kinder Morgan Inc. (NYSE: KMI) and Kinder Morgan Energy Partners, L.P. (NYSE:KMP). Morgan is a current board member of KMI.

“SCI is now extremely well-funded by a consortium of blue chip investors and positioned to become the world leader of next generation energy management solutions from the cloud for commercial, retail, and public sector building owners and their tenants,” said Russ McMeekin, CEO of Scientific Conservation.

“GE chose Scientific Conservation as a winner of its Ecomagination Challenge because of its value to customers, lead on its competition, strong management, customer pipeline, Software-as-a-Service business model and collaboration opportunities with GE Capital Real Estate,” said Angel.

“Triangle Peak Partners’ deep knowledge in energy efficiency for large buildings makes us uniquely qualified to partner with Scientific Conservation and help the company grow faster,” said Morgan.

SCI has raised more than $28 million along with existing investors, DFJ, DFJ Growth Fund and the Westly Group, has more than 20 million square feet of building space under management and is on track to exceed 100 million square feet by year’s end. The company operates in five countries.
