The US faces a bit of a math problem when it comes to making its buildings more energy efficient. If every energy auditor worked around the clock, it would take 22 years to analyze all buildings.

Of course, the audit is only step one.

“At that point we wouldn’t have saved a single kilowatt-hour of energy,” said Mike Kaplan, vice president of marketing for Retroficiency, a building analytics company and the source of the 22-year statistic.

Is there a way to speed the process – and allow auditors to eat and sleep, too? Retroficiency is a part of a breed of startups that see Big Data and analytics as the solution.
