Industry Veteran John PItcher Joins Serious Energy to Lead Development of Next Generation Building Optimization Platform
Sunnyvale, CA – July 20, 2011 –
Serious Energy today announced the next step in its strategy to
increase the value of commercial real estate via its SaaS
multi-application building energy optimization platform, which
represents the next generation of intelligent building energy
management. Future development will be led by John Pitcher, who joins
the Company as Vice President of Research & Development. Mr.
Pitcher was formerly at Scientific Conservation, where he was founder
and President. Chip Pieper, also formerly with Scientific Conservation
as Vice President of Sales & Business Development, has joined
Serious Energy’s software and services business development and
operations management team.
“We’re in the midst of the most ambitious development to dramatically improve the value of our buildings,” said Kevin Surace, CEO, Serious Energy. “There is big data in our buildings, and we think we have finally cracked the code on using it effectively. We are now developing and deploying the most innovative and far-reaching features and technology in the industry to add efficiency to our buildings the likes no one has ever seen before.”
At a time when we spend over 90% of our lives inside buildings where we live, work, and learn, it is imperative that we define, develop, and deliver new ways for our buildings to do more – while spending less – for owners, operators, and occupants. “Across industries, from healthcare to transportation, we live in an increasingly automated world where everything is connected and everything is smart,” said Mark Mitchell, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Software & Services, Serious Energy, Inc. “Today we can monitor, control, share, respond to, and most importantly, intelligently act upon the enormous amounts of data that are continuously generated and collected from our buildings. The development of next-generation building analytics and control will dramatically impact the way buildings are operated - in ways that save time, save money, and create value for owners and occupants.”
“I believe Serious Energy’s strategy that combines expertise in materials sciences with energy algorithms and sub-metering is a winner,” said John Pitcher. “As an industry, we are just at the beginning. Serious Energy is deploying the most robust enterprise-class building optimization system available. I’m excited to be a part of the most innovative building energy team in the industry.”
Serious Energy also announced the opening of a new building energy and intelligence development center in Atlanta.
