New Ecology, Inc. is seeking a Solutions Architect in its Boston office.
New Ecology is developing low-cost building monitoring systems designed to reduce energy and water consumption, reduce carbon outputs, improve occupant comfort, lower operating costs and reduce equipment maintenance costs. We have developed and deployed monitoring solutions for heating and hot-water systems in multifamily housing that collect operational data for fault-detection and controls optimization, and monitors potable water consumption in real time. NEI is building a team to help expand this work into new market sectors and equipment types while reaching a scale that can have measurable impacts on energy efficiency. We believe this approach is capable of rapidly reducing carbon emissions.
