About WatchWire:

WatchWire is an entrepreneurial, private equity-backed New York City-based provider of sustainability and energy management software-as-a-service and associated professional services to large commercial and corporate real estate, retail portfolios, industrial energy consumers, municipalities, educational institutions, utilities, and more.  By combining various streams of utility, weather, commodity market, metering, and building data in our integrated sustainability and energy management platform, we provide data-driven services and insights that help clients track and meet their ambitious sustainability goals, while also saving them time and money, reducing risks, and identifying cost saving opportunities.

Our clients, from small and medium enterprises to multi-national Fortune 500 companies to the largest regulated utilities in the world, range from mature sustainability veterans representing GRESB sector leaders, ENERGY STAR Partners of the Year, and progressive thought leaders, to companies just starting the sustainability journey with their first voluntary report(s), as well as clients simply interested in optimizing their utility bill management and reporting practices.  Regardless of the ultimate end-use case(s), timely, accurate, and complete data is paramount to energy and sustainability management and reporting.
