InTech Energy

Positively changing how building owners, facility managers, and energy service providers connect, interact and manage their building portfolios.



InTech Energy is an energy solutions and technology provider delivering cutting-edge software and professional energy engineering services to commercial buildings, utilities, and governmental markets. Founded in 2013, InTech Energy acquired the assets of Pinnacle Consulting Group, an energy efficiency software firm that was part of the company sold by Ashish Goel to the Willdan Group in 2008. Now, as part of InTech, Pinnacle continues to design, develop and enhance web applications for its Utility and Regulatory clients.

In 2014, InTech set out to change the commercial building automation market by creating Energy360, an affordable cloud-based SaaS system that can monitor, analyze and control energy consumption and operational costs for commercial buildings. We believe that our teams’ collective experience in software engineering, mechanical / energy engineering, and data science will distinguish our company from the competition and enable our customers to thrive in a rapidly changing energy industry.


InTech’s mission is to empower commercial buildings to participate in the Buildings Internet of Things (BIoT) transformation and effortlessly achieve operational efficiencies, reduced energy consumption, improved occupant experience, and enhanced financial performance.  We will enable transparency for our customers by using systems that are interoperable, secure and serviceable by local energy service providers. Furthermore, we aim to make BIoT simple, accessible, cost-effective and future-proof such that new technologies can be incorporated into the system.
