EnergySavvy, a Seattle startup that helps utility and government agencies manage energy efficiency programs, has established a new outpost in Boston in order to serve its East Coast client base.
To help grow the office, the company has hired software veteran Tony Barnes. Barnes previously worked at Microsoft in the digital television advertising group. EnergySavvy now employs 20 people, and plans to have a handful of employees in Boston in the coming months.
“We’re very excited to join Boston’s vibrant clean tech community,” said Scott Case, EnergySavvy’s Chief Operating Officer. “We see it as an opportunity to continue to create innovative technology solutions to help utilities run cost effective energy efficiency programs that have a great impact on the communities they serve.”
EnergySavvy is led by Aaron Goldfeder, a former Microsoft employee who worked on Internet Explorer, Windows XP, Local Search and a Microsoft Internal Cloud Service, and Leo Shklovskii, formerly of Redfin and Amazon.
