Lightspark is a cleantech software company that helps financial instutions, cities and utilities connect to homeowners through providing a data-rich enabling platform that makes energy efficiency choices easier for homeowners. Our software is in use in over 12 cities across Canada and maps the carbon and energy intensity in a community while providing a consumer-driven application that connects homeowners to energy advisors, trades and financing.
The Journey to Net Zero Homes
Using data science and geospatial modelling in the first stage using our Program Design Framework Software, we work with you to uncover opportunities and determine the current state of your building stock and calculating the carbon and energy savings potential. This deep housing simulation approach helps you determine your carbon reduction goals and key home building models to consider.
Using behavioural economics data combined with our deep housing simulation, we predict the market uptake and design the approach towards your technical, economic and achievable potential. The result is a detailed Net Zero Program Design strategy to execute towards your targets. This strategy aligns with local, state, provincial and federal building code data.
Driven by by sophisticated digital marketing algorithms, consumers are targeted based on their housing type and provided personalized offers. They arrive at the “Lightspark Concierge” which gives consumers their home energy and carbon score. Our digital home evaluation tools update their score and provide personalized bundled offers to help homeowners reduce their carbon and improve their home.
We deliver detailed reports that communicate the ongoing progress of your Net Zero and Energy Efficiency Program Delivery. This includes tracking the gaps between the predicted and actual needs of the market, conversion rates, and we help identify opportunities for further improvement to continue to engage internal and external stakeholders.
Lightspark has built a highly-innovative data platform for program design using a robust data model which includes a city’s energy consumption, behind-the-meter housing data and behavioural economics data. For a program designer, this data gives you an unprecedented geospatial data view that can better predict the program design for a city or utility energy efficiency and carbon reduction retrofit programs. This comprehensive view of your community’s building stock gives you the ability to see the gap between the current state and the potential state of improved homes, and to understand the barriers to encourage consumers to take action on these programs. The data methodology includes costing estimates for the assets to be upgraded and the labour cost, in addition to calculations on payback period scenarios for the consumer to plan incentives for each measure. The result is a program design software that reduces your administration and planning, and helps target your marketing dollars to predict outcomes with greater accuracy and conversions.
