Opportunity Mapping

Going beyond energy potential studies, Lightspark analyses data from over 25 data sources to provide one of the most detailed community and city energy intensity analysis to date with the goal of helping you more accurately target energy savings at the building and homeowner level.

Using a geo-spatial building modelling, machine-learning and behavioural economics, Lightspark can give your city the ability to see energy and carbon savings with much greater clarity for reducing energy and carbon intensity. Our solution shows a more accurate view of current asset and savings estimates at the household level, and using behavioural economics data, we can help you predict the best target candidates for your programs, whether that’s a low income or median income home improvement program.
