Can energy data analytics company Bidgely really beat out the competition by 300% and cut energy usage in homes by six percent? Hundreds of  of our listeners wanted to find out this week as they downloaded this podcast and checked out our interview with Abhay Gupta, CEO of Bidgely.

Our Energy Efficiency Markets podcast often is downloaded by hundreds of energy efficiency professionals, but this one jumped to the top of our popularity list in a matter of days. What sets this company apart, Bidgely says, is its ability to let homeowners know how much energy different devices are using–air conditioners and dishwashers, for example. That’s how the company can achieve the savings, he says.
