Wind Analytics is everything an energy firm isn't supposed to be.
The startup firm is new, small in scale, focused on leveraging distributed generation, funded by venture capital and headquartered in an icily cool part of New York City's Brooklyn Borough. In an industry dominated by behemoth established players built on the hub-and-spoke model of centralized fossil fuel energy production distributed over vast physical footprints, Wind Analytics differences make it the anomaly that could just be the industry's data-driven future.
The firm's walls are hung with whiteboards covered in inscrutable calculations, speaking to the power of the original algorithms that are central to Wind Analytic's unique proposition.
