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.
Wind Analytics grew rapidly and graduated into its new office recently after graduating from the start-up incubator space New York Accelerator for a Clean and Renewable Economy, better known as NYC ACRE. Until February 2011 the firm was still very much in research and development phases, but is now getting business development under way, Tencer said.
