SHIFT Energy is proud to be a Mariner company.
Headquartered in Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada, Mariner is over 200 professionals strong. Our team includes former CEOs, CIOs, entrepreneurs and innovators with experience operating publicly traded corporations, mature privately-owned entities and start-ups. Many were pioneers in advanced networking technologies and are leaders in big data applications, analytics and IoT applications in telecom, video and energy.
SHIFT Energy was created by a group of entrepreneurs with years of experience in ICT, engineering and environmental science. Our research and development into an energy-saving product for building systems dates to 2006, during our incubation period inside Mariner. With support from Mariner, the University of New Brunswick, the National Research Council and the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency, SHIFT was launched as a company in 2009.
Our first product, EnergyMentor, an energy management information system dashboard, was released in 2010. After four years working side-by-side with our customers, we learned that although real-time dashboard and deep analytics identify opportunities to save energy, realizing those opportunities can be nearly impossible given the day-to-day operations of a facility. As these opportunities pass by, so do the benefits of energy efficiency.
This eureka moment for SHIFT was the concept of auto-correcting – that the analytics engine must communicate directly with building systems in order to achieve energy optimization. This led us to develop and launch our Energy Optimization Software (EOS™) in 2014. Backed by our expert energy engineering practice, infrastructure partnerships and world-class software support, EOS provides an enterprise-grade solution focused on returning maximum benefits in a short payback period.
In 2015, SHIFT Energy became a division of Mariner Partners.
