Our research and development heritage goes back even before SHIFT was incorporated as a company. Prior to our founding as a company in June 2009, we had active support and talents from Mariner Partners Inc., the University of New Brunswick, and funding and research assistance from National Research Council and the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency. Almost three years of R&D were invested before SHIFT Energy was launched.
The company was founded by a group of like-minded entrepreneurs with experience in the diverse fields of information technology, telecommunications, engineering and environmental science. Initially located in Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada, SHIFT expanded its regional presence with the opening of a second location in Halifax, Nova Scotia in February 2010.
The first version of our EnergyMentor™ Dashboard was released in April, 2010. We then went through several Early Adopter and Pilot programs with several companies. Now, in its 4th version, the solution has evolved into a complete suite to meet a wide range of needs of commercial, institutional, and mid-sized industrial customers.
We are involved in making continuous improvements to our core IT solution and services, based on our customer feedback and innovation in energy management best practices.
