Find out how they are helping Wattsense reduce global energy waste by changing the building management sector.
At Wattsense we genuinely believe that the most significant technology at hand today for the environment is the upgrade of the code controlling Building Management Systems (BMS). These buildings consume 9% of the world’s energy, however, the software that controls the equipment for indoor environments (air conditioning, ventilation, lighting) is based on obsolete and inefficient technologies.
Our vision is to make possible that software developers lower the global energy consumption by providing them with the easiest, fastest and most affordable way to connect to buildings, via our cloud Application Programming Interface (API) and BMS Box.
I joined Wattsense last June as the Communications Manager, responsible for informing and promoting the organization’s mission, its people, products, and services as well as helping establish our identity.
During my seven years of professional experience, I have worked as a journalist, a communications specialist for PR agency S/Cavoli, as well as developed strategies for French startups Boostyourfilm and Upfluence. I have a bachelor’s degree in Mass Communications from the PUCMM University in the Dominican Republic.
