How did you get interested in energy?
I was first exposed to energy savings when I was renovating our first Condo, and being in the mobile space and looking at the growth of IoT and other devices that let you monitor your energy consumption etc, made me want to be a part of the drive to make consumers of energy more conscious of their energy usage.

BERC Factor
