Unlock energy insights – ignite change

Used in over 45M sq ft of office buildings, Cortex provides you with the energy insights you need to make meaningful progress towards your ESG goals, deliver operational excellence, increase your asset value, and cut costs.

What drives us

Founded in 2014, for over ten years, we’ve focused on using data and data science to transform how buildings operate. But it’s our vision and mission that have always paved the way. Our vision is to preserve the planet by helping commercial real estate be more sustainable in a way that makes business sense.

We have a deep understanding of commercial real estate

Drawing from over a decade of energy-tech expertise and a family legacy in commercial real estate development, Cortex’s founder, Bryan Bennett, pinpointed a crucial gap: building engineers lack the necessary guidance to advance their company’s energy efficiency and emissions goals. In response, he launched Cortex Building Intelligence in 2014, dedicated to equipping teams with tools they’ll actually use and enabling them to drive the energy efficiency portfolios are looking for.
