Adrian Tuck,
CEO, Tendril
Boulder, CO, U.S.A. — (METERING.COM) — February 28, 2012 – Energy software provider Tendril is to expand its offerings with the acquisition of home energy audits and residential retrofit software developer Recurve.

Over time, Tendril will incorporate the Recurve residential energy auditing software and analytics into its cloud platform, TendrilConnect™.

“This is a very organic fit,” said Adrian Tuck, CEO of Tendril. “Recurve has been providing deep residential energy auditing software for years to the home energy services and retrofit industry.”

Recurve is known for its advanced energy modeling, reporting and pricing software tools that have been used to help contractors conduct home energy audits, provide specific energy saving recommendations and residential retrofits to deliver more comfort, convenience and energy efficiency to consumers. Tendril will use the Recurve software in its platform in combination with its own building physics model and behavioral science to provide individualized residential energy savings recommendations.

Tendril will retain Recurve’s current employees as part of its new West Coast operations headquartered in San Francisco.

This is the company’s second acquisition. Tendril acquired GroundedPower, a leader in behavioral science and consumer engagement, in October 2010.
