Company Summary

LinkCycle helps manufacturers dramatically reduce energy costs. Founded in the MIT labs, the LinkCycle platform reveals invisible patterns of energy waste and uncovers potential savings by using data that already exists in the factory. With over 90% accuracy, LinkCycle's proprietary algorithms identified $600,000 savings on a Rubbermaid factory's $3.1 Million annual energy bill, without conducting costly plant audits or installing sub-meters.
