Founded in 2017 in Houston, TX, INOVUES is a window technology company that is focused on commercial building upgrades and energy efficiency retrofits—we are a cleantech startup that is working to make 20th-century buildings more energy-efficient, smart, and sustainable.

The majority of existing buildings today (the largest end-user of energy) were built more than 20 years ago with thermally inefficient windows, responsible for up to 40% of building energy loss. In the U.S. alone, replacing the 7Bn sq. ft. of inefficient windows in commercial buildings with high-performance glass can reduce energy consumption by about 700 trillion BTUs, lowering CO2 emissions by 1.7 gigatons and providing $260Bn in savings annually. The problem is that replacing the windows is almost always not a feasible option for building owners due to the associated high costs, business disruption, and very long payback periods.

INOVUES developed an innovative solution that reduces the cost of upgrading the windows and glass facades of commercial buildings by up to 10 times while also enabling them to incorporate the latest energy-saving and smart glass technologies without replacement or reglazing. We make it feasible – and financially attractive – for building owners to upgrade their windows to save up to 40% on energy consumption while improving occupant comfort and increasing the value and sustainability of their properties—all at a fraction of the cost of window replacement and without disruption or upfront costs. Our mission is to help cities worldwide achieve their energy-efficiency and emissions-reduction targets by increasing and accelerating the rate of window upgrades.

Our product is currently installed on buildings in Boston, Seattle, and Los Angeles. Our early adopters include Fortune 500, large commercial real estate companies, and an alliance of 140+ energy utilities. We are backed by great investors, including Saint-Gobain, one of the world’s largest building products companies, and CTAN, the largest angel investor group in the US.

INOVUES was recently featured by Bill Gates' Breakthrough Energy in their 2021 Climate Action Playbook. In 2019, INOVUES was named to Cleantech Group's 50-to-Watch List, which recognizes the top 50 early-stage companies globally that are delivering high-impact solutions that can change the future of sustainability. INOVUES was also awarded by Greentown Labs, Saint-Gobain NOVA, and Certain-Teed in the InNOVAte 2019 Challenge out of more than 110 companies from across the globe. In 2018, INOVUES won the Cleantech Open National Award and was selected by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) as a finalist in the 76West Clean Energy Competition out of 152 companies.

INOVUES is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
