How we got here…

2014

Humble beginnings

Legend was founded in April 2014 in an apartment in New York City. We set about to fundamentally transform the energy advisory business by leveraging real-time data to help customers increase efficiency and lower their natural resource intensity. This lowers financial risk and creates sustainability in the truest sense.

Demystifying the market

We began by helping customers gain transparency into their energy use - into the hidden fees they are being charged by brokers as well as the volumetric drivers behind their meters which are driving their exposure to market risk and environmental impact. To really get behind the meter and help customers understand the volumetric risk was a challenge requiring a completely new technology to be developed to facilitate this change.

Doing it for ourselves

After several failed attempts to outsource we set about building the technology in house. We chose to start in some of the toughest industrial environments we could find to build a robust data collection coupled with a ground breaking cloud based platform which could securely acquire real-time data in any customer environment and make it immediately actionable.

Giving agency back to our clients

Legend’s Markets, Infrastructure and Analytics teams collaborate to bring customers directly to wholesale power and gas markets giving customers complete transparency into their consumption and control over market risk. Real-time commodity markets, customer production, power and gas demand all in a single platform.

Beyond manufacturing

2018 saw us expand our platform into almost every industry vertical from hospitality and commercial real estate to data centers and critical infrastructure. We also developed a wireless package from the circuit board up for deployment across large industrial complexes and college campuses, reducing the cost of installation, increasing the speed of deployment and lowering maintenance costs.

Creating smart cities

The end of the decade saw us deploy across entire cities to manage their critical infrastructure systems. The industrial and municipal markets have had little access to energy and operational data beyond macro metrics such as monthly utility bills and Legend Analytics™ platform has been transformative providing actionable real-time data for these sectors.

We have grown to our current stage almost completely through client referrals based on the transparency and demonstrable results we have been able to achieve for our clients. These results are delivered through the coupling of expert advice, transparency and cutting-edge technology.
