Seattle-based McKinstry, a major company in the design, build and management of energy efficient facilities, said it's purchased the Enterprise Energy Management Suite of software services from Spokane's Itron Inc.
The goal is using the technology to help integrate smart-grid planning into the other services McKinstry offers, the company CEO, Dean Allen, said in a release.
The Web-based EEM Suite is described as an integrating software platform that collects utility-related data (billing, energy use, times of highest consumption) so that owners and managers can better plan water and energy use. No sales price was disclosed.
McKinstry has an office in Spokane.
