Founded and led by pioneers from the lighting-as-a-service industry, Social Energy Partners provides turnkey intelligent building technology solutions to optimize building energy efficiency, operational performance and occupant comfort.

About Us

Deeply convinced that LED lighting represents the most impactful and immediate opportunity in energy efficiency, SEP pioneered Lighting-as-a-Service (LaaS) model in 2013 to expedite LED lighting adoptions. By subscribing to lighting services as opposed to purchasing lighting equipment outright, our clients are able to remove technology risks and budget constraints in adopting rapidly evolving LED lighting technologies.

In 2017, we expanded our services to encompass a broader universe of breakthrough intelligent building technologies (IBTs) that could generate more energy savings and carbon reduction as well as increase operational efficiency and occupant comfort and productivity for our clients. Today, our turnkey IBTaaS solutions today could reduce a building’s energy usage and carbon footprint by well over 30% in a matter of weeks without the owner or tenant’s capital outlay or out-of-pocket expense.

With an extensive network of global IBT suppliers, installation partners and capital providers, we are actively developing IBTaaS projects in the U.S., the Caribbean, Southeast Asia, and Africa.
