Founded in 2004 in Oberlin, Ohio, Lucid is a privately held, founder-led software company located in Oakland, California. Lucid’s mission is to revolutionize buildings with software. Pioneers in delivering real-time feedback on energy and water use via the web, Lucid’s team of engineers, computer scientists, and designers makes building performance information universally accessible and engaging so that people have the necessary data visualization and management tools to enable energy efficiency across their organizations.
Innovations in software cannot be efficiently brought to market because of the lack of interoperability and access to building performance data. In 2013 Lucid released BuildingOS, the first operating system for buildings. BuildingOS is intended to revolutionize the industry by creating a common interface for all building functions and streamlining the customer on-boarding process. BuildingOS is also the first energy management platform built and designed specifically for a wide variety of audiences, and the first to offer responsive, multi-device support.
