About Enervee

Enervee® is the world's first personal energy efficiency scoring platform. The Enervee® Score makes it easy for consumers, businesses and governments to purchase appliances and electronics that save energy, save money and help our planet. Enervee was founded by two friends, Matthias Kurwig and Don Epperson, in the summer of 2010 while both were planning to buy energy efficient appliances for their new homes. That simple task turned out to be very challenging as it required searching through 18 different data sources to be able to truly compare the energy efficiency of TVs, Refrigerators, Washing Machines, and other household electronics and appliances. This began a quest to create a platform which could automatically rank products and people based on their energy efficiency—the outcome of which was the Enervee® Score. Enervee has a simple mission—to make it easier for you to find the products that save energy, save you money, and help the planet.

Enervee® is a registered trademark and is spelled as one word. Only the first "E" is capitalized. Every other character should be lowercase. Enervee is pronounced similar to the english word "energy". The international phonetic alphabet (IPA) spelling is ˈenərviː.
