Sentilla Corporation, an energy management startup, recently announced $7.5 million in Series B financing. The funding round, led by ONSET Ventures and Claremont Creek Ventures, will allow Sentilla to further develop its technology and expand its global operations.
Sentilla launched its patent-pending demand-side energy management technology in
May 2008. The company says its solution can be embedded virtually anywhere in
the world, providing insight into real world conditions directly at the
source of power activity, change or consumption.
Terry Opdendyk, a general partner at ONSET Ventures in Menlo Park, California, described the technology as part of an "emerging trend of the ‘Internet of Things’—where inanimate objects of every conceivable type communicate and exchange data effortlessly through wireless networks.”
