Encycle In The News

Corporate Knights

Corporate Knights, an award-winning sustainable economy magazine, has recognized Encycle as one of Canada’s fastest-growing green companies in its 2022 Future 50 list. The publication drew from 1,100 publicly listed and 4,015 privately owned companies headquartered in Canada. It determined the ones that earn the majority of their revenues from clean energy themes, including energy efficiency. Last year, Encycle raised $7.5 million from a group of sustainability-oriented investors led by Montreal-based Cycle Capital. Encycle is using the funds to strengthen its partnership programs with major industry players such as Carrier and Honeywell.


Encycle has been recognized as a Silver Stevie® Award winner in the 20th Annual American Business Awards® for our Swarm Logic HVAC energy saving technology. The nomination fell under the Company / Organization Energy Industry Innovation of the Year category. The 2022 competition received more than 3,700 nominations and included over 230 professionals worldwide participating in the judging process. Judges acknowledged Encycle’s unique approach to HVAC energy management as a “magnificent concept for sustainability” and “brilliant innovation.” You can view the ABA Company / Organization category winners by clicking the button below.


HVAC rooftop units (RTUs) represent a big portion of a building’s impact on global warming. It should come as no surprise that traditional low-tech approaches to controlling RTUs have failed to address this concern. When operating independently, these units may not even deliver sufficiently on the climate demands of a building. In this article, Encycle’s Ana-Paula Issa explains how the company’s intelligent approach to operating RTUs as a coordinated system offers more flexibility and provides an autonomous path to greater efficiency and less energy use.

Encycle was again recognized for conserving energy through biomimicry, the practice of replicating characteristics of plants and animals to improve humankind’s products and systems. This BOSS Magazine article discusses how Encycle’s Swarm Logic® energy-saving technology gets a building’s HVAC rooftop units to work together to optimize energy efficiency, similar to how honeybees collectively synchronize their hive activity.

The article also explores other nature-inspired technologies like wind turbines, ocean wave power systems, and bullet trains.

Smart Energy Decisions

Nearly one year into the Covid-19 pandemic, business facilities are still operating at reduced occupancy levels. These dramatic shifts in facility use and patterns can make it challenging for facility managers to optimize the energy efficiency of their HVAC equipment. In a recent article published by Smart Energy Decisions titled, “Commercial HVAC practices: Adaptability is key during a continually changing business landscape,” Encycle looks at these challenges and examines important HVAC energy considerations.

Learn why companies that embrace more adaptable systems and control technologies are having greater success at optimizing their energy consumption and savings.


What do the latest optimization technologies mean for HVAC contractors? Plenty, according to a recent ACHR news article, “The Contractor’s System Optimization Opportunity.” Written by Robert Beverly, the publication’s senior editor, the article focuses on cloud-based tools, artificial intelligence (AI), and twinning. It features insights from Chris Hensley, Encycle EVP of Sales and Marketing, on how these modern approaches have an upside for contractors when done right. In the article, Chris points out benefits contractors can experience from having a new source of energy savings to offer their customers, including a business edge, recurring revenue, better relationships, and greater retention.

Read how today’s technologies are increasing the contractor’s ability to solve their customers’ pain points and deliver new value propositions.



Nanalyze is a media and research firm that educates and informs investors about disruptive technologies that make the world a better place. Encycle was featured in this Nanalyze article focused on how biomimicry companies help nature heal itself. In the article, you’ll learn how honey bees inspired Encycle’s Swarm Logic® energy management technology and why the company’s enterprise solution is being integrated into major building automation system platforms like Honewell Multisite.

Read why green tech investors are swarming around Encycle, investing millions of dollars into its proven HVAC optimization technology that has helped customers reduce tons of CO2 emissions.

Biomimicry and Business: How Companies Are Using Nature’s Strategies to Succeed

Biomimicry is the practice of observing and then mimicking nature’s strategies to solve business and engineering challenges. Written by Margo Farnsworth, a writer and biomimicry educator, “Biomimicry and Business” is a first-of-its-kind book that shows readers how they can successfully bring biomimicry and bioinspired design into their businesses based on what other companies have already achieved.

Encycle is featured in Farnsworth’s book, along with Nike and four other successful companies. Read how Encycle founders Mark Kerbel and Roman Kulyk’s knowledge of honeybee and ant societies served as inspiration for the company’s cloud-based technology that is transforming the energy management industry through the use of artificial intelligence.

Ask Nature

When engineers think of innovative ways to improve energy efficiency, it’s not unusual for them to take their cues from nature. That’s because there is much to be gained by adopting the practice of biomimicry. By studying and mimicking the strategies that organisms and natural systems have used for billions of years to evolve, innovative companies can find valuable insights and proven ideas that translate into smart solutions for today’s world.

Learn how Encycle’s Swarm Logic cloud-based energy management technology was inspired by the swarm intelligence of honey bees, resulting in a synchronized effort that significantly reduces energy consumption and demand in commercial buildings by coordinating the operation of HVAC rooftop units (RTUs).
