Nxegen is now Artis Energy!

To Our Valued Customers, Partners and Friends

I am pleased to announce an important and exciting change at NXEGEN. We have changed the name of our company to Artis Energy. As part of this process, we have created two subsidiaries — Artis Energy Intelligence and Artis Energy Solutions — to better align the company with the customers and rapidly evolving markets that we serve.

Through Artis Energy Intelligence, we are significantly enhancing our technological and energy analytics capabilities.  The cornerstone of Artis Energy Intelligence is the next generation of our proprietary, energy analytics platform, RTIS®.  This platform, which has received two foundational patents, provides our customers with real-time visibility and insights to help secure meaningful energy savings, identify operational improvements and analyze investment opportunities.  Artis Energy Intelligence will manage all aspects of RTIS® research, development, marketing and sales.

Artis Energy Solutions will continue to advance our leadership position in the energy solutions and services space.  Over the past few years, we have expanded our breadth of energy solutions dramatically.  These range from turnkey solutions such as high-efficiency lighting, refrigeration and mechanical systems, to our real-time energy analytics platform (RTIS®), wireless energy management systems, energy procurement, billing data analysis and energy consulting.  Additionally, we have expanded our engineering staff to bolster our ability to effectively implement our portfolio of energy solutions.  We will continue to forge and sustain our long-standing relationships with our utility partners, and we will continue to provide utility energy project financing and incentives for the benefit of our customers.

We have also created a new tagline, “Listen to Your Building”, which underscores our analytics-first approach to creating and implementing customer energy management strategies.  Rather than applying a one-size fits all approach, we leverage our domain expertise and RTIS® energy analytics platform to “listen to” and translate each building’s needs into personalized action plans and solutions.

By leveraging the building analytics capability of RTIS®, our extensive portfolio of energy solutions, and the deep domain expertise of our team, Artis Energy is well-positioned to build upon its leadership position in the energy management marketplace.

We have today launched our exciting new Artis Energy website, and we urge you to visit it at your soonest convenience. Our address and telephone numbers remain the same, as will our email login prefixes, followed by @artisenergy.com, rather than @nxegen.com.

We are also pleased to announce the opening of new office locations in New York City and in Stamford, CT to better serve our customers and partners. Our headquarters remain in Middletown, CT.

Please feel free to contact us, with any questions on these matters.

Sincerely,

Gordon Travers
Chief Executive Officer
