Powering the Energy Sector with AI: a ResNet and TurnKey Collaboration

Powering the Energy Sector with AI

In an era of digital transformation and rapid technological advances, companies that can leverage innovative technologies to address industry challenges stand at the forefront of growth and success. One such company is ResNet, an AI-based software developer that primarily serves the energy sector. They collaborated with TurnKey Labs, a leading provider of custom offshore development teams, to create a powerful new product platform. This article delves into this dynamic partnership and its impact on ResNet’s growth trajectory.



This not-for-profit, membership corporation was founded in 1995 by the National Association of State Energy Officials and Energy Rated Homes of America. It’s known for developing a national market for home energy rating systems and energy-efficient mortgages.

RESNET serves as a national standards-making body for building energy efficiency rating and certification systems in the United States.

ResNet’s Challenges in the Energy Sector

ResNet faced a significant hurdle. To keep pace with customer demands in the fast-evolving energy sector, they needed to build a new product platform. However, building a dedicated software development team from scratch poses its unique challenges. Finding the right talent, integrating them into existing processes, and retaining them over time for consistent growth and development are substantial undertakings.

TurnKey Labs’ Solution for ResNet

Understanding the complexities of ResNet’s situation, TurnKey Labs stepped in with a solution tailor-made for success. They formed a customized offshore development team for ResNet, including a Full Stack Tech Lead, a Lead Front End Developer, a Senior Front End Developer, a Senior Backend Developer, and a UI/UX Designer. This remote team was seamlessly integrated with ResNet’s existing operations and geared towards long-term retention, ensuring ResNet’s ongoing growth and development.

Key Results and Achievements

The results of this collaboration were nothing short of impressive. Together, ResNet and TurnKey Labs managed to develop and release over 800 new features for the product platform. The team collectively wrote more than 300,000 lines of code in just 24 months, a testament to their productivity and dedication. Furthermore, they achieved an impressive 0.0% churn in the development team, signifying the stability and satisfaction of the team.


TurnKey’s boots-on-the-ground presence along with decades of experience building and scaling teams, mitigates against most of the cons people typically associate with offshore development (lack of transparency and high churn), while offering most of the pros (similar if not better quality of talent than in the US at a lower cost). That’s made a huge difference for us.

Impact of the Collaboration on ResNet’s Growth

The impact of this successful collaboration on ResNet’s growth has been significant. The company has increased its capacity to meet customer demands while reducing the time-to-market for new product features. By effectively leveraging the skills and expertise of the offshore development team, ResNet has enhanced its ability to scale and adapt to the evolving needs of the energy sector.


The collaboration between ResNet and TurnKey Labs illustrates the power of a successful partnership in the tech industry. The combination of ResNet’s innovative vision for the energy sector and TurnKey Labs’ expertise in creating and managing dedicated software development teams resulted in remarkable growth and success. This partnership’s achievement serves as a shining example of the potential of AI-driven solutions in the energy industry and beyond. The future is bright, with countless opportunities for continued growth and innovation.
