APPROACH

Deployed sensing technology

Deploying current and voltage sensing technology, a c2 energy monitoring IoT system to gather energy data from users who could not access their smart meter data was created.

Algorithm expertise

Designed to collect energy data in a non-intrusive and easy to install manner, the WiFi-enabled IoT system reports back to a cloud-based server for processing and analysis.

Energy disaggregation technology

Energy disaggregation intelligence learns patterns of behaviour within the energy data and identifies bespoke energy profiles for businesses.

Energy management system to empower SMEs in the control of their energy usage and contribute to the UK's carbon reduction targets

The climate emergency is pushing society to think more about the ways in which they use energy, and in particular how to be more efficient. As a result, the energy market has seen considerable growth with green incentives schemes, the introduction of smart home products, and the smart meter roll-out. However, many SMEs are being left behind, due to an existing market failure, with no way of accessing the information they need to help reduce their emissions.  And yet, a total of 25% of the UK carbon emissions comes from SMEs – making them a crucial part to tackling climate change.

This energy company’s energy management system is addressing this market failure and transforming the way SMEs view energy in their business, empowering them to take more control. Their energy management system delivers intelligent data analytics and personalised business insights which are derived from using the customers energy data. To ensure the AEMS service was accessible to all types of SMEs, two energy monitoring products were developed in order to satisfy both single and three phase monitoring. 

Within months of working with us, the system was distributed to a range of SMEs across the whole of the UK. In addition, the energy company was able to secure high-profile partnerships with the likes of Centrica to offer the product to their non-domestic customers. 

The c2 platform enabled us to quickly develop an energy management system that is now used nation-wide by over 65 small-to-medium and independent businesses.
