Imperial College was measuring energy usage in a London housing estate. They wanted to be able to trigger usage reductions and, when necessary, activate a mass shut down.
Working together with Imperial College London, and their Environmental Improvement Division we built a platform that can connect with Smart Internet Connected devices and feed usage information back to a central hub. We then used that information to run tests and analysis to encourage energy reduction.
- The system can implement forced shutdowns to save energy if necessary.
- Through effective monitoring of energy usage and by triggering energy usage reductions within the housing estate, we were able to reduce consumption by 13%
