The Challenge:

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.

Our Solution:

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 Benefits:

  • 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%
