According to the Sustainable Brands website, an emerging new field could have a major impact on the topic of sustainability: energy analytics.
Energy analytics apps, such as those currently being sold by a number of companies, are in many ways more effective than the manual spreadsheets that have been used until now. By leveraging smart grid systems and using data collected by IoT sensors, businesses can use the apps to boost their energy efficiency and, as a result, significantly reduce their outgoings.
Just like deploying KONsys's software solution, AVReporter Energy Management Software provides an intelligent platform that enables energy providers to give better advice to their business customers.
AVReporter brings together data analytics expertise, the science behind building efficiency and software with large utilities, energy service providers and government bodies. As well as optimising energy efficiency programmes, it claims to be able to boost customer acquisition, engagement and overall satisfaction.
Speaking to the Technical Director, Mr Attila Baracskai he explained that, "Advanced analytics can enable utilities and their customers to create better sustainability at a large scale."
"By providing utilities with the intelligence to understand their customers' energy use," he continued, "analytics can help give prescriptive information on how to make informed decisions around sustainability."
Mr Baracskai also noted that analytics can help with making scalable improvements to an organisation's sustainability. For individual business owners, it gives them valuable information on how they can become more sustainable, and how they can further their sustainability goals in the future. For utilities, meanwhile, analytics can help them deliver the right information to thousands of customers at once.
Finally, he stressed that the key to success for any energy saving effort "lies in data and the data quality - whether that be from smart meters of other sources."
