Link between EnergyDeck and ESOS Auditor will make ESOS compliance quicker and easier

Performance analytics firm IES and energy management platform provider EnergyDeck have today announced a partnership that will allow EnergyDeck customers to link the platform with IES’ ESOS Auditor to enable a quicker and easier route to ESOS compliance.

The UK’s Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) requires approximately 10,000 qualifying organisations to undertake energy audits that include 12 months of verifiable data.

These organisations are now looking for the best and most efficient ways to collect, validate, evidence and store all the data required to calculate their total energy consumption and undertake energy audits. Each participating organisation needs to build an evidence pack to evidence the information in their ESOS compliance assessment.

Walking the Road to Digitisation – the Opportunity of IoE for UK Start-ups

Phil Smith

April 07, 2015

Whatever else March is, it certainly can’t be accused of being uneventful for UK start-ups. Last week’s budget proved promising for the community, highlighting the government’s intention to provide further investment and support to drive growth for small businesses around the country.

Location, as they say, can be everything. To accelerate growth in the North, the budget outlined an £11 million investment in government support for the development of tech incubators in Manchester, Leeds and Sheffield – which will undoubtedly help drive further innovation across the country, and is a move that is symbiotic to our own efforts to encourage innovation, entrepreneurship and collaboration across the UK, particularly through our National Virtual Incubator programme.

The Building Energy Puzzle

Benjamin Kott

March 17, 2015

Building Energy PuzzleHow difficult can it be to put four puzzle pieces together? With a regular puzzle, a two year old could do it. In the building energy world, even the most skilful building and energy managers regularly fail at the task. As a result most buildings are operated well below their efficiency optimum. And it’s not for a lack of experience. Equipment is also not the issue – we have the technology in place today to design, build and operate highly efficient buildings, even without employing rocket science or black magic.

So what then, is the issue? Simply speaking, it’s one of stakeholder engagement. But not the type of ‘stakeholder engagement’ that is typically referred to when it comes to behaviour change projects, and often limited to tenants. The stakeholders here span a much wider range. In an ideal scenario, the entire “building management stack” from landlords to building managers, FMs, contractors, consultants, energy providers and tenants would be engaged and aligned with one objective in mind: run the building as efficiently as possible, and generate benefits for everyone involved.

How can this be done, you ask? Just follow these three easy steps:

  1. Understand the core drivers and motivations of each stakeholder group, and how they can benefit from efficiently operated buildings
  2. Identify the data and information that is required to asses the operating performance of the building and manage it, including the data owners, data type and quality
  3. Bring it all together in a single platform that represents the ‘single version of the truth’, is hardware agnostic, enables easy sharing across stakeholders and, above all, delivers meaningful insights that ultimately drive building efficiency.

The good news is: the technology to do this exists today, the benefits are there for everyone and the business case works out. Let’s solve the puzzle together, shall we!

Connecting the world, one data source at a time: new meter suppliers and data collectors supported by EnergyDeck

February 10, 2015

We’ve previously looked at how we will be supporting our users’ access to high quality data by simplifying data acquisition through out of the box integration with hardware and other data providers. Since then, we’ve been hard at work extending this capability and have now over a dozen data sources available, with many more already in the pipeline.
