Considerate Hoteliers and EnergyDeck have joined forces to launch ‘Con-Serve’ a brand new sustainability assessment platform for hotels

Considerate Hoteliers, the UK’s oldest established and only network for responsible hoteliers and EnergyDeck, an award-winning, crowd-based energy analytics platform, sign a strategic partnership to enable hoteliers around the world to save energy and resources.

For the first time international hoteliers will be able to collaborate and share data via the Con-Serve platform, which allows hotels to dramatically reduce the cost, risk and time it takes to be more environmentally and financially sustainable.

Whilst hotels can save up to 20% of energy usage* through simple measures, it has been historically difficult for midsize and smaller hoteliers to economise on the same level. Traditional approaches to energy tracking and management have relied on cumbersome spreadsheets or legacy tools that are expensive to deploy and difficult to use. The implementation of savings measures has also been hampered because it is difficult for many hoteliers to get access to relevant and independent advice on what projects are most effective for a specific building type and environment.


IoT and the impact on Energy Efficiency

It's been a busy time at EnergyDeck as we start adding more customers and features to our platform. We are constantly monitoring what is happening in the technology and energy/clean tech sectors so our platform is meeting and getting ahead of our customers requirements. One of trends that we are constantly monitoring is the impact of IoT on energy efficiency. One of the biggest challenges in driving energy efficiency at home and in the commercial space is the availability of energy data. Smart meters add huge value in increasing the frequency, accuracy and availability of consumption data but their take up is still slow. Smart meters for commercial use can still cost several hundred pounds and the fact that meter operators practically own the data (charging collection and management fees for every single meter feed) further compounds the “legacy” aspect of today’s energy management industry.

New Plans and Pricing

If you are an EnergyDeck customer, you will have recently received an email to tell you that we have migrated your account to a new plan. This is because we have simplified our account structure to align better with our customers’ needs, which in turn will allow us to develop more specific account functionality to provide everyone a better EnergyDeck experience.

So what have we done and what’s in it for you?

If you work in technology, you probably know about the CeBIT trade show that takes place in Hanover every year. After all, it's the largest technology trade show in the world and has been going since 1986.

This year, the UK is the partner country for CeBIT so you should see a lot of British companies in attendance, including a number of exciting start-ups, one of which is EnergyDeck.

Keeping everyone engaged - Alerts and notifications

Bruno Girin

January 22, 2014

EnergyDeck just introduced a new facility to the platform to help you keep on top of your consumption. You can now setup alerts on any meter so that you get notified when the consumption linked to that meter is outside of pre-defined limits. For example, if you have a building that typically consumes roughly 1000kWh of electricity every month, you can set up a few monthly alerts:

  • An upper limit at 1000kWh so that you are notified when the consumption goes above the average for any given month;
  • A lower limit at 800kWh so that you are notified when the consumption has been significantly below average for any given month;
  • An upper limit at 500kWh so that you get a notification when it goes past the half way point: if that point is reached after the 15th day of the month, you should be within limits for the remainder of that month; if it is reached before the 15th day of the month, you still have time to investigate and address over-consumption so that the month’s consumption falls within expected limits.
