Energy efficiency

Our view on Energy efficiency is to be able to use less energy to provide the same service or using less power but more output.

We consult in Smart systems where we look at the developments towards smarter management of the demand side and the effects on the supply side.

Smart Meters – Better oversight and management of your energy use with a real time data display

Smart Appliances – Products that uses electricity as its main power source has the capability to receive, interpret and act on a signal received from the utility, third party energy service provider or home energy management device, and automatically respond and adjusts its operations depending on both the signals contents and settings from the consumer.

Smart Buildings – A smart building is highly energy efficient and covers its very low energy demand to a large extent by on-site or district-system-driven renewable energy sources.

A smart building:

  • stabilises and drives a faster decarbonisation of the energy systems through energy storage and demand side flexibility;
  • empowers its users and occupants with control over the energy flows;
  • recognises and reacts to users' and occupants’ needs in terms of comfort, health, indoor air quality, safety as well as operational requirements.

Smart Grids - Employs innovative products and services together with intelligent monitoring, control, communication, and self-healing technologies to:

  • Facilitate the connections and operation of generators of all sizes and technologies
  • Allowing consumers to play apart in optimising the operation of the system
  • Provide consumers with greater information and choice of supply
  • Significantly reduce the environmental impact of the whole electricity supply system
  • Deliver enhanced levels of reliability and security of supply.

We have the view that Smart technologies can contribute to occupant comfort, convenience, and control with reduced energy input and the need to transition from programmed technologies and complex interfaces can reduce user agency and flexibility, which can lead to sub-optimal energy use.

Our Smart design incorporates differing levels of know-how and demand for energy services in residential populations, balancing technology delegation with opportunities for user control
