Smart energy monitoring rollout reaches 81% approval rating, research finds

Almost 81% percent of UK citizens would recommend a smart meter or smart energy monitoring system to others, a recent survey by Smart Energy GB has been able to suggest.

The company’s Smart energy outlook research report shows that a large majority of people with smart meters are using the technology on a regular basis to keep their energy costs under control. Eighty two per cent of people with smart meters are taking steps to reduce their energy use.

The research also shows that those who have in-home displays (IHDs) installed are using them regularly to save energy. Eight out of ten people with an IHD check it regularly. Nearly nine in ten (88 per cent) of those with an IHD say that they have a better idea of what they’re spending on energy, compared to 76 per cent of those who have a smart meter but not an IHD.

HeatingSave – leading developers of Smart Energy Monitoring Systems

The HeatingSave Building Energy Monitor is a wireless management system that collects information from sensors placed in a building. It is unobtrusive and causes minimal disruption during installation. The system collects internal and external temperature data, along with information on how the heating system works and details of energy use. It also monitors the way a building is used in terms of its occupancy and the occupants’ activities and lifestyles.

Using a password protected standard WiFi connection, sensors can quickly be set up to review and quantitatively analyse the data with user-friendly software graphics, via a laptop, PC, mobile phone or tablet-based device.

A cable connection to the building router also enables data to be uploaded to HeatingSave’s cloud storage servers, where it can be analysed by sophisticated software. This provides a clear understanding of the real impact of energy efficiency measures, for example through pre-installation analysis and post-installation monitoring.

Building owners can access their energy usage details online to help them manage energy use more efficiently. This information is presented using a dashboard system that provides consolidated and drill down views of the energy use data.
