Thanks to the Carbon Act, many companies in the UK are already working on decreasing energy consumption, but many energy efficiency plans are focused just on electricity. Ever since Brexit, energy consumers in the UK have seen wholesale gas prices rise 34%. Plus a 24% electricity prices increase. And winter is coming. That's why there's no better time than now to learn about how heating optimisation (gas, thermal and fuel tanks) will help your SME or ESCO this year.

You and your clients have great ideas for making buildings and companies more efficient. But when it comes to transforming ideas into reality, money can be a frustrating roadblock. Many ESCOs and utilities claim that there’s a lack of accessible funding for energy efficiency in the market. After a bit of research, we can show you that this assumption is simply untrue. To demonstrate this, we’ve created a free guide to help you get from ideas to action!

The end of the year is just around the corner, and all energy managers know what that means: planning next year’s energy budget while ensuring the current year’s books are balanced so 2017 can be started afresh. But what happens when your supervisor asks you to give an accurate prediction for next year’s energy budgeting and forecasting plan? You don’t have a crystal ball, nor can you make such complex calculations on the back of a napkin. What if you could give a precise figure instantly, in real time and based on your actual data? Thankfully, there’s an app for that!

You’re a busy energy manager - goodness knows you haven't got any time to follow the maddening circus that is the US Presidential Election, never mind sort through the raging dumpster fire to understand each candidate’s stance on energy issues. (RIP Ken Bone - we barely knew ye.)So, with less than one week remaining until Election Day, we did it for you!No matter where in the world you are managing energy, the outcome of this historic event will likely affect energy policy and markets globally - especially where renewables are concerned. That's partly because when it comes to energy issues, the candidates and their respective parties couldn't be more opposed. While Donald Trump is pushing hard for fossil fuels, Clinton is advocating for clean power, on which her energy platform is almost entirely based.Before we take a look at each candidate’s views and energy proposals, let's examine the official platform of their respective parties.

It's almost 2017, and by now smart meters are probably flooding your utility with zetabytes of data. Fantastic, right? But wait - that data deluge is totally worthless if you don’t do anything with it!An open API for energy can help by maximising the value of the massive amounts of data collected by large energy services companies and utilities by exposing it to brilliant developers that want to experiment and create amazing and useful applications.Chances are you’ve heard the acronym API being thrown around left right and centre, but let's recap in case you don’t know what those letters actually mean...

Like nature versus nurture, the war between on-premise versus software-as-a-service (SaaS) rages on, and it’s no different in the world of energy analytics. In this post you’ll find a comprehensive breakdown of the advantages and disadvantages of each type of deployment in the context of Energy Management Software (EMS), so you can figure out which is best for your ESCO.

Ever visited the DEXMA pricing page ? You probably noticed that data points are kind of a big deal. It’s important to understand this concept for a few reasons: not only to ensure a well-defined budget for your energy platform, but also to create a solid energy monitoring structure and plan a watertight savings strategy. So let’s unpack the data point concept together!
