Exception alerts are the bread and butter for most energy management platforms. In fact, you’d be hard-pressed to find a platform that doesn’t offer them as a feature in some capacity. But in all honesty, how many times have you seen them actually work?On the surface, they look pretty straight forward. Set some arbitrary thresholds, and wait to be notified when something goes wrong. One of two scenarios takes place:
You would be forgiven for expecting this to be a post from the CEO / founder of the business in which s/he shares insights about the challenging journey of building a business and how it, almost never, resembled what they expected… (here's what Ben had to say about it last year). Or possibly a blog about how no amount of MBA entrepreneurship courses one might take, how many books or blogs one might read, how many founder entrepreneurs one might know closely, invariably, the reality always turns out differently to the imaginary.
We are pleased to announce that Fabriq has entered into a partnership with the Energy Managers Association (EMA)! More specifically, Fabriq will collaborate with the EMA to package up a solution dedicated to streamlining the process for UK businesses that are required to comply with the recently-introduced Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting (SECR) requirements.
2018 is coming to an end and what a year it has been! But we wouldn’t be Fabriq, if we just left it at that and didn’t end the year on a high. To cap it all off, we are introducing some exciting improvements we recently made to the Fabriq OS platform, proven to help optimise building-performance management.
We are thrilled to be working with Savills, and want to take the opportunity to mention the possibilities that the Fabriq OS platform is expected to offer Savills as well as their clients who are committed to actively managing their real-estate portfolios’ sustainability performance.
Earlier in the year, we partnered with First Business Water to launch ‘WaterDeck’, a platform powered by Fabriq that was designed to help First Business Water’s customers effectively monitor their water consumption. It has been almost six months since WaterDeck was launched, and with a scorching and dry summer that highlighted the increasing importance of taking a more pro-active approach on water conservation now behind us, it is a good opportunity to provide an update on our partnership with First Business Water.
It’s been a while ...Six years almost to this date to be exact - that we have been active in the market with EnergyDeck. 50 data source integrations, 5,000 buildings and 25,000 data feeds later, we’re still alive and kicking, and going stronger than ever.
Hot off the press: The UK’s Better Buildings Partnerships has appointed EnergyDeck as its new supplier for the Real Estate Environmental Benchmark (REEB). EnergyDeck’s CEO Benjamin Kott talks about the objectives and history of REEB, and why this appointment is good news not just for EnergyDeck but the industry as a whole.
At EnergyDeck we’re busy building features that enable users to get to grips with how effective their energy efficiency audits really are. The latest piece of this puzzle was launched last week - users now have the capability to add projects to audit records, which in turn drops them automatically into your projects portfolio.
A key part of the ongoing development of the EnergyDeck platform is becoming involved with R&D projects. These projects allow us to work with partner companies and organisations to extend the range of experience and expertise we can call upon when creating new functionality for all EnergyDeck users.
At EnergyDeck we believe that for our users to successfully run their buildings better the essential first step is having confidence in their data. So to support this confidence, enabling better analysis and decision making, we’ve recently launched a brand new feature: Data Quality.
