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.

Google buys Nest: data / privacy implications

Bruno Girin

January 14, 2014

The Internet was in a bit of a frenzy last night as Google announced that they acquired Nest for a cool $3.2 billion. Everybody from technology web sites like TechCrunch or The Register to general media like the BBC and The Guardian had something to say about it and analysis to offer. The original press release doesn’t say much so everything beyond this is speculation.

At EnergyDeck, we have a team composed of former employees of Google and Opower among others, working on an innovative web-based solution for energy management in buildings. So it goes without saying that we’re rather excited about the news. However, I’d like to take a step back and look at the acquisition and potential implications for users from a pure data and technology standpoint.

Making it Easy To Manage Complex Tariffs

As we have nearly 1000 registered users on EnergyDeck, I thought I would share a very useful piece of insight into the use a cool feature that has been live on the platform for a few months now. This particular feature is an extension to our contract and tariff support and is all about making it easier for you to track costs that result from energy use.

Our initial contract and tariff implementation allowed you to group tariffs within contracts and assign a single charge to each tariff. Of course, this is not quite the way real life works. Most tariffs have more than one charge, there is a mix of consumption linked charges, standing charges and percentage based charges like VAT. So we added that in.
