Data-driven insights from Internet of Things (IoT) devices are enabling energy and sustainability experts to make better-informed decisions like never before. Energy use within buildings is inherently variable, and until recently, even the brightest minds were in the dark when it came to explaining fluctuations in usage, due to the long list of factors that can cause a building’s energy usage to change seemingly at random. Having a fundamental understanding of how a building uses energy and what causes it to change is essential to optimising performance in the long term.

Businesses and organisations are becoming increasingly aware of the need to monitor and manage their water consumption, as evidenced by the growing amount of water-consumption data that are being submitted into a global sustainability-benchmarking database that Fabriq has been assembling.


Reading Into Meters - Part 1

Jack White

February 25, 2016

If you lease, rent or own a property, it’s highly likely you’ll have a meter installed somewhere. Meters are found in nearly all commercial and domestic buildings. The most common meters are those which measure utility services, such as electricity, gas, water and heat networks. Other metering technologies are used for sensing e.g. air quality, temperature, light and so on.

This post explains the different types of meters prevalent in buildings today (commercial and residential) and what they can be used for. Later on in this series we will go into more detail on metering technologies, metering installation project management and last but not least benefits and insights good metering can provide.
