Pilio Limited – provides a cost-effective online tool enabling small and medium businesses to monitor and manage their energy usage. The tool can enable savings of up to 40 per cent from energy bills.
Pilio’s online energy monitoring tool, sMeasure, was developed and piloted at the University’s Environmental Change Institute as part of a research project funded by the UK Energy Research Centre looking at ways to Pilio reduce energy demand. It has been available online for three years and in the last year has been used by over 400 businesses to monitor their energy use.
sMeasure works by combining two sets of data: gas and electricity meter readings provided by the customer and weather data, to accurately assess a building’s energy efficiency. It requires no additional meters or devices
“sMeasure allows companies to implement their environmental and energy policy. We have kept the cost for our customers low at a subscription of £120 a year per building. Using the tool requires only 5 minutes a week to input meter readings.”
“sMeasure helps companies to use their own common sense to stop energy being wasted in their buildings. They can look at their patterns of energy use over time so they can spot peaks, troughs and abnormalities, which will alert them to problems with their building control settings or prompt them to carry out maintenance work.”
