AlertMe smart meters saving money
Enable household energy savings by using information technology.
Across the UK around 30 million smart meters will be installed by 2019. These will help energy providers better respond to customer demand and enable more visibility for consumers of the energy they use. A combination of both is expected to lead to cuts in overall energy demand and greater efficiency in its distribution.
AlertMe aim to go even further. They provide energy monitoring equipment and software via a cloud-based platform to turn households into ‘smart homes’. The user can control home systems remotely via smart phones and programme more intelligent use of energy by appliances. In combination with smart meters, trials suggested energy use could be cut by 69%, and even for those homes without smart meters, 62% savings could be achieved with the AlertMe systems.
