Big data is about to transform the energy performance of the I&C sector, according to Stewart Love, Energy Assets’ newly-appointed Director of Strategic Development.
Stewart joins Energy Assets, the UK’s leading independent metering services provider, with expertise in energy infrastructure via National Grid and high level experience in the leisure and gaming sector…both of which equip him to address head-on the energy requirements of commercial organisations.
I truly believe we are entering an era which will redefine the way that energy managers utilise data to improve efficiency,” says Stewart.
“Energy managers have long been able to collect and analyse information through AMR and online tools – but what has been missing to date has been the ability to delve deeper into the fundamentals of energy consumption.
“All that is about to change through data systems that will take a much more forensic view of energy consumption. Using Energy Assets’ AMR-DNA technology, for example, we can now interrogate many thousands of records going back a number of years and see the ‘fingerprint’ evidence of where energy is being wasted. And, of course, once we pinpoint these areas, we can change human and automated behaviour to save energy…and in some instances, this could amount to many thousands of pounds, maybe millions for the I&C sector as a whole.”
In his new role, Stewart will be working closely with energy suppliers and end-users to enhance existing relationships and build new ones, supporting the roll-out of a portfolio of metering and control technologies across gas, electricity and water that will continue to elevate Energy Assets’ position as a leading innovator in the I&C energy market.
