Data Collection

Gathering our raw material

Accurate data is the raw material for all our services. It is the cornerstone of successful energy management. It enables us to accurately measure your energy usage, analyse usage patterns across sites and processes, compare performance against previous months or years, set targets for improvements, calculate your carbon emissions and perform all of the other advisory, monitoring and reporting services that we are renowned for.

Data is so important to our services that we collect it from your meters ourselves. That way we know we have accurate consumption data direct from the source.

We collect usage data from electricity, gas and water meters. Most of this data collection is done remotely using Automated Meter Reading (AMR) equipment, and sent directly to our central systems. We collect data from the same meters used by your energy supplier to collect their meter readings, so we are always working with accurate primary data..
