Home Energy Management

Executive Summary

The client was challenged with flattening margins and increased demand for energy optimization across the value chain. To perform large scale energy management and to take quick actions on energy loss at any link, the client required an extensive data capture, aggregation and analysis capabilities. This is despite optimizing the existing cost structure and timelines.

eInfochips designed an end-to-end framework, augmenting the current metering endpoints to capture extensive set of data, adding real-time dashboarding and the scalability of cloud.The extended solution also offered a means for consumers to monitor/control the energy usage from Android/iOS handhelds.

The client benefited with effective user, energy and device data monitoring ensuring smoother operations and creating a parallel revenue opportunity for the client, adding the power of data insights to strategic decisions and revenue models.

Executive Summary

In the U.S., 20% of generation assets are used only for 5% of the time, that is, during the peak demands. A US household on average uses 13,868 kWh every year, a spending of 900$. The blackout, as was in 2003, can be prevented with effective energy conservation and management, both-on the provider and consumer end. The client, a leader in connected home technologies offered a solution based on demand-response concept to effectively monitor and control the home energy usage.

The client’s existing solution delivered energy usage data for consumers to pre-set their energy usage and expenditure limits. The data was extracted on daily/weekly/monthly basis and on device-specific basis. The proposed solution was to extend the access zone for the solution, currently limited to homepremises. Enabling for web service, machine-to-machine interactions could also be established with the utility metering system and other 3rd – party applications.

The extended solution offered a means to monitor and control the energy usage from Android and iOS handhelds. The utilites benefited with effective user account monitoring to manage peak demands.
