A DESIGNER-LED SMART METER TO IMPROVE THE PAYBACK ON A RENEWABLE ENERGY INVESTMENT

Source: Inside Technology, issue 10, www.ttp.com

 

Energeno Ltd is developing smart energy-saving devices which work with renewable

power installations. The aim of the company is to provide in-home and web-based

tools for owners of renewable energy systems, funders of solar installations, and

maintenance companies to enable them to obtain the highest payback on their

renewables investment.

The other new product is an intelligent controller, called ‘Optimmersion’ which was launched in January 2013. The devicecautomatically diverts free (i.e. surplus) electricity generated by 

the solar array to an immersion heater to provide free hot water.

There are plans to develop other products, either under the Wattson or Opti-range labels. As an example, the company would like to offer a range of energy storage subsystems so that homeowners can store self-generated, or off-peak electricity, which can be used in place of peak-rate electricity imported from the grid. The eventual aim is a trade sale once Energeno has reached critical mass in its main target markets.

I really like this idea. The light is a genius idea however, would it not be more logical to have the green light as an indicator you are at your greenest.
