New resource for Social Housing

We have created a leaflet for installers of Wattson Solar Plus for Social Housing to leave-behind for tenants.

It is a straightforward document that explains how to use the Wattson display provided, as well as how tenants can reduce their bills even further. The leaflet has received the Crystal Mark approval by the plain english campaign.


We hope that both tenants and installers alike can understand it and make good use of it.

Optimmersion update - March 2014

The functionality of Optimmersion has been improved for more flexible customer configuration. These improvements include a more intuitive slider switch, easier steps for setting the system and individual priority settings for each boost period as well as for normal operation (not for Simple).

The improvements also include easier visibility of the data received in Optimmersion Wireless, a simplified user manual for customers to understand the colour display and the commissioning process found in the installer manual  has been broken down into steps.

It is imperative that all Optimmersion installations are conducted following the manual provided in the box as the wiring and commissioning is specific to the product supplied.

For more information, you can read more about this in our Knowledge Base.

"The feedback overall was great, and everyone was interested in the products!" Max Parker, EH Smith Sustainable Products.

Overall, the team is happy with the quality of the turnout and the feedback received.

Attendees all seemed interested and were engaging with the sales team during the Q&A session.

The items covered were functionality and installation of Wattson Solar Plus (with and without Easifit), Optiplug and Optimmersion (all versions).

We discussed the possibility of running hot tubs with the Optimmersion and the idea of using the Optiplug with infrared heaters.

Energy Efficiency

The smart grid, with real-time monitoring, will lower energy consumption and identify inneficient or defective appliances. The Energeno Wattson started life as a simple tool to measure electricity consumption: its product range now extends to systems to measure and distributte energy from "off grid" sources, such as solar panels.

"Micro-generation" will help to realise the energy savings of smart buildings, along with demand management: a smart dishwasher might recommend waiting an hour before activation, because the grid tells it that demand is high.

Energeno supports ETV

EU Environmental Technology Verification 

On 12 February 2014, the Centre for Carbon Measurement at NPL held the first Scottish Environmental Technology Verification (ETV) Workshop at the Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation. 

Mark Elliott, Chief Operations Officer at Energeno Ltd said: “We are a small company and we are very proud of our products, both the iconic Wattson Solar Plus energy monitor and our new Optimmersion product. We see the ETV scheme as an important way of showing the benefits of our product over the competition, which would not be possible using general standards. The fact that ETV is backed by the European Commission means it is easily understood by our international customers as a mark of quality and proof that our product claims are independently verified.”

Andy Trewin, Optimmersion Specialist at Energeno shared experiences from an SME perspective, where competitors make un-verified claims that make it hard to gain a competitive edge. Energeno are undertaking ETV to prove their technology works at a higher performance than other similar technologies on the market, enabling a larger market share for a novel technology that does not have the support of industry standards.

Andy ETV

What is ETV?

The EU Environmental Technology Verification (ETV) is a three-year pilot programme aimed at helping innovative environmental technologies reach the market. Often novel technologies lack industry standards and a ‘track record’ which investors require in order to finance commercial scale take-up. ETV aims to bridge the gap between market ready technology and investor confidence by providing a third party verification statement that confirms the technology ‘does what it says on the tin’.

Optimmersion – It’s A No Brainer!

Source: SunGift Trade February News & Special Offers, 14.02.14

Over the last year we have seen many products come into the market that export additional electricity produced from your PV array into your hot water tank. We have been rather cautious when approaching these types of products as we like to be sure that the products are of top quality and we believe we have found this in the Optimmersion.

Click here for a quick introduction to the Optimmersion.

Optimmersion comes with a whole host of great sales points. Here are a few that caught our eye:

• The Optimmersion can be bought as a wireless unit as well as a wired unit.
• User Friendly – Colour screen that indicates ‘at a glance’ how your system is generating.
• More information – The Optimmersion also shows you how much electricity your PV is generating in real time as well as what your house is using, so lots more information than other brands.
• More hot water – The Optimmersion only needs 50w surplus to kick in, other brands need around 200w, heat your water for longer.
• Easy Install – Like anything, it takes a while to get use to new products but we see installation time as being an hour and a half decreasing the more you install!
• Cost – The Optimmersion does more for less! It is really cost effective and gives a lot more information than other brands on the display, leaving you with a very happy customer.
